About My Clients

Many of my clients seek me out to reconnect to themself, to others, and to their inner wisdom. I work often with others in their journey through identity explorations, anxiety, stress, grief and loss, body image and the healing of trauma.

My Background and Approach

I am a counselor, yoga therapist and currently being training in Somatic Experiencing (a body-based approach to healing trauma). Along with a holistic approach that considers the body, mind, and heart of an individual, I draw from person-centered and existential therapy, attachment theory, intersectional feminism and neuroscience. I also work from the lens of social justice and Health at Every Size (HAES). I am a LGBTQIA+ affirming therapist.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I aim to hold curious, compassionate space and empower my clients to reconnect to the voice of their innate inner wisdom. It is my belief that many of the difficulties we encounter in our lives are due to separation, whether it be from caregivers, community, or our own body and heart. Healing can begin by reaching out to another for guidance and reestablishing connection. While I may have knowledge of certain theories and tools, I believe that you are the expert of your experience. I will encourage you to be an active participant in the process of your healing in order to create positive and sustained changes that align with your values. I also believe that the body is a powerful ally in this journey. Tuning into the body is a radical act in a world strongly driven by the mind. Our body can be both a doorway to the present moment and to past experiences. Our work together may include a variety of practices such as mindfulness, movement, or other somatic techniques.
