About My Clients
I'm dedicated to working with all people. My clients are often those keenly aware of the complex time we live in, and of the conscious and unconscious patterns that are preventing them from achieving their professional, personal, and spiritual goals. These unconscious patterns can show up as chronic stress, depression, anxiety, lack of motivation, insomnia, relationship issues, or a general feeling of being off course.
My Background and Approach
I believe therapy should help you access your innate intuition and insight, and the therapist's role is to provide support and guidance in that process. My work weaves together tools and interventions from evidence based practices, such as Internal Family Systems and Nonviolent Communication. I draw on narrative, relational and feminist approaches to therapy, as well as my background in the contemplative traditions, as a student of yoga and meditation for 20+ years. I seek to accompany the people I work with on their path of awareness and self-understanding, and to support them to create the thriving relationships they want.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
As a cis, white female, I strive to more fully understand the power and privilege in my gender and my race. I'm working towards building my awareness of how racism, sexism, white privilege, heterosexism, homophobia, transphobia, xenophobia, ageism, ability, body size and social class has impacted myself and my communities. I seek to make space for everyone and to honor their individual stories. I love spending time in old forests, gardening, cooking, and dancing.
