About My Clients

When we live out of alignment with ourselves (our values, cycles, rhythms, core beliefs) life can become something we simply get through. If you're feeling stuck, uninspired, anxious, overwhelmed, or apathetic, it's probably a healthy reaction to an unhealthy situation. Our coping mechanisms can become harmful rather than helpful when left unexamined. Mindful counseling can help you examine your patterns, beliefs, relationships, and ways of being to let go of what no longer serves you.

My Background and Approach

Drawing on my background as a yoga instructor, reiki practitioner, and mindfulness instructor, I use a variety of holistic approaches to help support my client's healing. Humans are multidimensional (biological, psychological, spiritual) beings. I believe that we all have the inner-wisdom to know what we need, but oftentimes that inner voice is so quiet, and our cultural conditioning so loud, that we are disconnected from ourselves and therefore our own healing potential. I have experience working with clients who are dealing with anxiety, depression, addiction, identity, grief, and relationship issues. I use many different techniques from many different counseling theories, all under the umbrella of a trauma-informed, holistic, human-centered approach. I may bring new information, strategies, and knowledge to the table, but you are the expert of your own life. We will work together to create a personalized plan of healing, focusing on your goals for yourself (not my goals for you).

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe there are unlimited ways to live and be healthy, and that fear and judgment often stop us from living to our fullest potential. I believe that mental health is a social justice issue. As social beings who are hard-wired for connection, we cannot examine our own struggles without acknowledging and unpacking the systems that affect our everyday lives. Our cultural conditioning creates a lens through which we see ourselves and the world, and I believe there is incredible power in bringing awareness to that programming. When we become aware of how we've been conditioned, we gain the freedom to choose whether that serves us or not. As a highly sensitive person, I have worked hard in my own life to overcome anxiety and panic attacks, and am very passionate about sharing the tools that have helped me most with my own struggles. I am an intersectional feminist and feel honored to support anyone who identifies as part of an oppressed group.
