About My Clients

Internally you are feeling a rollercoaster of emotions, and this imbalance is affecting your relationships, work life and overall sense of wellness. You notice your concentration is worse, patience is low, and irritability is high. You struggle with prioritizing yourself, communicating needs, setting boundaries and creating balance in your life. You know something must change, but nothing you’ve tried so far has worked long term. You feel that the next step is to reach out for external support.

My Background and Approach

My healing relationship with you will be personalized to your own needs utilizing an eclectic and integrative approach that combines Feminist Theory and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT). I chose to approach my work with clients through a feminist lens, because women today are still living under the social influence of a patriarchal context. Whether it’s in our inner lives, our intimate relationships, or our public lives, women continue to feel the impact of not having their needs taken seriously, and this includes mental health care. Mental health care from a feminist lens is not only about the treatment of symptoms, but also about being heard, finding fulfillment, loving and playing, learning and growing, and being flexible, free, and exercising choice in your own life. ACT is uniquely suited to help unlearn the toxic messages we’ve all been taught from birth about gender and what women are capable of, unlike the Western medical model that is patriarchal and authoritarian.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

During our time together, I will help you identify goals and direction, cope with current challenges or life transitions, increase skills and support and be an encouraging advocate by your side. We will work collaboratively to build the skills that lead to learning to cope in the moment, maintain your relationships, and take care of yourself again. The complexities of modern life as a woman combined with a struggle to enhance your mental well-being, have you feeling stuck, but there is so much hope in reaching out now. Know that you are not alone in this moment seeking out therapeutic support to enhance your healing process and to assist you with meeting your life goals.
