About My Clients

Despite being hard working & compassionate, life is difficult because of past experiences. Maybe you have survived a grave loss, domestic violence, sexual trauma, an invalidating environment or a dysfunctional relationship and are struggling with coping with these experiences. When my clients first come in, they feel overwhelmed by what they have lived through. They experience intense reminders that get in the way of truly connecting with others.

My Background and Approach

Some people feel their experiences define their entire identity and this gets in the way of the life they want in so many ways. By examining these beliefs and enhancing their awareness of themselves and their values together, we can work towards a meaningful life defined by safety, respect and connection. This not out of reach. I believe each person has the ability to transcend negative experiences and create positive emotions and outcomes. In our sessions you can expect to have an anti-oppressive partner who will support you by listening and encouraging you along the way to reach your goals and to be your most authentic self.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a member of the LGBTQIA+ community, an ally of the Black Lives Matter Movement, an ally of the Indigenous Peoples and a feminist. My aim is to use my ever-growing, anti-oppressive foundation to ground my practice and to hold myself accountable to do my own work in order to be a true ally.
