About My Clients

I often work with sensitive people who feel like the world is too much and may struggle with the balance of caring for others with caring for the self. I also help people who struggle with their relationship with food and body, and those who struggle to with the past, including traumatic events. Therapy can offer the tools and support so you can show up courageously in your life in a present, connected, and embodied way.

My Background and Approach

I work from the perspectives of anti-oppression, including anti-racism, anti-diet, anti-ableism, and trauma-informed. I help emotionally sensitive people understand their responses, build excellent coping skills, and move forward with important goals. I love working with creative folks, including fellow artists and healers. I provide a space where you are seen, honored, understood, and not judged. My background is in mindfulness-based approaches that offer solid skills and practices (including DBT and ACT). Also, I'm an artist, writer, and a little bit woo-woo. So in our work together, we might talk about brain science, spirituality, and creative practices. We'll probably practice some grounding techniques. It's likely that we will explore what you want to do and, with compassion and curiosity, figure out what's holding you back. Our work will be collaborative and tailored towards your goals and interests.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Living according to values takes focus, determination, and clarity and to do this, we all need support and skills. Along with my years of therapy training, I've also done personal therapy work and spiritual work; I bring this understanding to the work we do together. It is an act of compassion to turn towards difficulties and seek out healing and groundedness. I know this is hard to do, and you don't have to do it alone. I'm here to help you get more present and more connected in your life.
