About My Clients

I provide mindfulness-based and trauma informed therapy to individuals who want to learn more about themselves or grow out of old patterns. I have a special interest in addiction, trauma recovery and spiritual exploration. I can also offer you tools for coping with anxiety, depression, low self-esteem or stress.

My Background and Approach

As we move through life, we are not always given the resources we need to grow and evolve. We may feel overwhelmed with this task, wondering if we’re on the right path. My work as a therapist is to help you uncover your own intuition, courage and strength. I will hold a space that is safe for you to be vulnerable, without judgement, as you move through the phases of your life. My therapeutic approach is rooted in a holistic and humanistic perspective, considering the many aspects of your life and how they are expressed. My therapy style is authentic and solution focused. We'll work collaboratively to address your anxiety, fears and blocks to recovery. I will provide you with the tools and resources you need to live a life of authenticity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that under the right circumstances, we all have the innate capacity to heal. I don't believe there are any limits to who we can become. I do believe that in order for that to happen we need to feel safe. For me safety includes emotional, mental, spiritual and physical safety. I recognize that not all spaces are safe and many marginalized people have been harmed by the mental health profession. As your therapist, I will hold myself accountable and create a space of safety to ensure that the therapy process if reparative and empowering.
