About My Clients

Have you ever felt paralyzed by your emotions or thoughts? Is it ever difficult to sort through them or even identify them? Have you experienced trauma that is difficult to talk about? Maybe you need to do more than talk about it. We experience thoughts, emotions, stress, and trauma on a body level. I can help you move through that paralyzing fear, navigate through trauma, and let go of stress. Let's work together on developing a practice that will help you cope and work through your struggles.

My Background and Approach

My goal as a therapist is to provide a comfortable space for anyone to be able to express themselves. I believe therapy is a journey that I accompany you on. Together we will discover more about you and your needs and find ways to cope that are directly beneficial to you. Through shared movement, we can work through any stress and pain you're experiencing, uncover unconscious thought patterns that may be inhibiting your growth, and become more mindful of our emotions and their effects on you. I have experience working in a substance use facility and an inpatient psychiatric center. This has allowed me to gain knowledge on how to work with diverse diagnoses recovering from differing issues. These experiences mixed with my educational background (MS in dance/movement therapy) provides for a unique therapeutic experience. Let's not just talk about it, let's move through it together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Moving is something that has had a huge impact on my life. It has helped me cope with a lot of different issues that I struggled with growing up and even now. When I went to graduate school I learned so much more about myself through studying dance/movement therapy and found the true impact movement can have on others. My goal is to share that knowledge with those who are struggling. I too have struggled in the past with feeling heard and my own mental health issues, so to all the people who need a place of acceptance for their true selves, I see you, and I am here for you. I will support you reguardless of how you identify or what you're interests are. So let's work together shall we?
