About My Clients

You may be struggling with the aftermath of trauma, grief, or complicated feelings about your childhood that keep getting in the way of things. Right now you may be going through difficult life transitions like being a new parent, starting a new job or moving to a new place. I love supporting people who are working to undertake something they've never done before.

My Background and Approach

My approach is trauma-informed and compassion-based. I am currently being trained in EMDR therapy to treat symptoms of trauma and PTSD, low self-esteem, anxiety, depression and others. My work is shaped by my personal experiences of EMDR, EFT, IFS, yoga and extensive practice of Vipassana meditation. I venture to provide an honest, genuine and understanding space where all parts of you can be welcomed and given care. To that end, I am a big proponent of self-care and incorporating tangible practices that support your well-being, from proper hydration and nutrition to good sleep hygiene, relaxation practices and self-compassion meditations. I believe the relationship we have with ourselves is the most important one in our lives. I love to support people as they explore and develop that relationship. I focus on connecting the mind and body, and incorporate physical movement where useful.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a maker and mover at heart. I love to learn the different ways that people choose to live in this world. I'm a therapist who believes in the healing power that we each have inside of us. I'm a therapist who believes that what makes therapy successful is a willingness for all participants to step out of our comfort zones and enter the unknown together, as a team. I'm a therapist who understands that I am learning just as much from you, my client, as you are from me. And, I'm a therapist who trusts inner knowing beyond intellect or book smarts. For me, the art of therapy is in learning how to access these parts of ourselves. To that end, I am far more interested in the question, "what happened to/for you?" than "what's wrong with you?"
