About My Clients

Are you wanting to feel better about yourself, or just feel better - period? Maybe you believe you're not good enough, or you rely fully on others for happiness. Maybe you're wrestling with parts of your identity or are wondering “who am I?” Or perhaps, you have had harm done to you, experienced something traumatic, or have difficult memories that you can't stop thinking about - or can't even think of. These struggles can affect so many areas of life, including our relationships.

My Background and Approach

Having pieces of yourself that feel unknown, unwanted, confusing, tattered, or hurt does not feel very good. What feels worse is running from yourself and your struggles - maybe not at first, but over time. It's time to stop running. It's time to face the hard parts - together. I aim to provide safety, cultural sensitivity, curiosity, empathy, and a sense of being known in our relationship. We'll identify the changes you want to make for your life and cultivate awareness, learn to relate to yourself and others in new ways, and heal from the inside out. Symptoms don't have to be in the driver's seat. Let's get you back in control of the wheel.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

There can be a stigma around mental health. We get advice like: Don't talk about it. Keep it to yourself. Don't look weak. Just pray it away. Distract yourself so you don't have to think about it. What I want you to know is: it's okay to not be okay. In fact, being human means we should be experiencing a full range of emotions - not just the "positive" ones. When we bring our suffering to the light, we start to heal. And after holding space for many people's stories over the years, what I know about that process is that it takes strength and courage to work on ourselves. In fact, I'd echo that, "owning our story and loving ourselves through that process is the bravest thing that we’ll ever do." (Brene Brown)
