ABOUT ME

It is a true honor to be able to provide a safe space to support clients in finding their inner healing, deepest truths, and understanding more of the psyche. In therapy, we work collaboratively to discover and hold whatever you may be facing to find transformation through identifying thoughts and behavior patterns that may be interrupting access to your highest self. Together we will unlearn old patterns and invite new ones in through authentic connection and a felt sense of emotions to get closer to what lies beneath the surface.

My in-depth experience with kids has led me to work with adults who may have had turbulent childhoods who continue to see dysfunctional patterns in relationship to self or in relationship to others. I use relational work to guide you to your highest self to find a rewiring that is more healthy, regulated, and more in tune with your true needs and desires.

MY SPECIALTIES

INDIVIDUAL COUNSELING

I offer individual counseling in which we work one-on-one in a safe, caring, and confidential environment. Everyone has a unique reason they find themselves seeking support and therapy will be different depending on each individual goal.

THERAPEUTIC GOALS

My goal is to help you show up with more stability and insight into self. Life can be overwhelming and we often find ourselves holding on so tight we forget to see the magic around us. Once we find another compassionate listener, we finally relax into the space and heal. A warm therapeutic relationship offers a mirror into self, a true privilege to bestow.

FRAMEWORKS

I use a relational psychodynamic approach along with Attachment Theory, Mindfulness, Art, and Internal Family Systems parts work. Feel free to ask more about what these look like!
