My Approach to Helping
I help folks heal from the past, and find peace in the present! Post-traumatic growth is an important idea for therapy: we, as humans, are confronted with pains (trauma, loss, abuse or otherwise) that change us in deep ways. If we get stuck somewhere in the experience, we carry with us fear, self-doubt, shame or guilt, anxiety, resentment, or hopelessness. My goal is to lean in, get curious, and work through these experiences - my clients notice they actually come out stronger and more whole than they ever were before! I love what I do, because I help people find and trust themselves again. There is freedom as we move through past experiences that previously held us back. Helping my clients grow in self-compassion, connection, and self-worth is one of the most rewarding parts of the work.
While I deeply value my work with everyone I see, I offer special support to women, people who are historically disempowered, those with experiences of family addiction, and college students of all backgrounds. At this time, I am taking new individuals and couples.
