My Approach to Helping

In our work together, my intention is to hold a space in which you can begin to contact all parts of yourself with a sense of curiosity and gentleness. We will begin to untangle and rework the harsh ways you may be used to relating to yourself, leaving something more peaceful and kind in their place. I believe that the therapeutic relationship itself is integral to the healing that takes place in therapy. When we feel safe enough to trust and open up, then we can begin the work we need to do on ourselves.

My training is in Contemplative Psychotherapy from Naropa University, an approach which includes awareness of present moment experience, attention to the body and its wisdom, and a deep sense of spaciousness. Becoming more aware of the harmful ways in which we relate to ourselves is essential to beginning to change. We will build this awareness together.

My areas of focus include struggles with food and body image, LGBTQAI+ identities, anxiety, depression, substance abuse, relationships and more (I also work with teens 16 and older). I see the presenting issues that plague us humans as symptoms of a deeper pain, and that is what we will work to contact and bring healing to in our time together.
