My Approach to Helping

I provide an empathetic and compassionate environment that allows my clients to move through painful experiences in the past that leave them feeling stuck in their present lives. Often times, the strategies that we used to survive in the past are now getting in the way of feeling good in our bodies, healthy in our relationships and free to be our authentic selves. I am inspired by the brave and courageous work my clients do and am honored to be part of their journey towards healing.

More Info About My Practice

I describe my style of counseling as down-to-earth, compassionate, authentic, and at times, humorous. Although my clients often report doing deeper work than ever before, I believe that counseling should be fun as well. My goal is to create an environment of curiosity and compassion while also challenging my clients to learn, evolve and grow. I also draw on my skills as a certified yoga instructor to bring mindfulness and breathing resources to enhance the therapeutic process.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

Usually the things that we struggle with started as an answer to pain. Anxiety, perfectionism, depression, even self-harming behavior started out as having adaptive qualities. The things that we most want to change about ourselves were (and at times, still are) helpful. Our struggles usually either kept us feeling safe or kept us attached to our caregivers. For example, some coping strategies helped us numb out from the pain, which allowed us to have a sense of control over the situation. These coping strategies were really helpful, but now they are getting in our own way. By greeting our struggles with compassion and curiosity, while also building new resources and coping skills, we are able to get to the root of the pain and allow it to process through the system. This can be challenging, but the relief and empowerment on the other side is well worth it. We cannot go around our pain, can't go over it, gotta go through it! You got this!
