My Approach to Helping
DBT and EMDR Therapist
(also a dog mom and boba lover)
You’re here because you don’t want to repeat your family’s trauma history. Maybe you have done some inner healing work on yourself, but still, feel like you need more guidance. Maybe you lived your whole life with the mindset of “It is what it is” and yet you can’t shake the tension in your chest and notice the conflict within yourself.
Do any of the following resonate with you?
You feel guilty for being unhappy
You have your stuff together (decent job, decent relationship, decent living situation), but you still feel low, anxious, and irritated. Your inner critic replays the phrase “you should be grateful! Just suck it up”
You feel scared to express emotions
You do have emotions and you feel deeply, but you have been trained to dismiss and shut them out. No one really taught you how to express them and if you do—you‘ve gotten shamed and rejected.
You feel burnt out personally and professionally
You are a caring person, and you love your friends and your job. But people start taking advantage, and it feels crippling to say no or to stop. You go back and forth from being a people-pleaser to wanting to shut everyone out.
I see you.
Imagine waking up your hidden feelings, authentic desires, and self-love.
You start to trust your emotional instincts and feel safe to share and allow them to be.
You make healthy boundaries at work and with your loved ones so that you can spend that time for yourself.
You allow the hurt to be healed and find balance in your life
