My Approach to Helping

Clients tell me I’m unconventional, hippy-dippy, and I think they’re probably right. I like to fuse my psychology, social work, and life coaching background with my experience of being a human and artist, because I’m human first and therapist second. I approach therapy like art, with existential thinking, emotional connection, and a space to heal with creativity and curiosity. I've learned the interventions and the psychoanalytical theories, but at the end of the day, I enjoy creating art with you based on the thoughts, feelings, and experiences you bring into sessions. Our therapeutic relationship is a canvas to embrace the mess of life, rarely knowing what it is that we're creating, but taking a moment in time together to acknowledge the beauty that can come from the telling of our stories.

Groups I Work With

    Highly Sensitive Persons: As a fellow HSP, I grew up not understanding that my brain and how I see the world was different than those around me. It's easy to become overstimulated and to feel too muchnot enough all at the same time. I enjoy helping HSP adapt to who they are, because it is a true gift to interact with the world on such an emotional level.

    Childhood Trauma Survivors: I never meant to specialize in PTSD, specially chronic, complex cases. However, after being diagnosed with Complex-PTSD, all I can say is that I get it, I see you, and I'd love to help. I use a mixture of psychodynamic theory, relational therapy, and inner child healing to help you integrate your mind, body, and soul into the beautiful spirit that exists within you.

    Spiritually Seeking: Spirituality is the breath of life that helps us navigate the world, who we are, and who we want to be. Unfortunately, the messiness of life can get in the way of us reaching such enlightenment. I work with people who are struggling with their spiritual beliefs, are wanting to explore their belief systems, or who have been abused by religion. Although I identify as a spiritual person, I enjoy working with people of all faiths and denominations.
