My Approach to Helping

Do you have a hard time valuing yourself? Do you wish you could show yourself the same love you show others? I help those suffering from low self-worth, high levels of self-criticism, and subsequent anxiety and depression. I offer a space of non-judgement and freedom to explore all parts of you that are wishing to be heard.

My approach is integrative and relational, incorporating a variety of practices, tailored to your therapeutic needs and goals. As an EMDR trained, and trauma informed therapist I explore behaviors, beliefs and emotions through the lens of trauma. I help clients understand their true self, and step into their innate ability to trust themselves and heal.

My aim is to help you experience immediate relief, by empowering you with tools and resources. I also desire long-lasting change for you, and we facilitate this through understanding and insight, emotional processing & integration, and deep healing at the root. If this sounds like what you've been looking for, please reach out to see if we would be a fit.

More Info About My Practice

I desire for therapy to feel sustainable for you. For that reason, I practice from a trauma informed lens. You are the expert on you, so you will control the pace of therapy. We will develop empowerment and safety for you, by utilizing emotional regulation and grounding tools, before exploring your painful life experiences. A trauma informed therapist understands that within the context of your story, all of you makes sense.
