My Approach to Helping
Times of transition often pose unique challenges. While many of these changes in life are exciting - like starting a new job, graduating college, having a baby, moving, or going through relationship changes - they also can be times of heightened anxiety, stress, or depression. All this newness can yield new opportunities to explore who you are and what is important to you. Seeking the support of a therapist can help you navigate these transitions with a growth-mindset, lend stability to your mental well-being, and help you build resilience.
With over 9 years of experience as a yoga teacher, I bring a body-centered approach to my counseling work. I have training in expressive arts therapy and am passionate about integrating mind+body awareness with creativity to support mental well-being. I believe the creative process to be a powerful tool in healing, often incorporating different expressive arts modalities, including writing, dance, movement, poetry, visual journaling, painting, drawing, and others.
The counseling process with me will contain an experiential element and won't be limited to only talking about your problems. Approaching the concerns you’re dealing with from multiple angles in an integrative, interdisciplinary way can lead to deep and profound healing. I am here to support you and guide you in reconnecting to your body and your own creative process, in whatever season of life you find yourself.
I am also passionate about supporting new mothers through the pregnancy and postpartum period. With training as a birth doula and pre-postnatal yoga teacher, I bring a holistic approach to perinatal mental health.
I often offer expressive arts and yoga-based groups for both teens and adults in addition to individual counseling. Check out the website above for details.
