My Approach to Helping
Welcome! I subscribe to the power of the mind-body connection and holistic practices to achieve healing. Have you ever felt stress in your shoulders or anxiety in your hands? That’s the mind-body connection! I encourage you to tap into your body and offer somatic and behavioral tools to complement our talk therapy work.
Therapy is collaborative. Together, we’ll create a welcoming space for partnership and growth. You’ll guide your own care, and I’ll provide support as you work toward your goals. I practice from a person-centered, trauma-informed, and anti-oppressive mindset that honors your dynamic personal history. My approach is warm and empowering. Because of my background as a fine artist and yoga teacher, I’m able to bring creativity, movement, vulnerability, and even humor into sessions.
I work closely with folks experiencing life transitions, emerging adulthood, changing relationships, and low self-esteem. I’ve also worked with survivors of gender-based violence, complex trauma, depression, anxiety, grief, and PTSD. We’ll dig into your past experiences to get to the root of your struggles and plant new seeds that lead to personal growth. As a result, you’ll gain a healthier connection with yourself and more joy in your life.
