My Approach to Helping
I went into the mental health field because I believe in the strength of the human soul. I have witnessed strength, resiliency, and hope in my clients. I place emphasis on building a supportive, safe environment in which one can tell his/her/their story. In building this safe relationship, one can learn to feel and express his/her/their feelings. Once regaining a sense of security, one can learn to trust themselves and begin to make changes in his/her/their lives. My goal is to empower my clients so that they can believe in themselves and their ability to make positive changes in their lives.
I have extensive experience working with trauma survivors and incorporate a somatic lens with my clients as they rebuild a sense of safety in their body and life, allowing them to heal through various traumas and abuse that they have experienced. As a member of the LGBTQ+ community myself, I also have a passion and dedication to providing safe, affirmative environments for members of this community.
I would be honored to support you on your healing journey.
