My Approach to Helping

Are you ready to stop surviving your life and begin to thrive through your life? The thing about depression, anxiety, and panic is that they are more than psychological states – they’re also physical and energetic. You're unable to "turn off". You carry the weight of past experiences in the form of ruminating thoughts and intrusive memories. Perhaps you’ve tried (and paid for) many different avenues of healing and continue to feel tense and activated. Your sense of self-worth is dependent on what you do and not who you are. You struggle with feeling stuck in patterns that aren't serving you, but are unsure of how to make a change.

I privilege your voice and preferences while helping you to make the changes you desire. I take a holistic approach to healing and will utilize my expertise as a clinical therapist, yoga and meditation teacher, and former neuropsychology researcher to help you develop more self-compassion, create the healthy relationships you want, and enjoy life once more.

You CAN feel lighter, experience more inner peace and reclaim your ability to relax. I have a deep passion for helping people feel empowered - to accept who they have been, understand who they are & imagine, and work towards, who they might be. I want to help to support you on your journey back to wholeness and the beauty of life that awaits you.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Grief counseling: Grieving the loss of a loved may be one of the most difficult emotions we humans experience. Yet, it is normal, natural, and absolutely healthy. When someone special to us dies, the relationship does not die. I believe that grieving includes saying goodbye and then a chance to say hello again. I am guided by the practice of Narrative Therapy creator Michael White, as well as author and therapist Lorraine Hedtke's teachings. I help individuals process the raw and painful emotions of the loss, as well as assist them in embracing the opportunity to reclaim their relationship with the lost loved one and incorporate the love they have for the deceased into daily living.
