My Approach to Helping

My practice focuses on providing therapy for women in all stages of life. I can offer you support with anxiety, overwhelm, life transitions, motherhood, parenting, or navigating relationships with yourself and others. My intention is to provide compassionate therapy, that can allow you to feel safe enough to explore your internal and external world that can be useful not only in session, but in your everyday life.

Being witnessed, understood and seen with kindness and compassion can be very healing and powerful. In today's world, it may be difficult to find a safe space that is just yours, a place for you to freely speak about your needs, your wants, your difficulties and hopes and your experience.

More Info About My Practice

I am a Somatic Psychotherapist and I have additional training in Internal Family Systems and an understanding of trauma. I incorporate mindfulness into our work.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?

Scheduling an introductory phone call allows you the opportunity to ask questions, discuss what your needs are and get a sense of my working style and what therapy might look like. It gives you the space to decide what the best fit for you is and your needs and if I am a good match for the work you would like to do. It also creates some space for you to discuss your concerns or hopes for therapy without any pressure to commit to working together. My sincere goal is to get you the kind of support that feels right for you.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Therapy has been found to be most beneficial and productive when incorporated into a client's lifestyle. Generally, sessions are scheduled once a week, especially in the beginning. Having sessions weekly allows you the opportunity to establish the necessary therapeutic relationship, provides consistency and allows you to have dedicated weekly support.

The duration of therapy depends on your particular needs and goals. As we work together, we will discuss your goals and treatment needs.
