Welcome. I'm glad you're here. :)

Experiencing pain is part of being human, and I believe that it's less about forcing yourself to feel differently, and more about being with exactly how you feel in a compassionate way. Welcoming the darkness and the light, the mess and the beauty, the joy and the sadness, and all that's in between.

I can't take away what you're struggling with, but I'll do my best to offer you a sense of grounded-ness amongst the storm.

 

I'm here to support you through all of life's ups and downs. I aim to be a mirror for you, reflecting back to you what's already within: your own power, you own compassion, and your own wisdom.

My Therapeutic Approach

Bright Living Room

I view therapy as a relationship, and an equal partnership. I'm here to be your guide, teacher, supporter, and teammate. I see you as a human being, not a diagnosis or a problem that needs to be fixed. I will accept and welcome all parts of you, while encouraging you to do the same for yourself. 

My therapeutic approach is holistic and eclectic, meaning I pull from different approaches depending on your needs. You're in the driver's seat of your journey, and I trust that you know where to take us. I will meet you where you're at and allow you to set the pace of the sessions. 

 

I often allow my gut and intuition to lead me in session. My energy in session is warm, conversational and genuine. I believe that the relationship between the therapist and client is what fosters healing. You and I will work together to create a relationship based on safety, trust, compassion, and authenticity. ​​​​

I incorporate a variety of approaches in my work with clients including:

  • Person-centered & relationship oriented therapy

  • Self-compassion​​

  • Mindfulness

  • Inner child healing​

  • Somatic/body-based tools

  • Trauma sensitive practices

All therapists utilize different approaches, and each client’s journey is unique. Throughout the therapeutic process I'll offer different tools, perspectives, and techniques. You get to choose what resonates with you and what doesn't! This healing journey is yours. I'll do my best to work together with you, and to encourage you to honor what feels most aligned for you.

My Values as a Therapist

Compassion

As your therapist, I care deeply about you as a human being, and your pain. I offer a warm and comforting space where you can feel safe to share your thoughts and feelings without fear of judgment. I aim to be a soft landing place for you to gain clarity, find calm, and feel grounded. 

Balance

Finding a balance is important for healing. Softness and gentle challenge, yin and yang, heaviness and light, rest and movement... they all have a purpose. I aim to guide you to practice creating space for more balance in your life. I will also honor wherever you are at each time we meet. Some sessions we have together may feel heavy and emotionally intense. Other sessions we may talk about the weather, your pets, tattoos, tv shows, or just laugh together. You get to choose. And we move at a pace that feels comfortable for you.

Acceptance

You feeling safe to be the authentic you in session is one of the most important things to me. I'm here to embrace and accept you for exactly as you are, all versions of you. I honor your unique identity, and welcome you to be your genuine self. My services are LGBTQIA2S+ affirming, and I'm committed to helping clients of all genders, sexual identities, and expressions feel safe and welcome.

Empowerment

I'm not here to tell you what to do. You know yourself better than anyone else, and I'm here to help you connect to that inner knowing. I will support you in discovering the choices that feel best for you, so you can feel empowered to create the life you want for yourself. I work in partnership with my clients. I will respect your autonomy, allowing you to take ownership of your healing journey, make choices that align with your values, and develop a sense of empowerment in your life.
