I am energized by

supporting my clients in gaining empowerment and taking ownership of their lives. I value supporting clients in increasing the awareness of their thoughts, emotions and what is happening within their bodies - as a way to honor these sensations and metabolize their distress.

In my practice I work with others in a way that is person-centered, holistic, trauma-informed, and integrative. Above all, I hold space for clients as they process what they need. I ask questions to help clients look deeper and connect to the answers within themselves. I feel that it is vital to understand how our past experiences impact our present way of functioning.

I have both personal and professional experience related to depression, anxiety, complex trauma, addiction, and life transitions. I tailor therapeutic modalities to clients’ experiences using psychodynamic therapy, EMDR, interpersonal therapy, inner child work, and mindfulness therapy. I am also interested in providing therapy for integration from FDA approved psychedelic substances.

My belief is that we heal through belonging and connection. I invite you to join me as you are. I would be honored to walk alongside you on this path of healing.
