About My Clients

Do you want to dive deep into understanding how your lived experiences impact your mental, emotional, relational, and physical well-being? Do you want to explore the patterns that unconsciously guide your interactions with family members, partners, workplace colleagues, and even yourself? Together we will explore your relationship and attachment patterns, developing tools for self-advocacy, empowerment, and self-acceptance.

My Background and Approach

I utilize a mind-body, trauma-informed approach and specialize in individuals who experience trauma, relationship challenges, family conflict, and chronic illness. I believe in utilizing a holistic approach to understanding how life experiences impact not only the mind, but also one's emotional, physical, and relational well-being. It is possible to feel more connected, fulfilled, and in alignment with yourself. Together, we will get to the root of the challenges you are facing while shedding light on old patterns that are holding you back. For those who face chronic illness, we move towards healing by exploring its holistic impact on your life and body-positive relationship with yourself. I have over 6 years of experience working in hospital, social service, governmental and educational settings. I have completed the Gottman Institute's Couples Therapy training levels 1 & 2. I am studying at the Ackerman Institute for the Family in their Dual Program.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that anyone has the ability to heal with the right support systems. You are not alone in your experiences. I utilize the person-in-environment perspective and believe that larger social, cultural, political, and structural factors impact our lived experiences. Together we will explore the challenges you are facing and how they have impacted you holistically, from a mental, emotional, and physical perspective, utilizing a trauma-informed lens. If you think we may be a good fit, feel free to schedule a free 15-minute phone consultation. I look forward to hearing from you -
