About My Clients

It can be so lonely when we feel broken. Sometimes we don't feel like we can even count on ourselves, or that we're only worthy of love when we're suppressing our needs and taking care of others. Healing from family-of-origin wounds, grief, relational trauma, and codependency does not have to happen in a straight line, or all at once. It's a winding journey toward reclamation, integration, and individuation, and you don't have to chart your path alone. Let me walk with you for awhile.

My Background and Approach

As a therapist, I hold radical compassion for you when you're struggling to hold it yourself, because that is where the deepest healing starts. I offer my own insights but help you uncover your innate wisdom and strength in whatever shape that might take. I welcome your shadows as readily as I welcome the lighter parts of you. I keep a sharp eye on the tree-line for the glimmers that are waiting to catch you, and hold them until you're ready to receive them. I've found that the parts of ourselves that are the (magic, beautiful, miraculous) portals to our deepest healing are often the parts that... torment us the most. The ones we like the least. The ones we have spent our lives running from and trying to disown. Feel free to pause here to shake your fist at the sky at the irony of that. I feel it! I really do. We'll explore that process together with an eye to your unique circumstances and history, and begin to cultivate greater safety in the body.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

No matter who you are, I believe that you are worthy of dignity, respect, and care. I am open to all spiritual and religious belief systems and respectful of how much or how little you want to include these beliefs/traditions in your therapy work. I believe strongly in every person's right and ability to define their unique values, and I emphasize building inner trust, integrity, and discernment in the process of living your values in the world. I seek to understand others in their full complexity, without preconceived ideas of who they are - this includes the contexts and communities you live in, your personal values, your experiences, your history, and the identities you hold, as well as your relationships to those aspects of yourself.
