About My Clients

I enjoy working with creatives, entrepreneurs, and corporate professionals. Some themes I love providing support around: anxiety, family cycle breakers, living a more authentic life, body neutrality/HAES, life transitions, overcoming limiting beliefs, childhood trauma, and self-compassion. Wherever you are on your journey, I would be honored to support you through the process of healing, growth, and self-discovery.

My Approach to Helping

For over a decade, I have committed my life to learn various therapeutic modalities to support clients. As a therapist, I use a relational, integrative and somatic approach. Wherever you are on your journey, you deserve to have a space where you can explore your thoughts and feelings with openness and curiosity. My hope is our work together can be a space where we connect, learn, and grow from one another.

Why I Became a Therapist

I have wanted to be a therapist since I was 10, and after working with an amazing therapist I felt even more called to this work. My pathway to becoming a therapist has not always been easy, but it has been full of powerful moments. I lived the first part of my life behind a people-pleasing mask, trying to be what everyone else wanted me to be. I felt overwhelmed with what others wanted from me, and I wasn't nourishing my own needs and desires. I understand the struggles that come with wanting to change and have faced my own challenges around being queer, living with chronic pain, and navigating big life transitions. I know what it’s like to feel stuck but ready for change. Making the conscious choice to lean into change and live a more authentic and peaceful life has allowed me to connect to my true self. Instead of always trying to be what my family, friends, or society wanted me to be, I learned to honor what makes me feel alive and grounded in life.
