About My Clients

I come alongside all kinds of different people who are struggling in various ways. In addition, I support people in larger bodies who want a therapist who won't suggest their body is the problem and a focus on weight loss is the answer. I help people to explore their complex, intersecting identities to finally get down to who they really are. I also am honored to work with entrepreneurs and other helping professionals who give so much to the world and are ready to give back to themselves.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in treating trauma in all of its various forms: shock, developmental, attachment, relational, transgenerational, and childhood emotional neglect to name a few. Many things ensue in a person's life when they have endured one or multiple traumas. In context, things we call "disorders" are often rooted in wise coping and are how people have adapted to tolerate intolerable situations. I believe everyone has a right to respectful care and a right to find peace in their own lives. I have training in several trauma focused modalities including EMDR and am a Certified NeuroAffective Relational Model™ (NARM) Therapist which is an advanced model for working complex trauma. I believe it is possible to move beyond tolerating life to live a more peaceful, meaningful life. I also bring a deep passion for social justice to my trauma-informed, evidence-based and heart-centered clinical work. I am willing to learn from any mistakes and go on this journey with you if you will have me.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I have been told I am warm, open, caring and insightful. People also experience me as curious and kind, while also enthusiastic and engaging. I am known to be a champion and a catalyst for powerful change. I originally founded Nourished Energy to help people step out of diet culture and into their bodies…Then I quickly realized the often-common link between unresolved past hurts to current issues and symptoms…From working with people experiencing devastating depressions and overwhelming anxieties…to body disconnection and binge eating…to troubled relationships, I could see the depth of the hurt. And as powerful as talk therapy is, there is more. I began to take trainings that brought the body, heart and spirit into the therapeutic relationship. I welcome all people and am honored to work with the LGBTQIA+ community and people at the higher end of the weight spectrum. I move through the world in a smaller, white, cisgender body and work to dismantle my privilege daily.
