About My Clients

Ever find yourself wondering how your past relationships and family dynamics might be shaping your life today? Maybe you've noticed certain patterns repeating themselves, and you're ready to dive in and make some changes. Are you curious about what it would feel like to bring more presence, awareness and authenticity into your everyday experiences? To really live life fully, with intention?If any of this resonates with you, then you're in the right place.

My Background and Approach

I focus on understanding the impact of early relational trauma on the nervous system and how it affects one's ability to form and maintain healthy connections. Through a combination of talk therapy, somatic techniques, and mindfulness practices, I help clients navigate their past experiences and develop new ways of relating to themselves and others. I create a non-judgmental space for clients to explore their emotions, thoughts, and behaviors. I believe in the power of the therapeutic relationship and work collaboratively with clients to identify and address the underlying causes of their struggles. With a warm and empathetic approach, I support clients in building resilience, self-awareness, and self-compassion.
