About My Clients
Perhaps you feel like the harder your are on yourself, this will somewhat make you better, stronger, or you'll make better decisions, but it's not helping. Maybe you are feeling more lost, alone and confused, and your relationships and your work are suffering. I connect well with creatives and perfectionists who are looking for a greater sense of ease and wellbeing. Holistic practices can reduce distress symptoms and I look forward to teaching you tools to help you create a life you enjoy.
My Background and Approach
I have a warm, grounded and supportive approach to therapy. I have a background in education and art, and an interest in holistic complementary practices. I find that an integrative approach with practical tools and in a safe space make a significant impact on how my clients feel and show up in their lives. Learning about the connections between mind-body and our behaviors can be powerful, especially when we bring in the new understandings from research about the brain, the impact of trauma, and insights from neuropsychology. I am passionate about supporting clients to learn ways to feel calmer, clearer, and more grounded in themselves and their environment, and how to communicate and build deeper connections in their relationships. I meet clients where they are and tailor sessions to your needs and interests, bringing in your strengths, creativity, possibly some humor, to create lasting change.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I value compassion and acceptance, embracing differences and open empathic communication. I grew up in a multi-lingual, multi-cultural, multi-religious, blended family, so I am familiar with walking between worlds and for me, I look for common connections points between. I have been interested in the common threads between different systems and paths for most of my life, and I have lived on multiple continents. I believe in affirmative, sensitive, and competent care for all identities. For my particularly for my LGBTQ and BIPOC loved ones and clients, I believe in the importance of education and allyship, and with this comes cultural humility along with education and affirmation.
