Accepting Clients

Hello and welcome! I am a mindfulness based therapist based in Denver, currently accepting new clients and offering virtual therapy.

Licensed Professional Counselor Candidate in Denver, CO

About My Clients

Many folks that come to me are highly sensitive people, neurodivergent, struggling with an invisible illness, or recovering from burnout. Commonly I see folks who tend to feel a bit “on the outside of things,” isolated, separate, or lacking in connection. Often much of the therapeutic work I engage with is guiding people to connect more deeply to themselves and others. Themes I work with and see are; people pleasing, indecision, relationship anxiety, boundary setting, and building self trust.

My Background and Approach

My work focuses on your identity, concept of self, and considers how the systems we live in impact your well-being. I am trauma informed, attachment focused, and relational. I use a blend of mindfulness and somatic processing to help you ground, regulate, and see yourself clearly. Depending on your preference a session can include; body scans, meditation, breathwork, and visualization techniques to help access and uncover stuck emotions. My approach is to hold your stories from a compassionate and non-judgemental place, and help guide you to do the same.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe our social/economic systems deeply impact people; their bodies, minds, and emotional wellbeing. As a member of the LGBTQ community and neurodivergent human I offer an inclusive and affirming space to explore your experience of the world. While I believe the institutions we exist in are not easily accessible or navigated by everyone, we are still capable of creating a more easeful and aligned life. I believe every individual can uncover meaning, value, and purpose in their lives even when the world feels unrelenting and harsh. That the deepest and most important relationship you will have is the one you form with yourself. In practice I lean towards; existential, philosophical, and social justice therapeutic work. Together we can untangle old narratives, discover new perspectives, and develop methods of coping that work for you. I look forward to our potential journey together, please feel free to reach out anytime.
