About My Clients
I specialize in working with those who've experienced complex trauma. Even when we've had well-intentioned parents, we can come away with patterns of behavior that though were once adaptive, now only keep us stuck. These patterns typically manifest as anxiety, depression, self-hatred, addictions, obsessions, compulsions, codependency and other problematic experiences. I work experientially in the moment to get to the root of what is getting in the way of desired experiences on an identity level.
My Background and Approach
I support and facilitate the natural wisdom of your mind, body, emotions, and highest self as a whole to unlock what feels stuck. Together, we will work to notice what arises in the moment and to allow deeper awareness to emerge through attuning to emotions and sensations with mindfulness. I believe that honing this practice of "tuning in" not only alleviates what is causing our pain, but also brings to life our dormant potentials. We access our unique and authentic selves, gain clarity on former illusions/misbeliefs, repair and restore what is broken in ourselves and with those we love, and develop our capacity to increasingly live and connect with an open heart.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I have always possessed a natural curiosity for the human psyche and the inner-workings of relationships. I believe that as humans, each of us are wired for fulfilling relationships, yet difficult life circumstances can create a rupture in this connection with others as well as ourselves. I view my role as a therapist as a fellow human engaging with you in a healing relationship where we can work towards your goals and areas of concern. My hope is that our work together assists you on your own journey towards a deep and fulfilling sense of connection, purpose, and meaning as we collaboratively transcend barriers to your desired experiences.
