About My Clients

In my experience people come to therapy looking for something they can’t get elsewhere.

My Background and Approach

My clients say I genuinely care and I know how to help someone resolve life's obstacles. Trained as both a psychotherapist and a nurse I offer a unique mind-body and somatic perspective. Our work together will look at the parts of yourself making up the whole but also quarry deep to the heart of the matter, understanding what blocks us from peace of mind, self-love, and the life we desire. I specialize with people who have difficulty letting themselves be seen by others. They are often viewed as successful, creative, and smart but on the inside feel discontent or unworthy. If this sounds familiar I can help. Aside from traditional talk therapy I am trained in using Voice Dialogue, NeuroAffective Relational Model (NARM), Trauma Focused Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, dream work, Gestalt Therapy, Mindfulness Self-Compassion, and Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

For as long as I can remember I have been fascinated with the human story. Curious why we suffer emotionally or physically. Knowing what happened to us in our past is important and necessary but I don't believe it resulted in something wrong or broken within us. I believe radical acceptance and self-awareness led to a meaningful life and sometimes the smallest steps in the right direction end up being the biggest step of your life. Give me a text and let's get started.
