About My Clients

Struggling with anxiety that feels unmanageable? Whether it's impacting your relationships, work, or overall well-being, I specialize in empowering you to navigate life with confidence and discover self-acceptance. I also support those navigating the complexities of religious trauma or deconstructing beliefs. If you're on a journey to discover your authentic self, rewrite values, or heal from past harms, let's embark on this transformative process together and reclaim peace and authenticity.

My Background and Approach

Drawing from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, I provide personalized strategies to ease anxiety and reconnect with yourself. I tailor each session, offering grounding techniques, skill building, and a safe space to explore your unique experience. Whether we're reframing beliefs, discovering your values, or navigating triggers from religious trauma, I understand – I've been there too. As a Certified Clinical Trauma Professional (CCTP) and an anxiety specialist, I bring a unique understanding to your journey. Together, we'll navigate the complexities, rediscover your authentic self, and move toward meaning and balance.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Living an authentic life is crucial for maintaining good mental health. Drawing from my own personal experience of growing up in and leaving a fundamentalist religion, I know firsthand how much space it can occupy in one's mind and how much anxiety it can generate. If you're looking to explore your own authenticity, I would be happy to work with you and guide you on this journey. Schedule a consultation today to see if we're a good fit!
