About My Clients

Whether it's depression, anxiety, PTSD, or a lack of connection to yourself and those around you, I'm here to help you break the cycle. My clients are reconnected to their bodies and learn to tune into their internal voice. In turn, we unravel sticky narratives, unhelpful behaviors, and both internal and external judgment to unburden ourselves; lighten the load a little bit. The goal is a healthier relationship to yourself.

My Background and Approach

As a therapy client myself, I know how scary it can be to start new with a therapist. I hope to make the process as painless as possible. I come into the therapy room with the ultimate goal to help you be kinder to yourself. We will go over some exercises and some tools here and there, but at the core of therapy it's the relationship between us that facilitates the healing. To be kind to yourself I will first help you reflect on who you are and where you've been in a safe space. Then we can begin to get to know our parts that make up our stories and ourselves. Parts are a major part of IFS therapy and we're made up of dozens of them. I work with you to understand your relationship to these parts and how they play a role in your relationships. We are always working towards awareness, and through awareness we are given a choice. Will we respond with judgement or give grace? Let's get curious together.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

"Suffering is wasted alone, and meaningful shared." - Someone smarter than me. I believe we heal through connection, never alone. This is a core belief of attachment theory, one I lean on and utilize in session. Humans were not made to grow in isolation. I believe everyone is capable of change, I've witnessed it countless times. One of the most important beliefs I hold is I am not the one who changes my client, I am simply a catalyst for their own change. You, my hypothetical client, are so much stronger than you believe. I believe that strength gets buried by trauma, by grief, and by life. If we take the time to get to know our stories, we open ourselves up to so much more. The sum is greater than the parts, and that's true for everyone and their past. I've been to therapy for nearly a decade now and I don't pretend to hold the answers. I am very familiar with the burdens of being human, but over time I've gotten to know the joys of it too. It's always both.
