About My Clients

I work with adults whose childhoods may have involved everything they needed physically, but whose emotional needs were unsatisfied. Perhaps you were a highly sensitive person growing up in a family ill-equipped to tend to your sensitivities or perhaps your family believed that emotions were bad and therefore you believed you were bad for having them. You may now find yourself feeling guilty, unworthy, inadequate, or flawed. These are not reflective of you as a person, but the wounds you carry.

My Background and Approach

I’m a highly sensitive person myself, and approach therapy from a relational and client-centered framework. I incorporate an attachment-based perspective to help you understand how your experiences in early life connect to your life now, and rely on gentle trauma reprocessing to create healing for those old wounds. I believe that therapy is a collaborative process, which means that I am an active participant in our sessions, while also supporting you to find your voice. I value your emotions and will help you learn to find value in them as well.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I’m a sensitive soul and my favorite part of my work is building connections with others. I operate from a collaborative perspective knowing that my training and clinical experiences have value, but your inner wisdom and intuition are equally important. As such, I welcome your feedback and respect your authority over the direction of our discussions. This means that I will be an active participant, and may at times guide our sessions, but you have the ability to decide how much to share, when you want to share, and when you’d like to pause or slow down. I strive to create an environment in which you feel valued and accepted so you can feel free to dive into the work that has brought you here in the first place.
