About My Clients

Want to better manage your anxiety and mood, learn ways to improve your self-esteem, feel lighter (not be weighed down by past experiences), improve relationships, get to a place where you’re better able to enjoy life? I have extensive experience with those who struggle with anxiety, who have had childhood adverse experiences or trauma, and particularly those who struggle with inability to slow down or relax.

My Background and Approach

In our sessions, you will learn to: Better recognize patterns, take steps toward integrating healthier skills, build healthier relationships with yourself and others, be able to better manage your emotional responses to the challenges you face; identify and leverage your own strengths; feel more grounded and reconnect with your inner power and wisdom. I have much experience with clients from various backgrounds inclusive of diverse ethnicity, gender, immigration and refugee status, ability levels, religious and spiritual beliefs, LGB-identified, socioeconomic status. I believe in contextualizing our struggles within the cultural and historical systems, and work with clients to strengthen their resilience and power. As someone who lived through and have learned so much from my own burnouts and health challenges that led me to explore and advance my training in mind, body, and spiritual practices, I know that these practices and techniques work for me and many others!

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Life could present with variety of marginalization and challenging experiences that could shape how we see ourselves and our world, sometimes weighing us down and debilitating us. I don’t believe in simply relieving the symptoms of anxiety or trauma. Often these have deeper roots, and we will unpack those heavy “baggage” that you may inadvertently be carrying. We'll work to incorporate healthier, heart and soul-nourishing practices. It’s not that you won’t have difficulties in your life as we work to heal, but that you’ll learn and know that you’ll figure it out and be able to get through whatever challenges you face, to be less emotionally reactive, and you’ll still be able to have genuine smiles and appreciate the twists and turns of your life. I look forward to empowering your capacity to come into your true self, to come into your power as you heal, balance, and learn to attune to your own mental and heart wisdom.
