Accepting Clients

It's challenging to be highly sensitive in such a chaotic world, but there’s hope with the right guidance and support.

About My Clients

At Resilience Lab my knowledge of trauma-informed care and behavioral health, coupled with my creative background in yoga and art therapy, allows me to provide support expert to highly sensitive people. Together, we create a safe space that encourages the exploration of feelings and the formation of a brand-new story founded on personal strength, hope, and resilience.

My Background and Approach

I spend considerable time getting to know my clients and adapting my approach to validate their individuality. Through a combination of intuitive and research-based techniques, I’ll empower you to move beyond the challenges and barriers that have been holding you back from living your best life. Everyone is in this together, and no one should have to face life’s challenges alone. You have already taken the first and most important step towards finding support and setting yourself up for a more authentic and fulfilling future, by being vulnerable. Vulnerability is a brave act, and I am grateful you are here.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I am a neurodiverse therapist/social worker, artist, mother, empath, nature lover, and part-time animal rehabilitator on the LGBTQIA+ spectrum. I identify as a pansexual and pantheistic cisgender woman. As a therapist, I use an eclectic approach that fully honors and recognizes the powerfully interwoven connection between mind, body, spirit, and heart. Towards that end, I am currently in the process of completing a 200-hour yoga teacher training program, with the intention of incorporating yoga, meditation, and healing touch into my future practice. I have always felt very passionate and drawn toward working in the field of disabilities. To honor this passion, I volunteer regularly at an Adult Resource Center, teaching art classes to adults with various intellectual and developmental disabilities. In addition to my passion for developing bonds between people, I am a fierce animal lover/cat lady, and I volunteer at a local animal shelter regularly.
