About My Clients
I work with a variety of clients with varying issues, age ranges, and cultural backgrounds. I particularly focus on adults and couples. Utilizing a holistic lens, my clients and I work collaboratively to integrate the mind, body, and spirit. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, depression, past traumas, physical pain or illness, or seeking personal exploration and growth, we will join in our relationship to explore what lies underneath your symptoms.
My Background and Approach
I take a person-centered, integrative, humanistic approach in which I gauge what works best for the client at any given time. My passion is working with individuals who have experienced adverse events and/or trauma. As a yoga teacher, I love to incorporate mindfulness and body awareness into our sessions. I also utilize EMDR to process trauma. I believe that the heart of therapy is simultaneously processing through the root of your symptoms as well as building coping skills to manage your symptoms in daily life. Our therapeutic relationship comes at the upmost importance in our work together, and I will ensure that we build healthy, transparent communication with one another. You hold the key to healing yourself, my intention is to guide you toward finding those answers. I will create a safe, supportive space for you to be able to freely process whatever brings you into the room.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that everyone is the expert in their own life. We are all made up of a million experiences that shape who we are today. Many times, we take for granted the deep connection between our mind, our bodies, and our spirit. I believe these three aspects of the self are highly intertwined, and true healing comes from working to integrate all aspects of ourselves. Along with my training as a mental health therapist, I also hold an advanced training credential as a yoga teacher (RYT-500) and am a level-one reiki practitioner, which focuses on the energetic body. I understand the significance of our physical bodies manifesting unprocessed traumas and stressors, as well as the impact our physical wellness has on our mind and emotions. I believe in processing the events that compounded and resulted in who we are today, we can find true healing in the mind, body, and soul.
