About My Clients

I believe that the body and mind inform eachother and emotions serve as invitations to dialogue with deeper parts of yourself. I’ll offer gentle (but firm) nudges to explore whatever it is you’re going through, all at your pace, with the respect and sensitivity you deserve. I utilize a Somatic Parts Work, Somatic IFS, & ACT approach tailored to your needs.

My Background and Approach

I specialize in working with creative highly sensitive people who deal with depression and anxiety. Together we will process your experiences, change unhelpful narratives, and develop harmony and balance within yourself. I work as witness in helping you develop a more nuanced inner dialogue to move from a place of confusion and disconnection towards self compassion and healing. I am LGBTQIA+ affirming, Sex Positive, Spiritually, Wiccan, Witch and Pagan affirming, and work from a trauma-informed, anti-oppressive, multiculturally sensitive, & intersectional approach towards embodied healing and life empowerment.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I'm a first-gen Greek-American child of immigrants, and an HSP Bisexual Woman. My lived experience of disordered eating, depression and anxiety has taught me how to cultivate radical self acceptance which I share with my clients. I provide the compassionate space for you as you unfold your story. My goal is for you to be kind to yourself in an unkind world.
