About My Clients

Feeling emotionally adrift or a lack of purpose and meaning in your life? You might not have a sense of who you are or what you want. Within the guidance of this safe space, you will learn to recognize core wounds and unmet needs that have preserved toxic shame. Using somatic and embodiment practices, you will learn to heal wounds, anchor into your truth, and live free to be wonderfully human and wild.

My Background and Approach

With over 10 years of experience, I offer a warm, relatable, direct and often humorous approach. I draw from an eclectic array of therapeutic modalities and my approach will vary depending on your specific needs. I focus on treating root causes, not just symptoms. Together, we will explore your life and relationships guided by attachment and psychodynamic theories as well as embodiment and somatic coaching to support nervous system regulation.
