About My Clients
I specialize in survivors of narcissistic abuse, especially with adult children of narcissist parents and intimate partners of narcissists. I have a love for working with fat-identifying clients who are engaging in the journey toward body acceptance and neutrality as well as queer-identifying clients. I have a special interest in working with transition aged young adults, 18-27 but also enjoy working above this range as well. I do not take insurance and all sessions will be out of pocket only.
My Background and Approach
I have worked with survivors of trauma for almost ten years. As a child survivor of narcissistic and abusive parents myself, I have fallen in love with the work of assisting survivors on their own path to safety, healing, and even joy! I have ample experience working with those impacted by abuse in many different forms. I am EMDR trained and certified and enjoy working on trauma recovery. I love to incorporate different mediums into my practice, including but not limited to art, plants, and body movement. I operate from a radical acceptance model around body neutrality and self-esteem.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
It is my belief as a therapist that it is not your job to cater to me, but my job to make therapy right for YOU. I believe a collaborative therapeutic process is crucial in creating a lasting and trusting relationship between a therapist and client. You deserve to move through life, not just survive it.
