About My Clients
If you don't want to feel alone anymore and are ready to do the work of sorting through, making sense of, and transforming your pain and darkness into a more embodied, joyful life, I would love to support you. Healing and alchemy happens when there is a safe person to guide, witness, support, and celebrate the highs and lows of your healing journey. We all carry trauma in our body in different ways; no one is immune to pain and suffering. Healing is possible and you deserve that.
My Background and Approach
I have a Master of Science degree in Mental Health Counseling, a certificate in Chemical Dependency Counseling, and seven years experience working as a therapist. I use psychodynamic theories to help you identify and meet unmet childhood needs to transform destructive mental, emotional and behavioral patterns that keep you stuck. My goal is to help you learn how to love yourself on a deeper, more compassionate and powerful level. I use gentle somatic techniques to help people re-inhabit their body in new ways that allows for greater capacity for receiving love, joy, connection, and belonging. I incorporate energetic grounding techniques and dreamwork to support your process. I also specialize in nature therapy as an adjunct to traditional therapy and offer plant walks and classes to learn about the emotional and spiritual healing properties of native, medicinal plants.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe our therapeutic relationship is a sacred, powerful catalyst for change. You are your greatest healer. I am here to help you heal yourself. I believe in the healing power and magic of the earth. Being in nature is deeply healing and I act as a guide to help you connect with nature for healing and growth.
