About My Clients

I enjoy working with and understanding folx from their perspective. I provide a safe, unassuming space in which you can find felt safety. I enjoy working with singles, couples, non-monogamous censensual relationships and families. Folx I work with address developmental trauma, including within the family of origin, current relational challenges, anxiety, depression, self-worth, inner critic and growing their mind and life in a direciton that feeds the soul.

My Background and Approach

Well done on taking the first step in a journey toward wellness. The most important aspect of therapy is finding a person who makes you feel safe and heard. Developmental trauma shapes how we see the world, sometimes unsafe and challenging to navigate. Our attachments are the foundations in which we trust or find conflict. Developmental trauma may manifest in the body as anxiety, stress, distress, relationship difficulties, depression and more. There is healing to be found here, to be understood and nourished. I have training and experience in working in the realms of trauma, attachment disruptions, complicated grief and loss, sexuality, and LGBTQ+ persons through identity explorations, coming out and transitions. I have 170+ hours in attachment training; I have completed TAC (Training on Adoption Competency through CASE Foundation). I enjoy working through emotions, trauma and somatic experiencing. I enjoy somatic work; learning to trust the body and the stories it tells.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that the experiences of our childhood and upbringing, whether safe, frightening, confusing, joyful or full or sorrow, shape how we approach the world. As we grow our experiences may match these initial experiences and beliefs or may challenge them, this in itself can be confusing and affect the way we work, love and live. I believe we have the capacity to shape those experiences and discover a unique path that leads toward happiness and joy. I believe we all deserve a safe space to explore these experiences and thoughts so that we begin to heal and have fulfilling relationships and lives. We learn to discover the cracks in our protective stance to let our own light in. We learn to nurture our own power.
