About My Clients

I enjoy working with and understanding folx from their perspective and encouraging them to grow and explore who they are and wish to become. I provide a safe, unassuming space in which you can find felt safety. I appreciate the eclectic person you are and would like to help you find your own cracks, so that you can let your own light in.

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. I appreciate the diverse background folx come from and acknowledge those are but a piece of who we are today and the resulting stress, anxiety and depression are but a symptom of that trauma, one 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 completed TAC (Training on Adoption Competency through CASE Foundation), and enjoy working through emotions, trauma and somatic experiencing.

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.
