I work best with individuals who are seeking a nurturing space in which to explore themes of overwhelm, stress, perfectionism, identity, emotional eating, relational struggles, creative blocks, and/or navigating a late-life ADHD diagnosis. We're likely a good fit if you're a curious, creative, open-hearted individual who takes your internal life and emotional self earnestly or wants to learn how to do so. Therapy is often more about surrendering, unlearning, and experiencing rather than "trying to change" or eradicating unpleasant feelings. Self-inquiry, self-exploration, and meaning-making lend themselves to this process.
I identify as a white, upper-middle class, fat, able-bodied, cisgender woman of European heritage. My pronouns are she/her, though I believe that neither sex assigned at birth nor gender identity should define, repress, or exclude any human.
The process of self-discovery is a beautiful one that allows your whole self to come into focus. Inviting in and healing the unconscious material behind your struggle can lead to long-lasting change. Hidden within that unconscious material may be the realization that what informs you from within was created from without. The systems in which we exist and learn--families, schools, communities, cultures-- can inform our values, self-worth, and feelings of safety out in the world. This is imperative to name and process in therapy so that you're not holding blame, shame, and stuckness for that which was never yours in the first place.
