About Me:

  • My clients describe me as:

    human. I'm compassionate, knowledgeable and authentic; I'm also not afraid to laugh in a session. I offer a shame free space where people feel heard.

  • Something to know about my approach is:

    that it tends to be interactive. My goal is to support you in figuring out what's right for you while incorporating a somatic approach. I offer opportunities to verbally explore, connect to your feelings, and to explore at a pace that feels right.

  • Together, we will:

    Work to untangle the feelings and narratives that have you feeling uncertain, stuck, ashamed or overwhelmed. We will collaborate to find the path that works best for you, while navigating the complexities that come with systems, families or grief.

  • I specialize in working with people who:

    have challenging family relationships, including related trauma; codependency; and people who have internalized messages of doubt or not being "good enough." Additionally, I specialize in grief.

  • I became a therapist because:

    I learned how being understood and heard can change lives. Therapy aligns with my natural tendencies toward empathy and compassion.

  • More about me and my practice:

    I strive to help people feel understood, and to help them gain the skills to navigate their lives and their emotions with more confidence. I'm passionate about helping people live a life that feel authentic to them.
