There are moments in life when we feel stuck and navigating life feels difficult. Therapy is a great tool to gain greater clarity & deep emotional healing. Together, we can uncover blocks that may be preventing you from living a life of authenticity, deep emotional healing & personal growth. I believe in a holistic approach and tuning inward with awareness and compassion.
My primary interests are working with individuals with anxiety, depression, chronic stress, trauma based symptoms & diagnosis, career and life transitions, balancing self care, parenting, healthy relationships and perinatal mental health. I am also interested in working with couples who have challenges related to communication, want a deeper connection or break free from patterns no longer serving them.
How I Work
There is no one path to healing and healing looks different for everyone. I work in collaboration with my clients, creating a safe space, towards their desired goals. My mental health training expands beyond the mind, incorporating breathwork, movement or yoga. Merging psychotherapy and yoga exposed me to somatic work, mindfulness techniques and trauma informed care.
I utilize interventions such as controlled breathing, visualizations, meditation, self regulation and positive thinking. I approach therapy through a strengths based perspective and meet each client where they are.
