Practicing Since: 2016
I see people as a whole being- body, mind, spirit, as well as cultural being. My training in yoga and mindfulness offer tools to address your broader self.
The foundation of my professional development and study is focused on the client-therapist relationship as the crucible of change. I take seriously the responsibility to be present and authentic in order to create a space where you can feel safe and seen. I am committed to my own personal growth and development. I have studied Interpersonal Neurobiology with Bonnie Badenoch, PhD, since 2016.
Often the focus of therapy is your social roles and relationships. I believe that this is the arena of our life where many of our greatest strengths as well as struggles are born. I have extensively studied and practiced with a focus on trauma, attachment, and relationships.

Improving communication, relationships, self-esteem, self-awareness, embodiment, and self-compassion are all facets of personal growth that can ripple out into your life in amazing ways. My counseling style always focuses on deepening your trust in your own core knowing, so that you may develop in the direction of your own authenticity.
I have experience working with people who have religious or spiritual trauma, as well as people who, despite years of spiritual practice, are not finding the relief they need. I honor all belief systems and can work with you to explore spiritual identity and increase a sense of meaning that is authentic to your unique experience.
I offer many tools and strategies for multiple types of anxiety. I have training in Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction, as well as mindfulness and yoga methods that have been proven to be extremely effective in managing anxiety.
I have training in CBT, and can also incorporate mindfulness to address depression symptoms. I also work to explore the roots and causes of depression to understand your symptoms holistically.
