My Ideal Client

I work with individual adults of all ages, races, and genders. I have experience working with Trauma, depression, anxiety, chronic pain, disability, relationship issues, boundaries, attachment, identity development, eating disorders, immigration issues, and much more. I enjoy working with LBGTQIA+ folks, as well as men and women who are working to liberate themselves from patriarchal roles and relationship patterns. I am committed to ongoing anti-racism and anti-oppression work.

My Approach to Helping

My approach is authentic and assertive, while maintaining empathy and compassion for wherever you may be on your own path. I believe every person already has everything they need within themselves; my role is to provide a supportive environment and therapeutic relationship in which you can feel safe enough to explore, experiment, and expand. I will work with you in understanding your patterns and freeing yourself from the behaviors, thoughts, and beliefs that are no longer serving you, while considering the various systems that have impacted you and various aspects of culture and identity that intersect and interact with your environment. I use an integrated multicultural, anti-oppression, feminist, trauma-informed, and person-centered approach that draws from Existential Humanism, Jungian theory, Family Systems theory, Attachment theory, Internal Family Systems, and mindfulness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe every person has a birthright to wholeness and health; in working with you, I hope to build an egalitarian, empowering alliance that centers your personally defined goals, while facilitating the unfolding of your own inherent wisdom and the reclaiming of your true self. My areas of interest include healing through breath and movement, meditation, inner child work, herbalism, plant and nature therapy, tarot and astrology, and spirituality, including working with the Chakra system.
