About

As a therapist, I understand the need for warmth and acceptance. This is the foundation of a therapeutic relationship where people can show up with aspects of themselves that are problematic and unhelpful without judgement. I can relate to very human uncomfortable and undesirable behaviors, feelings and beliefs about ourselves. Through consistent support, compassion and curiosity, positive change becomes possible.
My training in Gestalt therapy, informed by trauma sensitivity and attachment theory guides me to prioritize safety and human experiences in relationship. With a strong practice underpinned by neuroscience and somatic trauma therapy approaches, I work towards creating greater tolerance toward uncomfortable sensations that arise out of difficult experiences.
I believe that people inherently know what is, and is not a good fit. Please get in touch to see if working together therapeutically might feel like a good fit for you.
