About

Do you wonder if you’re the only one around who experiences the world with the intensity you do? Depending on how stressed you are, it may feel like you’re on alert or like you’re living in a soundproof glass box, cut off from others. You may have a hard time focusing on conversations with co-workers and family. You might have been told you’re "oversensitive" or have "no filter.". You may be feeling frustrated with yourself for not being able to get things together and just move forward, but the pandemic has made everything harder, and it feels like there are always too many moving parts. You want for a space to talk this through.
Together, we can explore fears in a safe space, name and shift painful thought patterns, and soothe hard-to-control thoughts, using DBT, CBT and Narrative approaches. Learn new ways to respond to physical stress signals by understanding your reactions with compassion. Recover from burnout. I de-pathologize & support experiences related to neurodiversity.
With curiosity & open-mindedness, I'll work with you to uncover new perspectives on your story. I believe growth is possible when we are witnessed in all of our complexity and sensitivity. With over 10 years of experience, I’ve had great success in helping neurodivergent people (ADHD, autism, giftedness) have more satisfying relationships. Cell: 604 757 0342
