Therapy can help us to connect with ourselves and others, find meaning, joy, love, acceptance, playfulness and peace of mind. If you are recovering from trauma, if you are stuck or struggling, therapy can create a safe space to work through painful and difficult emotions and experiences in order to live better and feel better. I value creativity, compassion and collaboration. My approach is drawn from attachment theory, narrative therapy, trauma-informed somatic therapies, mindful self-compassion and relational therapy.

I am accepting new clients. We all stumble and work to find our way back, but sometimes life adds challenges that make these ups and downs harder to navigate. Relationship struggles, shifting goals, social pressures and the added stress that comes with change can leave us overwhelmed, make us feel stuck, make us question if we're good enough or make make our decisions feel impossible. Support can help us to examine our paths and patterns and to regain our confidence so that we can build the life we want.

As whole women, our brain, body and spirit uniquely regulates the Self. If one or more of these connections are malfunctioning or broken, it can affect everything in our life from relationships, to career uncertainty, to personal success etc. Each of us has an extraordinary power within that when tapped into can transform our lives. Healing the Self from within has profound effects on a woman's life. Your capacity to be, care, grow, and give can improve over time with guidance, clarity and practice. Contentment and happiness are the result of connecting to your true Self and living in alignment with such.

Life can bring on many challenges and difficulties, we may struggle with moments of distress and feel like we need help. I see psychotherapy as a powerful tool that can help you gain insight into your own inner dynamic and facilitate psychological, social, and emotional changes. It can help you explore and become aware of old unhelpful or unskillful coping patterns that were maybe once useful and necessary, but now no longer serve you. By raising awareness of habitual patterns or habits, we open up to the possibility of choosing otherwise and rewiring our brain accordingly.
