About

Hello there! If you are reading this, chances are you are looking for some kind of support –whether for yourself or for someone else. It can be a scary step to seek help… I should know, I’ve been there as well. I’ve always connected with the misfits and outcasts and those that don’t quite fit in. Whether it’s because you have different interests than your peers… or struggling as a minority in a majority dominant community/field… or because of familial/personal circumstances that make it hard to connect…or just the general sense of being different or not enough… If that sounds like you, we may be a good fit.
I strongly believe that the mind-body connection is important to understand our sense of self and mental and physical well-being. My approach is compassionate, collaborative, non-judgmental, flexible and creative in a way that works for you because therapy does not have to be put in a box.
I will do my best to support you within the best of professional competency. Therapy is not just about recovery but also about promoting wellness, connection, and sense of self. Please reach out if you would like a 20-minute free phone consultation or go ahead and book yourself in through the website link!
