Did you grow up feeling like you didn't fit in, always sensing you were different but unsure why? You might not recall experiencing anything you'd consider traumatic, but you still felt invisible, misunderstood, or perhaps like you were too much. Friendships may have ended suddenly or without clear reasons, adding to your confusion. As an adult, you've figured out how to blend in at work and in social situations, concealing your differences, but at the cost of losing touch with yourself. Now, you struggle to identify your needs until the overwhelm sets in. You're tired of feeling this way and want to be seen and heard. I can help.
I specialise in supporting individuals, couples and multiple-partnered people. My trauma-informed approach includes specialist training in domestic violence, childhood trauma, and sexual trauma. My practice affirms diversity in gender, sexuality, and relationship styles. I offer therapy in English and Spanish.
I understand that enquiring about therapy can feel scary. I strive to make the process as down-to-earth and relatable as possible. I work online, so you can work with me from the comfort of your preferred space and around your other commitments. If you've connected with any of the above, book a free 20-minute call with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
