Relationships are as important to us as food and water. They can strengthen us, like a vitamin, or weaken us, like the flu. You are only as good in relationships as the relationships you have been in. As your therapist, I can assist you in many ways. I can help you learn more about yourself, increase both self-compassion and compassion for others, and heal past trauma. Together, we can explore how to feel more connected to yourself, your values, and people you care about.

I am profoundly aware of the tremendous courage it takes to seek help. Particularly, when you are coming from a life you have often been forced to endure heavily weighed upon by anxiety, trauma, depression, and addiction. This deeply rooted awareness of this pain is why I first entered the field of psychology and has successfully guided my work in assisting my clients to overcome their many barriers and difficulties. My approach offers the skills and self-awareness needed to establish the capacity towards supporting you to reach the kind of life you imagined possible.

It is my belief that healing comes from within you, and within the context of relationship. I practice Somatic Experiencing therapy, which focuses on positive psychology and the concept of healing at a biological and nervous system level (reconnecting the mind and body as one). As a facilitator and witness to this healing, I have had the privilege of working with clients experiencing a variety of presenting issues. I aim to provide a space for you to be your truest self, to help you to create more balance in your life, to break free from old patterns, and to expand your natural capacity to heal.

Finding a therapist can feel dark, and you are looking for some light at the end of the tunnel. My name is Sunshine and I am the therapist that brings personality, vibrance, and radical genuineness to all my sessions. Typically, I help those who have experienced long-standing trauma, those who numbed their pain through substances or self-harm, or people who have experienced racial trauma. Instead of feeling misunderstood, you need a place to be seen authentically. I am the therapist who will hold space for your emotions and motivate you to believe things will improve.

I approach psychotherapy from a whole-person perspective and I believe therapy, along with other practices, can help us awaken to a life of meaning. In therapy I will help you identify the source of your longing to be whole, and together, we will move closer to that source, so you become re-sourced. Together we will explore your innate natural cycles and help you align to your own rhythm, so that you might meet depletion with rest and energy with creativity.
