You deserve to feel seen, heard, and accepted as you are - right now. From there, we can reflect on: what would you like your life to look like 3 months from now, 6 months from now, or in a year? I truly consider it a privilege to walk alongside you as you share your story, uncover and rediscover your strengths, and take steps toward the life you most want. I am not here to fix you, because you are not broken; you are becoming.
My intention is to offer a safe space where you can be completely yourself, and I will welcome ALL of you. We’re all complicated, messy, and human. I include myself in this description, and my goal is to provide you with my authenticity, non-judgment, compassion, genuine curiosity, and (at times) humor. My style tends to be more nurturing than directive.
I tailor my sessions to your unique needs and will collaborate with you to determine what works best for you. Please know that if you are struggling with troubling intrusive thoughts, self-harm, or suicidal ideation, I will explore these with you with curiosity and compassion, not reactivity. If you think we may be a good fit, please reach out today.
