About

My ideal client is curious, growth inspired, and has experienced trauma. I work with codependency, those that have been effected by narcissism, addiction, low self worth and generational trauma. I have a fondness and offer my support to those that are parents, co-parents and caretakers of children, or those that can not take care of themselves. I enjoy working with people with relationships as their focus, walking them through dating and the search for a partner or those that feel stuck in their relationships and need a space to share their confusion, fear and not knowing.
What I offer is a supportive presence, and genuine curiosity. I truly enjoy people and being with what is, as well as, supporting them in their desire for growth and or change. I can offer a supportive space, observation of how one's body, breath and stories align, I can offer empathy, humor, grace, strength and insight depending on the clients needs.
Feel free to reach out me for a complimentary 15 minute consultation. I offer 50 and 90 min sessions. I like to interweave breathing, sometimes movement and a highly relational connection with every client I work with.
