Announcement icon I am only seeing clients in person with masks and I am still offering online visits.
You have a critical inner voice saying you aren’t good enough, you’re an imposter, or you’re a burden to those you care about. Your mental health is impacting your physical health, you have trouble sleeping, and you find it difficult to manage your thoughts, emotions, and stress levels. You also have difficulty navigating relationships (especially family ones) and you want to have healthier relationships where you can speak honestly about your feelings and needs, feel less guilt, and find peace of mind. You also want to understand your emotional triggers and find healthy ways to soothe yourself.
I will help you develop self-compassion and quiet the inner critic. I will also teach you tools to better manage your stress, find life/work balance, and get what you need in your relationships. Using Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, I will help you understand how stress, anxiety, and depression may be related to unprocessed trauma being stored in the body.
In addition to offering therapy that incorporates the body, I work from a culturally responsive, LGBTQ+ affirming, kink knowledgeable, anti-racist approach. I am also passionate about holistic health. You can learn more about my approach and request an appointment by visiting my website, or you can email/call to schedule a free consultation call.
