If you’re on a journey of coming back to yourself, your body, and your wholeness, you’ve come to right place. If you’ve been feeling that it’s time to unpack the traumas you’ve been carrying for too long, or if you’re ready to get to know all of the parts of you, even the ones you tend to look away from in shame, you’ve come to the right place. You have the power to create a life you are excited about—a life you're fully here for. You have the power to embrace, heal, and live into every facet of yourself. I would be honored to support you to open your hands to the power you hold.
I specialize in supporting individuals who are ready to transform their trauma, grief, anxiety, or addictive patterns into insight and healing. Integrating somatic and cognitive techniques from Internal Family Systems (IFS), EMDR, Polyvagal Theory, MI, and CBT, I’ll help you get to know your many parts so you can embrace and live into the full, nuanced you.
Harness your creative power to heal. Breathe into who you really are. Walk bravely into the rest of your life. You have the tools you need within, and you don't have to do this alone. I can help you access your strength, wisdom, and power and find beauty and play in the process of healing. Schedule a free consultation to find out if we're a good fit.
