Life gets tangled up; it doesn’t have to stay that way. You may be wrestling with emotional ups and downs, life transitions, grief and loss, or strained family dynamics. You could be exploring future options, challenges from the past, or integrating life experiences into your personal or spiritual framework. Whether preparing for adulthood or navigating life's myriad of challenges, my clients are looking for a safe and empathetic space in which to unravel patterns and perspectives. They are seeking to develop a stronger sense of their own strengths and abilities with which to navigate life’s journey.
In my 20 years as a clinician, I have developed expertise working with adolescents and adults through a relational, trauma informed and somatic/body based lens, with attention towards my client's unique learning style and world view. I am determinedly curious and lean into humor, out-of-the-box thinking, and faith in my client’s inner resources and knowing.
I believe Life calls us where we need to go, although the signals can be difficult to track! If this feels resonant to your path, please reach out for an initial consultation. I would love the chance to connect.
