Welcome! It's so nice to meet you! As a clinician I'm passionate about how the past impacts our present lives physically, emotionally, & mentally. During a session with you, we'll work as a team on your journey of self-discovery & wellness, digging deep to understand who you are & what has happened to you, while also creating a healthy relationship with yourself and finding ways to cope that work for you. I work with clients on a range of concerns, including coping with anxiety & stress, relationship issues, women's concerns, navigating life with chronic diseases & pain, invisible disabilities, medical trauma, & suicidal ideation.
As a therapist I use many types of therapy techniques, integrating them in a holistic way to create the perfect fit just for you. Not every person is the same and each one needs an individualized approach. Together, we'll work to find what best suits you. With time & dedication I will help you choose which tools & knowledge you want to bring into your life.
Our sessions will incorporate empathy, support, & compassion through a trauma-informed lens. Without judgement, I strive to create a safe space where you can discover who you are & truly be yourself. I'll be with you every step of the way on your journey to reaching your goals. If this resonates with you please reach out to me, I'm looking forward to it!
