I work with clients on tools and strategies to help with symptom reduction while we uncover what you need for a deeper level of healing. In a safe, non-judgmental space I can help you identify the thoughts, narratives and distorted core beliefs that cause you suffering, keep you repeating the same patterns and block you from a higher quality of life. With gentleness and compassion we can explore the places you may get triggered and the old wounds that continue to cause fear and pain.

I work primarily with highly sensitive people who have been impacted, often in ways that do not seem significant, or that are not entirely acknowledged by society and culture as important or meaningful. These include early attachment issues, relational dilemmas, and environmental impacts due to over-sensitization. Through having worked across many domains, I have the capacity to help people understand their own internal dynamics much more clearly--in themselves and in their interrelations with others--so that the conscious changes they are wanting to make in their lives have the potential and possibility to actually manifest.

It is an honor to accompany individuals into the psyche where our deepest wounds are sometimes hidden. Healing energies can often be found in those depths, stimulating growth toward a more whole, authentic and satisfying existence. Sometimes the pain is on the surface, and symptom relief is necessary to allow the individual to return to a more effective functioning level. This can be accomplished through a combination of cognitive approaches (i.e., Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy) and body-centered approaches (i.e., focusing, embodied dream work, mindfulness).
