Life can often feel overwhelming. Many of us have developed patterns of thinking, feeling and connecting to help us get by, but are finding that they may no longer be helpful. Whether you are needing support in managing overwhelming feelings of anxiety or depression, suffering from unresolved experiences in childhood or adulthood, or hoping to repair painful or conflict-filled relationships, therapy can be a place of support for you to move away from unhelpful patterns and experiences to live in ways that feel safe, secure, even enjoyable.
My hope is that you feel safe, supported and in control of your life. I approach each session based on what you need, while always checking in on safety, how your symptoms are showing up in your body, and what is currently impacting you most. I hope to help you tune into yourself & your patterns and receive support to make meaningful change.
My hope is that therapy will be a place where you can "try on" new ways of thinking, feeling and living, develop healthier patterns and more capacity for connection as you heal. I'd love to support you as you access your innate resilience to the trauma, suffering and emotional distress you have and will experience so you can have a life of meaning and ease!
