About

Sometimes in life we reach a point where we aren’t quite sure which way to go, when we no longer quite know what to do, and finding the answers on our own feels impossible. I am here to help you navigate these crossroads and find a way forward, wherever you may be on your path. I will meet you with a non-judgmental, compassionate, and supportive presence and work with you to find a direction of growth, healing, and deeper knowing. I have a passion for supporting individuals through depression, anxiety, parenting, life transitions, transgenerational trauma, and chronic illness.
I believe our greatest challenges are a call to grow, learn, & heal. I practice integral psychology and draw from a range of therapeutic modalities that are tailored to your unique needs. I utilize mindful self-compassion, Internal Family Systems, Inner-Child work, and Polyvagal Theory as catalysts to deep inner-healing and positive change.
Working together, we will explore the deeper meaning of your life and relationships as well as the underlying reasons for the challenges and difficulties that keep you from moving forward. I will assist you in discovering and working through whatever obstacles may be keeping you from living your most vibrant, full, and aligned life.
