About

Reaching out for help in any capacity can feel incredibly difficult and scary. My goal is to welcome you into a space where you feel safe, seen and heard, and to work with you right where you are at. This is your journey, and I am here to offer support and resources to guide you in the direction you desire to go. Whether you are struggling with anxiety, have unhealed wounds and trauma from the past, or are currently struggling with issues such as infertility, grief and loss (not just death experiences), or just need a safe space to feel, process and heal, I am here for you.
I use a collaborative, client-centered approach to help you better regulate your emotions, understand your attachments, and guide you to becoming the person you want to be. I also believe that our bodies can tell us a lot, so I incorporate basic somatic work in my practice to help you reconnect with your body in a healing way.
Your story matters. If you are struggling and looking for support, I would be honored to help. Please feel free to reach out to reach out to see if we are a good fit. I offer a free 15-20 minute video or phone consultation. You can email me to schedule a time that works for you. I am under supervision of Angela Kronenberg (License C4393).
