"I work well with clients who have anxiety, depression, relational trauma, big emotions, dissociation, imposter syndrome, intense inner criticism, and those who identify as being on a spiritual path. My clients often feel that what they need to share about is too big or burdensome for the people in their life to be able to meet with sensitivity and presence. Or they feel stuck in some pattern or way of behaving/thinking that causes them pain and yet they have been unable to change. I also work with Couples who would like help reconnecting relationally, emotionally, or sexually/physically."

"I am curious about the inner stories that make people who they are. I became more in touch with my inner story after being pushed towards therapy by challenges I faced in my own life. Through therapy, I learned that old beliefs are like knots, and therapy can help you untangle them. The key to understanding my inner story was to pay attention to the wisdom of the body. Our bodies can communicate things that our mind does not know; getting in touch with this knowledge helps us become aware of our emotions."
