Thank you for taking the first step toward your healing! Walking with clients on the path toward better wellness is truly an honor. My core values are the love of learning, honesty, growth, kindness, and respect, which all show up in my work with clients. I pride myself in co-creating a safe space for clients to be fully seen, heard, and supported. My approach is inclusive, compassionate, direct, innovative, and non-judgmental, with some humor thrown in the mix. With over 16 years of experience in wellness, my philosophy integrates mindfulness, somatics, breathwork, and holistic practices.
My past experience ranges from working with children in school settings to adults, couples, and families in private practice. I’m passionate about helping people navigate life’s challenges. I have experience with clients with trauma, relationship issues, anxiety, depression, grief/loss, PTSD, LGBTQ+ issues, sex issues, life transitions, and more.
I am grateful that you're here, taking the first step towards a more fulfilled life. It would be my pleasure to work with you. I have a waitlist currently, and I generally see individual adolescent(16+), adult clients and couples. I look forward to connecting with you to see if we are a good fit!
