Your anxiety is sucking the life out of you. Maybe you find yourself constantly doubting everything you say and do. You have this awful voice inside that tells you something is fundamentally wrong with you... that you’re not good enough, or smart enough, or worthy enough, despite how hard you try to shut it up. Your relationships feels superficial. You overthink and stay small, because feeling lonely at least feels less scary than being rejected. But you hate that feeling too...so the cycle continues. There's a nagging feeling like how you grew up has something to do with this.
I specialize in working with childhood/complex trauma, and adult children of emotionally immature parents. Through IFS, attachment work, mindfulness and somatic based approaches, I help my clients feel calm in their bodies, unburden past traumas, work through their relationship hangups, and find their truest, most whole Self, that was there all along.
My deepest hope is for you to be filled with an abundant sense of enoughness and worthiness of love. I am committed to creating a safe, nonjudgemental and accepting space for my clients to lay it all out there, to be messy, and to grow and heal, and to ultimately thrive. Give me a call for a free, no strings attached consult. I'd love to help.

Life brings you to your knees. It brings you lower than you think you can go. But if you stand back up and move forward, if you just go a little farther, you will always find love. - Dan Fogelman

My main framework comes from advanced Level 1 training in an evidence based approach called Internal Family Systems (IFS), which helps you understand your own inner world and access your innate ability to transform and heal. Additionally, I pull from attachment based therapy and polyvagal tools to regulate your nervous system for a holistic approach.
