The biggest turning point in my life was when I fully understood what it meant to be present. Healing practices such as meditation and yoga helped me to stop overthinking and silence the inner critic that had been running my life. By integrating these teachings into therapy, I want to help you do the same. Unresolved grief, trauma, feelings of abandonment, shame, and anger can trap us in our past. Similarly, if left unchecked, anxiety, fear, and worry about the future can stop us from living fully in the present. For BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ individuals, fear of violence and injustice adds more stress to the weight of these hardships.
You’ve taken the first step in listening to your body and mind tell you that it’s time for change. I’ll help you translate that inner voice into meaningful action. Together, we’ll work to improve body-awareness, get in touch with “stuck” emotions, and see how talking, conscious breathing, and intentional movement can clear blocked energy.
My humanistic and person-centered approach leans into the powerful philosophies of yoga. I use an integrative, holistic, and eclectic style of therapy that sources from psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, dialectical-behavioral, and somatic therapies. Together, we’ll enlist the techniques best suited to your personality and goals. Here is where we begin.
