About

On the outside, you make success look easy, though it comes at a cost. You hide parts of yourself leaving you wrestling with shame, guilt, self-esteem, or loneliness. In turn, relationships may feel constantly unsatisfactory. Through my supportive and calm nature, I work to offer a safe space that recognizes the tension within yourself and others, so you can move closer to your authentic self. I can help you improve communication, manage emotions, and create a healthy relationship with yourself and others. I am passionate about empowering you to live the life you love by deepening your insight and finding practical solutions.
I strive to create a space that is non-judgmental by incorporating humor, patience, and curiosity. In sessions, I use a holistic lens to understand how culture, your health, and the past impact you today to identify unhelpful patterns. I pull techniques from CBT and mindfulness to help you move into helpful patterns needed so you can thrive.
I currently offer flexible telehealth appointments and some in-person sessions. Our office is out-of-network with insurance, but we file all out-of-network claims on your behalf after each session. If you want to work together, please get in touch with me for a free 15-minute consultation. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

"Savannah has a gentle, warm way of talking that makes you feel safe. Don't let that fool you though; just because she's patient, doesn't mean she won't catch patterns and unhealthy behaviors effortlessly. She just waits until you're ready to acknowledge it"
