On the outside, you make success look easy, though it comes at a cost. You hide parts of yourself from the world, which leaves you wrestling with overwhelm, anxiety and/or self-esteem. You may even feel internal conflicts. My goal is to help alleviate the pain and difficulties you've been carrying alone by providing a caring and welcoming space. Together, we will look at various parts of yourself and find what's not working, so new patterns can emerge by deepening insight and finding pragmatic solutions. I enjoy helping clients improve communication, understand emotions, and create a healthy relationship with themselves and others.
I strive to create a space that is non-judgmental by using 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 Polyvagal to help you move into helpful patterns needed so you can reach your fullest potential.
This process isn't easy, and I want to acknowledge that. Thank you for taking time out of your day to read this. Please note, our office is out-of-network with insurance, but we file all out-of-network claims on your behalf after each session. If you are interested in working together, please get in touch with me for a free 15-minute consultation.

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

I conceptualize using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). CBT looks at how your feelings, thoughts, and behaviors impact each other. Additionally, I like to understand how your body may interact with the pattern. I support clients, so they can face and understand the overwhelming emotions felt through tangible ways to regulate while still going to the roots of the issue at hand.
