About

Sometimes we need someone who “sees” us, understands us, and is able to partner with us in our struggles. I work with clients with issues ranging from workplace/career struggles to childhood trauma. The human response to suffering is complex where intertwined systems react - mind, body, and spirit. I help my clients put the pieces together, and recognize how their pain may be manifesting in their life. Many times my clients struggle with not knowing who they are, how they feel, or what they think. I work with my clients on building tools that help them unravel their systems, recognize behavior patterns, and improve their well-being.
I specialize in helping clients with depression, anxiety, mid-life transitions, workplace issues, and trauma; Whether you’re navigating a high-pressure career, life transition, depression/anxiety, or just feeling overwhelmed, I can help. The mind and body are interconnected. I specialize in helping you unravel your symptoms to help heal your whole self.
It's important to feel comfortable & safe with whomever you work with. Finding a therapist requires a deep alliance & healing hinges on that therapeutic relationship. When you're struggling that relationship becomes even more important. Sometimes it's hard to take the first step and ask for help. I honor you reaching out, taking the 1st step towards healing.
