I want to support you in living and feeling into the fullness of your life. Sometimes past stressors, traumas and grief can get in the way of truly seeing yourself, having nurturing relationships and experiencing joy. I can help you identify lifelong patterns and closely examine whether they are helpful, harmful, or dated in order to reveal your authentic self. My goal is to help you connect to yourself so you can navigate the ebb and flow of life with more ease.
I love learning, growing and sharing this with others! My style engages the mind, opens the heart and is grounded in the body. I provide trauma informed and culturally informed therapy; I am LGBTQIA+ and trans affirmative. My training is in expressive arts, mindfulness, Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy, and Psychedelic Integration.
I love this work and I feel truly honored to meet everyone I’ve gotten to know along the way. I find it a privilege to be with folx in their toughest moments and brightest joys! Even if you’re uncertain about where to begin, let’s talk. I offer a free 20-minutes Q+A so we can find care that is safe, supportive and effective. Looking forward to connecting.
