Transforming our inner dialogues and practicing radical self compassion is an important part of healing. Speaking to oneself with gentleness and compassion can be a challenge for many, but we are all worthy of our own kindness. I am here to offer support in your healing journey with yourself. My approach is warm, patient, strengths based, and practical. I offer tools that clients can use to support their personal growth and healing, both during and outside of sessions. This includes learning how to build distress tolerance, learning emotional regulation skills, and practicing strategies for transforming inner thoughts.
My role is to listen deeply, reflect, and validate. I use a combination of talk therapy, expressive arts, mindfulness, compassion focused therapy, somatic therapy, CBT, and DBT during sessions. I believe that my clients are the experts of their own lives, and I work collaboratively with them to find language that best validates their experiences.
Building safety is very important in healing work. I am committed to bringing decolonial and anti-racist practices to my work with clients. Our identities impact all of our relationships, and I welcome discussion about how identity shows up in therapy.
