About

For those of us who do not feel loved and appreciated by this world, it can be difficult to trust ourselves and to honor our worth. Maybe the intergenerational traumas and ongoing struggles of our cultures and communities lead us to disconnect from others or to feel dissociated from ourselves. Maybe we diminish our feelings or hide parts of ourselves as survival strategies. When tangible systemic change seems slow or even impossible, it can also feel like self-love and joy are forever out of our reach.
It takes courage to be kind to ourselves in a world that can feel unwelcoming. And it often requires deeper work to heal parts of ourselves that are afraid to trust ourselves and others. Sometimes, we need someone by our side for our truest self to emerge and for our own self-love to blossom. I believe that we all possess the capacity to heal and grow.
I will listen to your stories and experiences with warm, gentle curiosity. I am trained in somatic and trauma-informed therapies that engage the wisdom of our emotions and our body to heal trauma, enhance your connections with others, and bring about embodied insight and relief. Reach out for a free 30-minute consultation. I look forward to meeting you!
