About

Every client is different and I believe that the healing process should be a collaborative one between therapist and client, one where the client feels empowered to be an active participant in the change that they seek for themselves. Progress looks like a client being able to not only be more self-aware of themselves but amenable of how they respond to triggers that, in the past, would have elicited a very different reaction. An ideal client is one that is willing to be their own change agent. My role is to not serve as their fairy godmother waving a wand, but rather an accountability partner and guide on their therapeutic journey.
My approach targets a lot of inner child work. I have realized that many of us have encountered events and significant points in our lives that have partially defined our identities. Inner child work allows for us to get to the root of certain behaviors and mental health issues to love and heal our inner beings and show up as our most authentic selves.
Making the decision to seek out therapy can be a daunting process and my initial approach is to always make someone feel welcomed, while being their most authentic self with me. I hope to create brave and safe spaces for clients to genuinely engage and be active change makers in their own process.
