I believe that people are already whole and that what we perceive as our brokenness usually comes from some kind of disconnection from ourselves and other people. Anxiety, depression, a general feeling of loneliness or feeling unloveable, all these stem from these disconnections. I value and honor each person's individual experiences and needs, acknowledging that many of us lose our sense of our uniqueness along life's path. I hope to help you learn more about your self-worth in the face of previous relationships, families, and systems that have told you you aren't good enough.

I believe that we learn, struggle, fail, grieve, endure, and thrive best in the context of relationship. But even with the hope of connection, accepting the invitation of relationship may feel risky. Being seen and honored—not in spite of the unseen parts of you, but because of them—can feel upending, even dangerous. In a culture that by and large fosters virtual engagement over physical presence, this therapeutic work invites us back into our bodies, and back into genuine connection with ourselves and others. When we are aware of our emotional and bodily experience, we then gain the ability to regulate that experience.
