I provide mindful and compassionate psychotherapy to adults, adolescents and couples who are suffering or are seeking to make changes in their lives.
With whole-hearted presence and care, I seek to provide a warm space for you to be as you are without fear of judgment.
Working from a holistic perspective, I integrate trauma-sensitive, mindfulness, body-oriented, and attachment-focused approaches. I synthesize strategies from diverse methodologies, including Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Internal Family Systems, Emotionally Focused Psychotherapy, and Non-Violent Communication.
Using these tools, I’ll help you slow down and notice the dynamics, beliefs, and behaviors that cause you suffering. By helping you cultivate deeper self-awareness, I support you to release the harmful patterns that no longer serve you.
My approach is active, engaged and supportive. I am not interested in labeling you or in looking for “what’s wrong with you.” I am here to hold a caring space for your experience, and to help you find a way to live with more ease and satisfaction.
I bring a social-justice and feminist lens to this work and value supporting clients with marginalized identities address the impact of racism, homophobia, sexism, abelism and other forms of discrimination.
Working together, I can help you gain more access to your innate wisdom, resilience, and capacity for growth, and support you in (re)connecting with your underlying wholeness.
