"I'll help you turn your inner critic into an inner ally."
Deciding to take the first step towards healing can feel uncomfortable and intimidating, but it is also one of the most courageous steps you can take. Having a safe space to feel authentically seen is such an important part of the healing process. As a therapist, my goal is to co-create that safe space to help you explore and understand yourself with compassion, curiosity, and gentleness. This is how I believe true and lasting change can take place.
My therapeutic style is warm, collaborative, down-to-earth, and compassion-focused. I work from a holistic, integrative approach that recognizes the individual needs of each person. In my training as a marriage and family therapist, I have been honored to have worked with a wide range of clients from all ages, cultural backgrounds, and walks of life. I have experience in community-based mental health settings and have been trained to work with a variety of treatment modalities including Emotion-Focused, CBT, and Family Systems. I also have a special interest in utilizing “parts-work” and IFS in therapy, which recognizes that we all have various “parts” within us that may be hidden/burdened and that deserve to be met with patience and empathy.
Past traumas and current stressors in our lives can leave us feeling overwhelmed, disconnected, and stuck. I feel most passionate about helping people get “unstuck” by digging deeper into core beliefs, unconscious patterns, and through developing a more loving relationship with yourself. I believe that you are the expert on your life, and that my role as a therapist is to help get you to a place in which you feel empowered to access your innate wisdom and strength. I would be honored to become a part of your healing journey.
