How I can help
I specialize in helping people with anxiety, depression and unresolved trauma. Through my work with clients I help them to feel less disconnected from their bodies, sleep better, and feel less overwhelmed. Clients have reported feeling more sense of ease and empowerment after working with me. Learn how to connect with yourself more and learn the art of practicing self compassion to change the way that you experience the world.
How I work
I collaborate with my clients by assisting them in identify patterns which are no longer serving them. I encourage my clients to be compassionate towards themselves to facilitate change in their lives. Working from an empathic-based perspective, I teach clients to nurture themselves by using tools of mindfulness to help them to find their strengths to improve their lives.
As a therapist I strive to create a safe and compassionate environment. My main objective is to help foster resiliency in clients. I work from a holistic approach, bringing mind, body and spirit together to facilitate personal healing. Through the use of breathwork, EFT, acupressure, and art therapy.
I work from a strength-based, solution focused and self-compassion mindfulness perspective therapy. My goal in therapy is to help my clients externalize their problems so that they can view them through a new perspective, through the use of mindfulness, art, words, and sensations.
My areas of experience include anxiety, addiction, trauma, OCD, depression, and identity. I have a special interest in helping heal communication issues and misunderstandings with teens, families, and couples. I specialize in LGBT issues and enjoy helping this population build more meaningful and open lives.
