Wherever you’ve been, however you’ve arrived, I’m glad you are here.
To me, therapy is about taking time and space to listen to our bodies and emotions, with the hope of allowing us to reconnect with our inherent wisdom. We don't lose touch with this wisdom by accident. Trauma, unhealed wounds, and oppression separate us from our wisdom and intuition, and impact our ability to access all parts of ourselves. You and your body carry so much, from the grief and resilience of those who came before you, to the stress of everyday life. You were never meant to carry it all on your own.
I approach therapy from a relational psychodynamic and attachment-based framework, with strong influences from intersectional feminism and trauma-informed care practices. I also believe that our individual health cannot be disentangled from our collective wellbeing and therapy is only one of many paths towards healing. I aim to hold space for the complexities of your story and navigate a path to understanding these experiences and their impact. In doing so, I hope to support you in feeling a greater sense of freedom and agency in the world.
I work best with clients who are willing to sit with the unknown. Clients who are open to the possibility that there are rarely simple answers or solutions. Clients who are ready to move beyond black and white thinking to “Both/And.”
Therapy helps create a safe setting for the shifts in feeling, thinking, and being that allows for growth over time. Some sessions may leave you feeling lighter; in other sessions you may feel tired from the hard work of naming and exploring your experiences. My job is to continue to build and uphold that safe space for you as you grow and evolve throughout the process.
