I offer a space for individuals who are struggling to feel seen and heard. Showing up for yourself isn’t always easy – especially for folx who are caring for others. People view you as the “strong and reliable one” or someone who “has it together”. You’re doing the best you can, but you find yourself feeling drained. Even if you’re setting aside time for self-care, you may not feel rested or refreshed. This might show up as a feeling of disconnection from yourself, your community, or your work.
Therapy offers a space to get reconnected. Dedicating time to explore and understand who you are today can help you show up in more fulfilling and authentic ways. I view therapy as a collaborative effort and work with people to create an experience that best supports their journey.
I work from a relational gestalt approach in that building a strong therapeutic alliance and increasing my clients' self-awareness through body-focused techniques are overarching goals of therapy. As an expressive arts therapist, I love working with people who want to incorporate creative arts (music, movement, writing, drama) into their therapeutic work.
