Finding a therapist can be quite the “Where’s Waldo” if you haven’t looked before.
You’ve likely gone through experiences that has taught you and your body that it is unsafe to have a voice, to share, to be open, and to take space. Through this, you’ve felt overwhelmed, worn out, anxious or depressed, disconnected, or stagnant, amongst others. Your experiences may even affect the way you experience relationships, your career, self-care, growth, stress, and more.
But I also believe in your innate wisdom and that your body has something to say. That if we cultivate a caring, compassionate, and vulnerable space, we can heal those hidden spaces and walk towards a life of freedom. I’ve seen it; I’ve experienced it; and I believe its for you too.
I specialize in working with women who’ve experienced trauma and also work with couples looking to strengthen their relationship and cultivate a partnership that feels like home. I do this through individual counseling, pre-marital counseling, and couple’s work. We will explore what brings you to therapy, the events that have helped shape your way of being, what patterns have brought you to the place you are, and what your deepest needs are so that, together, you can learn to befriend your story and we can heal those places of brokenness that keep you from living the best life possible.
I work using a blend of body oriented therapies (somatic, yoga, mindfulness) with Marilyn Murray’s Parts Work, Lifespan Integration Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (couple’s counseling). If you have any questions about these or any other information you’ve read, please visit my FAQs page or contact me to schedule your initial session.
