I provide online video-based therapy for adults who are seeking a respectful, collaborative space to explore their inner experiences. My strengths lie in my attentive witnessing to emotion and body as pathways to unlocking each person’s innate ability to heal themselves, access authenticity, and achieve goals to build towards their vision of a meaningful life. The language of depression, anxiety, trauma, OCD, neurodiversity and more may be helpful in addressing day to day challenges or symptoms, though I also see each person as a complex whole of self, relationships, and culture. Whatever brings you to therapy, you are welcome.
As a psychotherapist, I work on the level of the heart. I bring warmth, presence, deep empathy, and unconditional compassion to my clients. My work is grounded in mindfulness which allows us to open up to our experience with presence and compassion which supports change rather than judgment which keeps us stuck. I believe we have a natural capacity for growth, healing, and self-actualization which often gets blocked by our beliefs. I blend mindfulness based therapies such as Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy and Somatic Awareness with other evidence-based modalities such as Internal Family Systems and Acceptance & Commitment Therapy. I also draw from Non-Violent Communication to teach effective communication skills.
What I love most about doing therapy is helping people find self-love and grow their self-worth. I’m passionate about providing an emotionally safe and physically comfortable space for people to connect with themselves and express their deepest truths. I feel a deep honor to be a compassionate witness, support, and guide through times of both darkness and light.
