I create a warm, welcoming environment to express and discover your true self, which can be unfamiliar territory to do alone. I start with teaching practical coping skills like grounding and breathing exercises to help you feel safe in your body. I provide psycho-education on your symptoms and impairments to increase insight into your mental health. Whatever you discover in your journey, you will find me by your side, attuning to you and holding compassion, kindness, and truth to guide you home.

Hiking, writing poetry, reading, finding joy and beauty in the everyday
Giving myself space to just sit, journal, look at the sky, listen to music or a podcast. Give my mind space to wander as I walk or run.
