It can be uncomfortable, confusing, and overwhelming to look at complex parts of ourselves alone, and together in a supportive and compassionate space, we can explore these parts.

Therapy Style

I use an eclectic approach from evidence-based techniques to support you compassionately and authentically. I support individuals engage with life from a more centered, balanced, and fulfilled place. It can be uncomfortable, confusing, and overwhelming to look at many complex parts of ourselves alone. Unexamined, these parts can show up in our lives in different forms such as addictions, anxiety, depression, lack of self-esteem, codependency, stress, and dissatisfaction.

Feeling a sense of safety and connection is a necessary step to go deeper together and letting these parts of ourselves unfold. In a supportive setting, we can explore and listen deeply to these parts at a pace most suitable to you.
