Why I do this work:

I understand what it’s like to feel as if you don’t belong, as if you’re invisible, like a misfit who has to hide who you are in order to feel safe. I spent many years of my life in that place not realizing the impact it was having on me emotionally, mentally and physically. Over time, the impacts began to become more clear, more painful, and harder to suppress. Through my own healing journey I have been able to cultivate safe relationships with others and within myself. I began to have experiences where I could be more and more myself while being seen in who I am. Now I feel safe, accepted, and even encouraged and celebrated.


It is such an honor to hold space for and help guide folks who are wanting more in their life, more authenticity, connection, and safety to be their full selves. These are all possible and through building safe relationship with others who have earned your trust and cultivating trust internally, these shifts can start to happen. Whether you’ve experienced emotional neglect from your childhood and are unsure how to start prioritizing yourself and your needs, struggle with a harsh inner critic, or are interested in expanding and deepening your relationship with yourself and others; I’m excited to help you connect to your inner truth and inner knowing so you can feel agency and empowerment in your experience.

 

My approach is kind, compassionate, non-judgmental and consent-oriented. In my work with clients, I bring in a body awareness, relational, and parts work approach so that we can begin to listen to and connect to your inner experience in a way that feels manageable and authentic.

I help guide clients into deeper ways to understand themselves, their needs, emotions, and what’s being stored in their body and finding safe pathways of expression for these. As we build ability to understand and attune to your inner experience, you will also be learning ways to identify and meet your needs internally and with others. You will begin experiencing a deeper sense of confidence in and embodied connection to your full self. This will allow you to feel competent in consistently showing up for and tending to yourself in compassionate and accessible ways.

 

I know what it is like to feel like you have to do it all on your own or feel scared or nervous to reach out and receive support. I am also very familiar with the burn out and fatigue that can accompany the weight of that experience. We were never meant to do all of this on our own and so much transformation can occur when we feel safe to be seen in all of who we are. And when we get to access the deep joy of being acknowledged, accepted and celebrated. If this resonates with you, I’d love to hear from you and see if we may be a great fit in working together.

 

Thank you for taking this brave step to seek care for yourself. You are so very worth it.
