I am grateful to have the opportunity to explore challenges people are experiencing and tapping into their strengths to help them feel empowered to overcome these. I have experience and enjoy working with people who may experience the world through a unique lens and those who may have a history of adverse life experiences. The typical client I work with is an adolescent or adult and may struggle with internalizing emotions and get easily overstimulated, have lower self-esteem, or challenges with social interaction. They may feel misunderstood by important people in their lives. My approach in therapy draws from various modalities and often involves building mindful awareness and is informed by the impact of trauma and what is helpful for healing. I look to find ways to get creative and have fun in the process! My support extends to people of diverse backgrounds and experiences. I look forward to meeting with you and working as a team at whatever step you are on in your healing journey.
Below is a song I wrote called "need some time" as I believe routinely taking time to care for ourselves is important to live our best lives:
