My intention is to support individuals to get in touch with the lived experience of the body, as it pertains to body-mind-spirit healing, personal development, and relational growth. My approach is theoretically holistic, however I am inspired by somatic and relational psychotherapy. The intention of my work is to support clients to identify, explore, and ultimately transform stuck patterns, so they become more capable of living happy, balanced lives. Similar to yoga, we need to challenge our edges at times in therapy in order to grow. My style is empathetic, nurturing, and direct, and I strive to engage with people in a way that honors their unique energy and intellect. Although I work with people of all ages, I primarily focus on adults, young adults, and teens.
