Professional statement

Welcome! I take a holistic approach to therapy to meet you where you are. I know that there are different orientations in addition to each one of us having unique needs, coming from diverse cultures and life conditions. To honor you and your lived experience, I get to know you, and engage with you conversationally to get a feel for how best I can support you in your particular phase of healing. I am also cognizant that support might look different at various phases of therapy. I draw upon the clinical education and training that I have received; but most importantly, I utilize my intuition and my learning and witnessing of you to guide me. This connection building leads to a more intimate experience. It is my intention that you feel more integrated, authentic, and whole.

My style is compassionate, calm, collaborative, and genuine. In session, I offer an interactive style based on trust and respect so that you don’t feel alone in your experience and that you feel safe to embody whatever arises within you. I integrate the physical body, emotions, nervous system, mind, and spirit. I received rigorous training in the following disciplines that I draw upon: depth psychology; psychodynamic psychology; somatic therapy; trauma-informed therapy (EMDR and Trauma Resiliency Model); addiction medicine and recovery; cognitive behavioral therapy; modern attachment theory; mindfulness; art therapy, meditation; executive coaching; and, yoga. I specialize in anxiety, depression, addiction, trauma, life transitions, relational distress, chronic health conditions, bereavement, codependency, and spirituality.

Previously, I pursued international development and community health sciences conducting research and working throughout Sub-Saharan Africa. I worked in the health and wellness industry ranging from nutrition and health coaching to yoga instruction. My life’s work is dedicated to wellbeing and I look forward to exploring your inner world together.


Message to clients

Finding the right “match” can feel overwhelming and equally important to the therapeutic alliance. I am committed to maintaining an inclusive practice to ensure clients feel safe, heard, and as an equal partner in the therapeutic process. With a background in meditation and yoga, sessions with me integrate both insight-oriented and skills-based approaches to include the mind, body, and soul. I work with clients to explore the root barriers, to gain new awareness into emotional and relational patterns. At the same time, I focus on practical strategies, with an emphasis on relaxation and meditation practices, to help clients integrate their felt experience.
