Professional statement

At Sauna Therapy, we’re here to work with you so you that you can begin celebrating yourself. We believe in honoring your journey and bearing witness to your experience with radical acceptance and kindness. We hear your pain, your story and believe in your growth. We see you with kind eyes rather than through a judgmental lens. We accept you and all of the explosive and raw vulnerability that you bring into our sessions. We partner with you, knowing that therapy is hard work but you’re more than capable.

We want to celebrate you.

My style is warm, attuned, and relaxed incorporating research-backed therapeutic modalities that make therapy #feelgood.

My clinical orientation is humanistic with interest in the biological system as it relates to trauma and mental health conditions. I specialize in understanding the connection between the body, stress and dissociation using the lens of psychoneuroimmunology.
