How would you describe therapy with you?

Entering a therapy room for the first time can feel intimidating. As a counselor I truly strive for an environment where the client can explore the presenting concerns and underlying patterns that brought them to seeking services in the first place. I actively listen from a compassionate and curious place, witnessing along with holding space for the vulnerability in the therapeutic journey. I believe that we all have an inner sense of what is best for ourselves; sometimes we just need tools to help tap into it. I strive to create a safe and empathetic environment where you feel seen and heard.

My Personal Journey:

I have been a client myself for many years which is a gigantic reason behind why I pursued this field. The bond between therapist and client is sacred and built upon safety and trust which I intimately understand and respect. I enjoy working with clients on nurturing the connection between the mind and body. It is powerful!  I enjoy working through processing life events that have occurred with individuals or couples. I love to provide resources for my clients such as books, meditations, or podcast recommendations.
