Welcome. What an honor to find yourself starting or continuing your journey of healing through counseling. Therapy is a collaborative process whereby I will guide you to finding your own innate wisdom. The body holds all the answers it needs within itself, but at times, we lose sight of how to find those answers. Allow me to support you in finding the pathway to the answers you need most in assisting you on your journey to health and wholeness.
I offer a space of unconditional positive regard and acceptance for who you as a human-being have become. I have compassion for how you have learned to survive the suffering that can come with being alive and the experiences of life itself. We all encounter various forms of suffering that leads us to habits that help us to survive rather than to thrive. By uncovering these adaptive strategies we can begin to implement new habits that allow you to experience life and your connection to yourself more fully and vibrantly. Through somatic therapy one can learn how the mind-body forms and interacts with specific environments. It is from this place that a vast amount of untapped resources can be found and the innate wisdom of the body resides.
My approach with clients is grounded both in science and the art of psychotherapy to create a balance of the two. I graduated from Naropa University with an MA in Somatic Therapy, specifically Body psychotherapy, I am also a certified animal-assisted practitioner.
Outside of work with clients, you can find me hiking, creating art, immersed in time with loved ones and my fur family of 3 (1 pup, 2 cats), in nature, and researching random hobbies/interests. Thank you for taking the time to read this and I look forward to connecting with you!
