THERAPY FOR A HARSH WORLD
Let's Slow Down Together.
I will take my time with you to understand your identities, challenges, hopes, and internal resources. I will support you in identifying the power of choice you have when faced with uncertainty. My goal in this tender work together is that we move to a place of responding rather than reacting to life's unfolding.
I provide a holistic approach to therapy, serving adults of all genders. I use an interwoven approach to counseling, tailoring my work to your individual needs and strengths. I primarily draw from Intersectional Feminist ideas and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), an evidence-based approach that helps clients make observable and powerful behavior changes in their lives.
AREAS OF FOCUS:
Stress & Anxiety
Highly Sensitive Personality Type
Pregnancy & Postpartum
Effects of: Toxic Whiteness, Misogyny,
Homophobia, Transphobia, Capitalism
- Identity, larger social systems, culture, and context have a huge impact on your mental health.
-You may have become stuck in ways that reflect your life experience of needing to survive or stay safe.
-The body holds sacred wisdom for healing. We can work with your nervous system to support your mental health.
-You are growth oriented. Growth is not linear.
-We all heal in relationship with one another. No human was built to get through life alone.
-All bodies are intelligent, good, valid, and worthy.
-You are human, and doing the best you can with what you have. There is no such thing as perfection.
