I work great with...

  • Couples who are open to growth by reflecting on their past and finding how it affects their present day relationship. 
  • Parents who view their children as individuals and curious how to best support them through self exploration. 
  • Women who want to deconstruct the societal conditioning placed upon them.  
  • Couples who are looking to create their version of a safe and healthy connective partnership by using boundaries and compassion towards one another. 
  • Women who are searching for their identity after entering Motherhood. 
  • Couples who have one or both partners transitioning.

Style & Approach

Clients describe me as warm and kind with a direct approach. I practice kindness with honesty and honesty with kindness. I respect that you are the expert on your own life and we work together to find where you are feeling stuck, anxious, or fearful. I ask many questions to gain clarity on your narrative, with this we can put the puzzle pieces together.

Some of the approaches I Use...

  • Attachment Theory
  • Collaborative
  • Self-Compassion
  • Unconditional Positive Regard
  • Somatic Experiencing
  • Emotional Literacy
  • Thought Exploration and Strategies
  • Feminist Approach
  • Mindfulness
