About me...  with you!
My Philosophy
 
I find the magic of therapy is in the co-created space for you to focus completely on yourself in order to look inside for answers, work through patterns and feelings that are ready to be dealt with and experience the healing of having someone else to talk with and connect to about your most personal thoughts and feelings. I believe that life is an ongoing process of ups and downs and new lessons to be learned that can be supported through a therapy setting. 
 
The most important factor for successful therapy is being guided by someone you can feel comfortable with and learn to trust with time; someone who has the expertise to help you navigate through the sometimes unknown and choppy waters of your experiences.

 It is my goal to be this person for my clients.

I have a passion working with those looking for insight and personal transformation in order to become their most genuine and balanced selves. 
    

Hummingbirds are generaly considered to be a heart centered animal totem and embody fierce determination despite great odds.

My Approach

I believe in a holistic approach to therapy, which means that I feel it is important to examine how your body and spirit play a role in wellness, as well as your thoughts and emotions. 

This might include exploring and incorporating your own spiritual beliefs, experiences and practices but definitely opens up the conversation for there being greater forces at work in our lives than we might be aware of. We may find it to be useful to examine features of your diet and overall lifestyle. 

I have a warm and welcoming approach and often use insight oriented questioning and also incorporate mindfulness techniques and somatic awareness to help deepen self-awareness, slow down reactions and create lasting transformation.
I work with my client's goals and needs are and listen deeply to how I might be able to assist in their journey. Sometimes just the process of connecting with someone is the first part of the transformation process!
