Specialties

Education & Experience

Welcome to a journey of self-discovery and healing. Wherever you are on your path, I’m here to support you. Together, we’ll unveil the hidden parts of yourself, fostering understanding and authenticity. Through this process, you’ll cultivate self-compassion, uncover strengths you never knew you had, and emerge as a more genuine version of yourself. 

Therapy style

I once stumbled upon a quote that deeply resonated with my healing journey: “May all your weeds be wildflowers.” Engaging in therapy stands apart as a singular experience, a sanctuary where we unravel the aspects we might perceive as “weeds” and openly share thoughts concealed from the outside world. I view therapy as a sacred space for growth, fostering meaningful and enduring changes.

In our sessions, anticipate gentle guidance and encouragement to explore paths aligned with your values. I’m here to accompany you through moments of profound joy and pain, and all that comes between those moments. My goal is to provide a safe haven for emotions often unexpressed in the external world. My extensive experience involves assisting individuals in healing from various traumas and supporting those who identify as neurodivergent.

My therapeutic approaches center around self-compassion, rewiring ingrained beliefs, and transforming responses to daily life challenges. I offer tangible tools for integrating positive changes into your everyday existence. I am proficient in employing diverse therapeutic modalities, including Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), and attachment-based theories.

Collaboratively, our goal is to craft a life rich in meaning and connection with others. Let’s work together to build a future that resonates with significance and fulfillment.
