Announcement icon For the duration of the Covid-19 pandemic, all my sessions take place online, via encypted, secure video therapy.
Together, we will safely and gently process emotions that connect your past to the here & now so you can increase your capacity to improve your life, on your terms. Imagine what it would be like to discover and amplify what’s already there—an inborn wellness and inherent strength with roots that are spiritual, cultural and unconditional!! It’s such an honor to take this walk toward whole-self wellness with the people I serve.
I treat trauma, including the trauma of marginalization and abuse, PTSD, chronic stress, relationship issues, midlife issues, quarter life issues, BIPOC issues, women’s issues, co-dependency, imposter syndrome and the unique stress endured by people who are divorcing, in child custody battles or recovering from an abusive relationship.
I know it's not easy to take that step to get care, but you deserve to be accompanied on your journey to wellness by someone who deeply cares. Let’s return to the ancient science of human connection that our ancestors knew was the way to heal, grow and get momentum for transformational change.
