Description

I welcome working with different experiences however big or small they may feel. Whether that be stress/burnout, depression, anxiety, student life, a life transition, relationships with others, relationship with self, trauma, something in the past, etc. In order to be supportive of this process I access different approaches, with my main lenses being person-centered, relational/psychodynamic and emotion-focused, within a trauma-informed, strengths-based framework.

Summary

There are times when life gets hard, messy or shaken up, leaving us feeling overwhelmed, or lost reckoning with somethings we didn’t expect to. There are also times when we simply get that nagging feeling that there’s something we want to address, and maybe start to feel curious about what healing can be for us. Whether you’re looking to address something specific in the present, want to explore painful experiences in the past, want to gain perspective and understanding, or are looking for a supportive space (or a mix of all of that!); I hope we can co-create a space that's supportive to you.
