START YOUR JOURNEY TOWARD A BETTER AND FULLER LIFE
Therapy for individuals and couples who want lasting change and more meaningful relationships.
Associate Marriage and Family Therapist, #134774
My journey of self-discovery began as I was a young mother, struggling to find my way and make sense of my life experiences. While I’d like to say I have it all figured out, the truth is that life is messy and people are complicated. Self-discovery is a long process and I’m on the road for life. I may have special training and experience, but ultimately, I’m just another human on the journey who is inspired by our potential for growth, healing, and transformation. I see myself as a compassionate and curious companion on your journey, helping explore how your life experiences impact the way you show up in your life and in your relationships and helping you find your path to wholeness.
Things to know about me:
I bring a strong mama vibe into the therapy space. I have three children and bring a lot of nurturing energy to my clients. That being said, sometimes mom needs to be firm or directive and I don't struggle to bring that kind of energy when needed.
I was a birth doula for 15 years and was deeply impacted by the profound moments of vulnerability and strength I witnessed during childbirth. I wouldn’t be the therapist I am today without the families that invited me to be part of these sacred moments.
I was diagnosed with ADHD in my mid-forties. This means you get the benefit of my hyperfocus, curiosity, and outside-of-the-box thinking.
“Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes.”
ON THE HUNT FOR SASQUATCH
I love the power of myth and archetypes to demonstrate universal human experiences. When it comes to our inner workings, I think the Sasquatch legend makes a fun metaphor for the unconscious:
There are parts of ourselves lying in the shadows. Like the Sasquatch, we may see evidence of them here and there, but ultimately they are hidden, hard to understand, and often elusive. Sometimes these elements are aspects of our personality that have been subdued to fit into our family or the broader culture, and other times they represent hurts or traumatic events that work to disrupt our lives and our relationships.
Our work in therapy will help you find the Sasquatch within, both the beautiful and the disfigured parts of yourself that need to come into the light of day. Through this endeavor, you will find healing and support to become your true authentic self, experiencing freedom and self-acceptance. With this new knowledge of yourself, you will have greater choice and intentionality in your actions and relationships.
