"Little by little, one travels far."
Hello. First of all, thank you for taking the first step in caring for your mental health. I would be honored to walk alongside you in your personal journey. Seeking therapy can be stressful in itself, and I understand forming a trusting relationship in a safe space is one essential part of therapy. I value collaboration and finding strengths in your personal story. Deepening the understanding of our self concept and how we have known the world invites the opportunity to explore new attitudes moving forward in life events and relationships.
I passionately believe in the mind-body connection. Integrating somatic approaches along with cognitive talk therapy can be a key in alleviating depressive or anxious symptoms and processing through past trauma. Bringing somatic approaches into the therapy room may look like movement, yoga poses, breath-work or mindfulness. These tools can also be helpful as coping skills to cultivate calmness day-to-day.
