Some themes in my work:
Nervous System Soothing
During transitions, uncertainty, and upheaval, regulating the nervous system while learning to read the subtle emotional signals allows the body to stay connected to intuition and a sense of ease rather than being overwhelmed by constriction, fear, and shut down. In order to regulate the nervous system a sense of safety must be established to move out of a fight, flight, or freeze response. I provide a gentle container for acceptance, stability, and rooted compassion, building resilience and confidence in one's own ability to self-regulate and soothe. From this integrated perspective it becomes easier and easier to come home to the self.
We form our attachment styles, our capacity for self compassion, and our beliefs about life almost entirely before the age of 10. Luckily our brains have the capacity to re-write these beliefs and heal from generations of inherited trauma with some support. When childhood traumas stick around unaddressed, the wounded inner child continues to show up in adult life with the desire to find resolution. The inner child’s greatest desire is to find love, safety, and belonging from those who reflect the qualities and importance of their caretakers, which usually means the romantic partner/s! Without support and awareness this desire for resolve can manifest as choosing unhealthy partners, repeating cycles of harm, enmeshment, codependency, trauma bonding, a guarded heart...all huge obstacles to building healthy partnerships. When familial trauma is resolved, our ancestors, selves, and descendents are given the greatest gift.
I can help you evaluate and understand your needs and desires in relationships. This can include: clarity on attachment styles, establishing and building trust, working with sexual issues, learning effective communication, understanding parental relationship patterns, maintaining healthy boundaries with work, friends, family, and beyond. The list goes on and on!
I use a combination of Internal Family Systems (IFS) therapy, embodiment, holotropic breathwork, deep listening, and

How to decide if you qualify for sliding scale:
To make this work accessible, I offer a sliding scale option for those who could use support but don't currently have the monetary funds. I know that spending money on mental and emotional healthcare is a privilege in our current capitalistic system and in my utopian fantasy those who are currently marginilized would be met with an abundance of care, safety, belonging, showered in love and oppurtunity. I’ll leave it up to you to self asses. Please self asess based on your current financial situation, being as honest with yourself as possible. Asking questions like: would paying full price impact my basic needs, Additionally, I can connect you with practitioners I admire who may support your lived experience with more familiarity.
