Safe Place for Recovery
My practice focuses on creating a safe space to explore recovery and healing from Anxiety, Depression, Trauma and Eating Disorders. My hope is that developing a trusting therapeutic relationship will lead my clients to feel empowered, safe and secure and be able to learn to soothe and regulate their own emotions by becoming more mindfully aware in their day to day lives. Hopefully, this will result in better relationships with others, self and a greater sense of happiness.
We inherit stories about ourselves all the time. From our family of origin to what our culture expects from us and it is imperative that we learn to tell our own stories. Let's develop a new language to enhance your understanding of your identity, needs and how to navigate your life in ways that serve you.
I use an Attachment lens to understand how clients came to use behaviors that no longer serve them, but were likely adaptive at some point. I also use strategies such as Trauma-focused CBT, Mindful Self-Compassion, Meditation and Shame Resilience tools to guide you towards new behaviors for a new sense of calm regulation and to increase your mindful awareness. These tools can lead to less maladaptive symptoms.
Client's can expect their first session to include telling me a little bit about their life and what made them curious about therapy. If client's aren't sure about the process or if this is a good fit, we can plan for a free 10 min. phone consultation.
Whatever you’re struggling with, I’m here to help you start to feel more at ease. Contact me to find out more.
Journey of a Therapist
I have been honing my skills as a therapist since 2010. I began my journey toward this profession in Seattle, WA, where I was lucky enough to work with many different people, organizations and presenting issues. After becoming a mother for the first time, my family and I decided it was time for a change and made the move to Ann Arbor, MI. I have been fortunate to have worked with many amazing people and be apart of their journey of life. Experiencing a lot of hardship in my own life, I know it is not easy to get through, but I know that it is worth it and that is what drives me.
“When I see people stand fully in their truth, or when I see someone fall down, get back up, and say, ‘Damn. That really hurt, but this is important to me and I’m going in again’—my gut reaction is, ‘What a badass.’”
