My Specialties

Highly Sensitive People

I specialize in helping Highly Sensitive People (HSPs) move from feeling overwhelmed, burnt out and misunderstood to feeling confident, and regulated.

Being highly sensitive can be a gift, however possessing this trait can make life difficult. 

Noticing and absorbing so much subtlety can easily lead to over-stimulation and overwhelm. Society tends to see sensitivity as a weakness (even though it truly is a strength). Sensitive people are often mischaracterized and misunderstood. I will help you shift any negative core beliefs you may have around this.

As a highly sensitive person myself,  I can relate to your lived experience, and support you with your challenges and help you find meaning and peace in your life.

Harm Reduction & Integration

Are you curious about the emerging field of psychedelic medicines? Have you had your own experience and need someone to support you in integrating it? This is at the heart of harm reduction and integration therapy.

 

I support those looking for integration support and those looking to prepare to use them for healing purposes. Maybe you're traveling abroad to participate in a ceremony and you want to maximize the benefits of the medicines by preparing intentions and setting the right stage for yourself. This will set you up for best possible experience and for a soft landing when you return.

Neurodiversity

Neurodiversity speaks to the variation in neurological functioning in humans. The neurodiversity movement urges us to recognize neural and biological differences to understand that not every brain works the same. There are different ways of perceiving the world, capacities to reason and think critically, and sensitivities to environmental stimuli.

I support clients with ADHD, ASD, and other sensory processing issues. I offer a nonjudgmental, person-centered, affirming therapy, including psycho-education, skills, advocacy, and more.

Attachment & Trauma

Trauma can be acute, chronic or complex. Acute trauma results from a single incident. Chronic trauma is repeated and prolonged such as domestic violence, neglect or abuse. These types of developmental traumas can lead to attachment issues down the road.

We will work on reducing any symptoms of PTSD associated with your trauma, identifying triggers, and working to calm your nervous system down.

As a Certified Clinical Trauma Specialist, I have experience in working with many clients with complex trauma and PTSD. I help you identify your attachment needs and work on building more safety and security in your life.
