Philosophy of Care
I am currently not accepting new clients, however I am still able to meet with new patients for their initial intake appointment to ensure that they are connected to a therapist who will best meet their needs. I believe in the spirit of collective wisdom and take a team-oriented approach to reaching a client’s therapeutic and life goals. My goal as a therapist is to embody light, magic, wisdom, laughter, and connection, helping people improve their ability to navigate life's challenges. I am fiercely committed to restoring essential connections in our relationships with one another, nature, food, source, and the inter-connected world. In today’s changing environment, we are often disconnected and fragmented; this can be seen and felt on macro and micro levels, contributing to high levels of stress and anxiety. One of my primary goals is learning how to achieve optimal performance in personal, relational, and professional areas of one’s life. This is accomplished through active engagement and participation for both the therapist and client through practices that will increase awareness, consciousness, and connection.
