You and I begin our work together in the midst of living, life happening all around us. It does not stop for us, we have to make time to pause, to show up, to consider, to choose our steps, our path.
My office might be that “field” for you, a place just on the edge of right and wrong, a place we meet to listen, get a different view, share at the cross-roads of diverse experiences, reflect on your perceptions of being you.
I meet you there with the intention of a wholistic approach too healing, sharing the story of your life, and supporting your choices to crafting a healthy, full life for yourself. My office is located at The Source, a community-based oasis of healers and Michael Thomas coffee shop.
Come by for a cup of tea, let’s talk.
I offer you, my client, my wisdom from making mistakes and making hard choices, the act of showing up every day mixed together with my clinical professional skills honed over 29 years in the business sets the table to sit with you in conversation. Together considering how you are navigate living, your life, at the intersection of food, mental, spiritual, physical and social health. My practice is informed by my unique perspective as an Autistic person. Yes, I am Autistic. During our clinical work together I bring: a curiosity for who you are; a passion for research and for the truth it yields; masterful problem solving; and a trauma informed humanity. I trust the process of therapy and endeavor to maintain a safe place for our work and practice. Let’s reveals your true colors and path going forward.
