About Me

Life is certainly a journey, and mine has been no exception.

I have been walking the healing path for many years, finding the support I needed to grow with each step. Through this, I've discovered various types of therapy, yoga, meditation, dance, music, and more. My greatest support, however, was finding connections which provided a healthy container to heal.

The healing journey can be a lonely one. I journeyed a long time before finding the right connections to support me. That is why I feel called and honored to often be the first support for people on their own healing journeys.

What I offer people is my presence. I’m very intuitive and work with emotional attunement, feeling and understanding how others are feeling both emotionally and somatically.

I can use these skills to help individuals reconnect with their feelings, in a safe way. Many people are disconnected from their bodies and emotions, so being able to feel these things in myself allows me to be able to help others in navigating them within themselves.

I especially enjoy connecting people to their wild, sometimes scary, rejected or shadow parts. Things like anger, fear, and sadness can sometimes be overwhelming, especially if we have learned that these aspects are not safe to feel or express.


I personally know the courage it takes to investigate one's self and to make deep, lasting change. This gives me an incredible amount of respect, care, and patience for the people I work with.

Having a Bachelor's degree in Psychology as well as a Master's in Psychological Counseling provides a solid base for me to accompany others in a therapeutic setting, while additional training in Somatic Experiencing,  Attachment Theory, Self-Compassion, Mindfulness, and others have allowed me to deepen my work.

I am experienced in working with people of diverse cultures, sexual orientations, gender identities and life experiences. I am American, speak English & French fluently, and have been living abroad since 2011.
