Clinical Supervisor

 

Have you achieved success in your life, only to find that you feel resentful and burnt out? I am passionate about supporting high achievers and perfectionists in finding a sense of ease and balance in their lives. My clients say that I am both fun to work with and provide a truly safe, grounded space for self-discovery. My approach is casual and compassionate, while also being wholly attuned to my client's goals. In our work together, I will utilize a combination of present-focused skills and insight-building questions to guide you in finding your truth. This allows you to skillfully manage your feelings, make choices that align with your values, and find comfort in whatever struggles you encounter.

The habitual stress associated with being a powerful go-getter can also lead to health problems.

I enjoy blending mind, body, and spiritual healing modalities to help clients achieve wellness at all levels. if your physical health problems are not stress-related, my holistic style can help you build resilience in the face of chronic pain, illness, or disability. Having been raised in a small California town, I bring the calm of the wide-open spaces to our hectic urban landscape. Whether you’re looking for support for yourself or a teen in your family, I look forward to hearing from you!
