In what ways do your life philosophy and treatment philosophy overlap?

Traditional psychotherapy sees clients as “patients" that are attending meetings due to a lack in ability, skill or thought process. I see everyone as a wise soul on the path to achieving wholeness, and I treat them with reverence, care and compassion. Working together becomes a co-created healing journey where they connect more deeply with their inner compass and wise self. I see every client as having "Basic goodness" at their core. This concept comes from Buddhist philosophy and refers to the inherent worth and purity of all beings. It suggests that every person has a fundamental goodness at their core, regardless of their past experiences or current behavior.

What treatment methods and tools do you utilize?

Using a Buddhist Psychology-based approach to therapy, I guide clients in discovering their authentic selves through the lens of radical self-compassion. I incorporate mindfulness awareness practices, energy healing techniques and somatic psychology into each session.

What was your path to becoming a therapist? What inspired you to choose this profession?

Growing up, I struggled daily with feeling overwhelmed by other people's thoughts and feelings. I was a very empathic and intuitive child, but I didn't have clear energetic boundaries, so I often fell into people pleasing or felt guilty for having my own needs. As a very young healer, I held the core belief that I was tasked with making sure everyone was okay, and so I took on other people's difficult energy, which also caused immense dis-ease in my body. ​ When I was teenager, I had a terrifying and equally profound spiritual experience that completely demolished my reference points about who I thought I was and wanted to be. With the help of dozens of spiritual teachers, mentors and my own guides, and the completion of two master's degree programs, I am now dedicated to helping others awaken and transform their difficult emotional and spiritual experiences in order to gain meaning, understanding and empowerment from them.

Contemplative psychotherapy is an approach to therapy that integrates Eastern contemplative practices with Western psychotherapeutic techniques. It emphasizes the cultivation of mindfulness, compassion, and awareness in the therapeutic process. This approach can help clients develop a deeper understanding of their thoughts, emotions, and behaviors, leading to greater self-awareness and emotional healing.
