*Creative Coaching for Sensitive Souls*
“What I am is good enough, if I would only be it openly.”
~Carl R. Rogers
Life can be tough. It can be frustrating. Dark. Messy. It can often look like our things are falling apart before they come together. And we can be so hard ourselves throughout it all.
If you’re reading this, maybe you’re feeling exhausted. Maybe your thoughts race and pulse like anxious storm clouds. Maybe you feel broken or unworthy. Maybe tears roll down your cheeks and your heart just plain hurts.
Maybe you yearn to feel creative and alive again. Maybe your sensitivity feels like more of a curse than a gift.
I’ve been there. It’s not easy, that’s for sure—but I believe our tough times can encourage us dive into our incredible depths and emerge with precious treasures.
I believe as humans, we have this amazing ability to transform. To bloom in the most unexpected ways.
As a sensitive soul who has experienced some difficult traumas and losses, life has often felt very overwhelming to me. It used to seem like a roller-coaster, where my emotions were a terrifying ocean that was too vast to even dip a toe in. Panic and anxiety were regular characters in my life, fatigue and sadness trailed behind me every day.
Through years of work with a sweet and skilled therapist, I have come to see the immense power in someone holding space for us to heal ourselves.
Because we don’t need to be fixed.
In learning who we are, in daring to know ourselves more deeply—we see that the things we feared inside us are not actually so scary after all.
Our eyes soften towards ourselves. We begin explore our depths with joy, rather than worrying about drowning in them.
We let ourselves feel, because as sensitive beings—that’s what we were born to do.
Trauma-informed practices, Embodiment & Creativity are at the core of what I offer.
I am dedicated to creating a safe space for our work together.
I know that healing and change can be tough and tender, so I invite you to set the pace.
I see us as equals: two human beings.
I believe you are the expert on you—and together, we can dive in and gently untangle that which feels messy, complicated, impossible, stuck, or frustrating in your life.
I welcome laughter, tears, anger, sorrow, joy and all that you may be feeling to join us in session.
My approach is gentle and trauma-informed, with an understanding of how past pain can affect our nervous systems.
I also focus on embodiment—not just changing things in our minds, but truly embodying these changes to carry them forward in our lives.
By inviting ourselves to notice our sensations and live more fully in our bodies, we begin to restore trust in our own resiliency and wisdom.
This can feel so luscious—like coming home.
My favorite tools are somatic exercises, grounding, meditation, art, writing, and breathing practices. I also appreciate more traditional counseling approaches that emphasize step by step problem-solving and motivation.
To me, healing is inherently spiritual and fleshy-real. It’s magic and grit, both.

I am passionate about supporting you and bringing my whole heart to our work.
I believe in you.
Your sessions are your time.
I don’t do much advice-giving. Instead, I wish for you to feel seen and heard, as you are, right now. And in this, you can connect with your own wisdom, answers, needs, values, and soul.
I believe you are resilient and strong. My deepest aim is for sessions to feel empowering to you!
Watching clients learn to listen to their own wise, beautiful hearts, make important changes, empowering choices, and ground into the beauty they are—well, this regularly moves me to tears.
Sessions typically last 75 minutes. Initial sessions are usually around 90 minutes.
1 session: $75

4 sessions: $250
8 sessions: $500
