How I help you find healing
GUIDED PRACTICE FOR HEALING
For the past ten years, I’ve worked as a master’s level social worker to aid clients experiencing a myriad of challenges, both physical and emotional. At times, this work has looked like offering support to a child going through emotional and familial tumult; at others, compassionately guiding an immigrant woman who is coping with a cancer diagnosis. I’ve offered care and advising in schools, hospitals, and communities as an agent of change—and each case has required a unique, patient, and gentle approach. I love this work.
I am proud to identify myself an HSP (Highly Sensitive Person; click for more information on Dr. Elaine Aron's work) and empath. I work in two directions, sometimes at once: limbic system healing consultation and guidance, as well as healthcare navigation/advocacy and support for clients in need. My extensive experience in the healthcare world as both a social worker and insurance specialist, along with my intimate knowledge of the larger treatment options for folks with chronic illness lends us an extra hand as we navigate your healthcare questions and challenges together. All of my work is done beginning with where you are in the present moment. We begin where you are.
My Limbic System Healing practice is not operating as individual psychotherapy, presently. In the future, however, I will accumulate hours towards my Licensed Clinical Social Worker designation in the state of Oregon, and will be supervised under licensed practitioners in that distinct work outside of this practice. If you are interested in individual therapy with me, we can discuss this possibility for the future.
Through our collaborative journey, we look to find healing.
I WELCOME ALL
To quote the inspirational campaign by OKO Gallery, I wish to explicitly state: "I welcome: all races, all religions, all countries of origin, all sexual orientations, all genders, all abilities. I stand with you. You are safe here."
Regardless of your beliefs, all of our sessions will unfold in a space of tranquility and protection. That means only discussing the things you’re comfortable discussing, engaging in the practices you’re comfortable engaging in, and always listening for what your heart, mind, and body need most.
