Amphora /am.fo.ra/ n. a vase with two elongated handles, used in ancient times to store and transport food and liquids such as wine, olives, cereal, and oil. Its name is derived from the Greek word "amphoreus", meaning ‘carried on both sides.’ The vessels were designed to enable them to be carried by one or two people with ease.
As we travel through life, we each hold thoughts, feelings, memories, and experiences within ourselves - a living container of knowledge and sensations. This vessel can hold the deeply nourishing parts of life that keep us moving forward. However, at times we may become heavy with worries, stress, or other hardships. These can weigh us down and make the road ahead seem long and difficult.
Whether you're stuck on the "what ifs" of life and are holding onto stress; battling feelings of sadness, hopelessness, mood swings, or thoughts of "I'm not good enough"; hoping to work through old wounds and traumas; or if you simply need someone to listen, I am here to walk with you and carry some of that weight. Together we will slowly pour out whatever may be holding you back and make room for all the nourishing parts of life you deserve.

Owner and Therapist
I strive to provide a compassionate and non-judgmental environment of encouragement and support and believe that therapy is not "one-size-fits-all". You deserve someone who listens to and supports who you are, and is focused on your unique needs and experiences. I am rooted in the belief that all people can benefit from therapy and that staying mentally healthy is a lifelong process.
