I work with individuals and couples who are looking for relief from distress or searching for clarity amidst confusion. This distress and confusion may be in relationship with yourself, with others, or with the world you find yourself in. I endeavor to meet you where you are to create a healing relationship with you. Together we will make a safe space for you to have new experiences of trust, ease, belonging, and authentic connection.
AEDP recognizes that relational traumas occur when we are isolated in our experience in the face of overwhelming emotions. We become contracted around this traumatic experience, unable to move forward. Healing occurs in undoing the aloneness, giving space to gently re-orient the contraction toward our natural curiosity and creativity. In working together, we can rebuild your capacity to be with your emotions, out of survival mode, and into your natural state of flourishing.
Grief is complex, and each person has their own unique experience. Sometimes we collect our losses and do not recognize our deep need to grieve. Sometimes our loss is unrecognized by others. The dominant American culture often does not allow much space or permission to grieve. A sudden or unexpected loss can lead to traumatic grief, kicking in our body's survival mechanisms. Wherever you find yourself in the process, I can help you navigate to a place that feels workable and connected.
