I am here to listen to your story to gently help you sort through what might feel like a big overwhelming pile of mess, whether from unwanted emotions, too much stress, unresolved interpersonal traumas, or a nagging sense of dissatisfaction with life and just feeling stuck. Clients who seek me out for therapy are often high achievers in their work and/or academic pursuits, and want to work through the source of these symptoms to improve their emotional and mental well-being on a deeper level.
I practice Integrative Counseling by applying the Eastern principles of Ayurvedic Psychology in psychodynamic psychotherapy to assess and treat underlying mental and emotional imbalances that interfere with the process of digesting and integrating life experiences. I also draw from other approaches, including Control Mastery Theory, neurobiology, and Psychoneuroimmunology (PNI).
As an Ayurvedic Practitioner, I use a holistic style of assessment and treatment that acknowledges the importance of integrating body, mind, and spirit. This includes understanding how your unique physical and mental constitutions interact with the specific environmental and relational contexts in your life.
I have been studying and applying psychodynamic principals in my clinical work since 2011. I also completed 2.5 years of clinical internship training with a supervisor trained in Control Mastery Theory, an integrated cross-theoretical cognitive-psychodynamic-relational theory.
Using the principles of Ayurvedic psychology can assist in maintaining mental and emotional balance and well-being through understanding your unique psychological constitution in the context of your environment, as well as strengthening your ability to digest and integrate your life experiences.
As an Ayurvedic practitioner, I have extensive knowledge of the mind-body connection. I can help you identify potential mental and emotional sources that may be contributing to your physical symptoms, including functional somatic symptoms. I also have a special interest in the psychosocial factors that are affected by living with gastrointestinal disorders, such as IBS and SIBO.
I have a deep understanding of the impact of stress and trauma on mental/emotional well-being. I have studied various trauma-based theories, including neurobiology, Control Mastery Theory and the work of Pete Walker. I have a special interest complex trauma, a form of prolonged/cumulative trauma that develops within interpersonal relationships, often associated with adverse childhood experiences.
