My Ideal Client

**I am currently only accepting children / family and couples who need support. I work best with couples and families who are interested in building connection to and awareness of their bodies, interested in understanding the wounds behind the patterns of negative relationship cycles, and wanting to build healthier and more secure attachment between themselves and their loved ones. And of course, I adore working with my dear LGBTQIA+ community.

My Approach to Helping

My therapeutic approach is organized by a belief that our bodies hold the secrets of our wounds as well as the intrinsic wisdom to heal them. At this site of embodiment, profound transformation naturally occurs: of wounding into self-knowing, of constriction into aliveness, of pain into resource. I practice trauma-informed, mindfulness-based and attachment-focused somatic therapy which invites you to slow way down & bring curious attention to the fabric of your inner world. Practicing non-judgmental attention to your moment-to-moment experience within the context of a safe and supportive relationship allows us to collaboratively study how your particular system organizes experience & to become aware of the patterns in operation & their origins. Throughout this map-making process, the body will organically show us what it needs in order to process and repair places of pain and stuckness. With kiddos, I use sand tray and expressive arts therapies, + family sessions.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I work from a systems perspective that understands our individual self as being situated within & impacted by a nest of wider systems - generational, familial, societal, & global. These contexts - many of which have taken on oppressive qualities via the vehicles of settler colonialism, racism, cis-hetero patriarchy, & late-capitalism - impact us profoundly and teach us something about who we are, imprinting our brains and our bodies, shaping us in often deeply unconscious ways. When we slow down and bring mindful, non-judgemental awareness to our here-and-now experience, subconscious patterns begin to reveal themselves, giving us the possibility to cultivate understanding, nourishment, resilience, and ultimately, transformation.
