Provides free initial consultation
Provides telehealth services
Practicing Since: 2010
I see clients from an array of backgrounds with diversity of issues. My approach is somatic and attachment based which is helpful in treating depression, trauma and anxiety. Additionally, my approach helps clients feel a new sense of safety, wholeness and connection to themselves and others. I work with Queer, trans and non binary folks and I also work from a social justice framework and practice an intersectional style to therapy.
As a person who has a bachelor's degree in women's studies, I have a strong foundation on intersectionality and the importance of including social justice in my work.
I have extensive training in trauma-informed therapy and interventions. This may include psychoeducation (understanding how trauma works in the brain and body) as well as psychodynamic techniques and mindfulness practices.
Many client's I have worked with experience anxiety . From experiencing it in the body (symptoms) is how we usually first recognize it. I have vast training in methods to treat anxiety; including but not limited to: CBT, mindfulness and Hakomi method.
Many people seek therapy because they are struggling with some form of depression. I have strong clinical skills via my work as a crisis counselor as well as community mental health on assessing risk and coming up with a treatment plan that works for you (most importantly)! utilizing hakomi method, cbt and psychodynamic techniques depending on the needs of the individual.
