Are you feeling stuck, overwhelmed with how to create the change you desire, feeling trapped by harmful patterns, worn down by the environmental or internal stressors that feel relentless, and care about your impact on this world? Do you want to feel relief, deeper connection, confidence, and profound shifts so that you can actualize your potential? Your not alone in your grappling with shame, anxiety, and overwhelm. The change you desire is possible, lets work towards it together.
I pull from many modalities, theories and practices to create an individualized and holistic approach. Each person and situation is different. By using an individualized approach we can address many levels of functioning and work towards better integration and sustainability of the change we desire.
Connecting the mind, body and spirit can be essential in the healing and growth process. I utilize many somatic approaches in order to support better integration of the change we are trying to create. This can look very different and is individualized for the person and situation.
I have years of experience in working with intensive situations to create efficient stabilization. I am used to working with urgency and tight timelines to achieve results that are outcome focused.
Unlearning harmful internalized patterns relearning different patterns is one of the most important tasks one can pursue to create transformation for ourselves and our world. I have worked for years with communities actively harmed by systems of oppression and am actively involved in personal and community development for healing and changing these systems. I work primarily with those socialized as white to support the lifelong work of unpacking how we perpetuate the harm caused to us by this.
Most of my experience as a therapist has been supporting people in active trauma, complex trauma, PTSD, and confronting historical, generational, and cultural trauma. I am experienced in supporting adults and adolescents on their journey to heal. I have many hours of continuing education in trauma specific treatment, and always practice with a trauma responsive lens.
I have many years of experience working with youth and families in crisis, experiencing significant mental heath struggles, who are often experiencing system harm. I have worked with many youth who were hesitant about therapy, or have had negative experiences in the past. I am familiar with the unique challenges youth face and the unique services they deserve to support their healing and growth.
Most of my experience is working with people in crisis and/or experiencing significant mental health systems. I am very familiar with working with people experiencing new or chronic suicidal ideation. I have training and experience around prevention, saftey planning, DBT, and other modalities used to address suicidal ideation.
I have experience and training in working with adolescents and adults to improve their relationships. Whether it is your partner(s), friend, parent...ect I help people deepen their connection, communication, navigate conflict, and understanding of themselves and others.
