My Ideal Client

I am especially passionate about working with young adults, the LGBTQIA+ community, adults with ADHD and/or ASD, and women of all ages regarding abuse and trauma-related healing. I believe a large part of our healing comes while improving our relationships with ourselves. This can involve work on boundaries, self-care practices, body image, executive functioning, sexuality, and spirituality.

My Approach to Helping

I use a relational approach to therapy that provides a safe space for you to learn how to reconnect with yourself and others in your life, especially after trauma or complex trauma has caused disconnection. I will typically integrate trauma-informed aspects of Internal Family Systems, body-centered techniques, and attachment theory to help you assess and heal from what has caused disconnection in your life. I am also able to facilitate ADHD and ASD screening and assessments for adults.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

Because our experiences in various communities also impact our connection to ourselves, I strive to be a culturally-sensitive, antiracist, and LGBTQIA+ inclusive therapist. As someone who is also healing from complex trauma, I understand the importance of healing in safe relationships, and I feel honored to facilitate some of that work with my clients. In my free time, I am reconnecting with my love for reading fiction after about 9 years in higher education, maintaining my island on Animal Crossing, or enjoying quality time with my partner, our cat, and friends and family.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Feminist External link

    Relational-Cultural Therapy, stemming from Feminist Theory, states that people grow in and towards relationships. It can be difficult to grow and heal outside of our important relationships. Sometimes it is even in certain relationships that we believe we cannot grow. Through this theory, I can facilitate relationship-building with the self, others, and the communities you are involved in.

  • Attachment Theory External link

    Attachment Theory is a lens through which your style of connecting with others can be seen. It is necessary to process through our connection styles in order to improve relationships to the self and others. This work can be beneficial in the beginning stages and continue through your healing process.

  • Somatic Therapy (Body Centered) External link

    Our bodies hold complete memories of everything that has happened to us and the generations that have come before us. There is so much history in our bodies that we often are not even aware of. It is through connection to the body that we can begin to heal from trauma, abuse, general unhealthy patterns, and more.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Women's Issues External link

    I have come across so many people who have opened up to me about their experiences in life and have found my passion to focus on women and the issues that arise for us to overcome. As women in our society, we are often disconnected from our own selves by abuse/harm from others, religious ideals, societal expectations, relationships, racial biases, transphobia, and so much more. It is only in reconnection with our relationship to self that I believe growth and healing can occur.

  • Adjustment Disorder External link

    Life just likes to throw us some hardballs that can be incredibly difficult to catch and/or adjust to. I believe this is especially prevalent to those in young adulthood and all those just trying to survive through a global pandemic. Adjusting to life's surprises can cause significant anxiety and depression, trauma symptoms, and general difficulty doing day-to-day activities.

  • Body Image Issues External link

    I'm particularly passionate about Health At Every Size and reconnecting with our bodies. All of us - men, women, and non-binary folx - can experience body image issues as we live in a society that highly values one type of body. We are shown socially that our bodies will never be enough. Through body image work and somatic therapy techniques, we can work to heal our image of our selves and love our bodies where they are at.
