Provides telehealth services
Practicing Since: 2015
I'm a trauma specialist, with an emphasis in social justice. I work with PTSD/complex PTSD, DID, depression, anxiety, mood/emotional dysregulation, impulsivity and compulsions. I specialize in POC and LGBTQ populations. *I'm currently only accepting telehealth clients through Hilltop Clinic in Oregon City. Clients can call the clinic and request an intake, and request me at that time. There are no guarantees of placement, due to high demand at this time.
I have training in somatic and mindfulness techniques pioneered by Bessel van der Kolk and Peter Levine.
I use a trauma-informed mindfulness practice that incorporates zen and cognitive behavioral techniques. This can include sitting and walking meditations, focused object practices, and mantras.
I use a variety of experiential techniques, from visualization to expressive arts, from narrative to Gestalt, to get to move emotions in a way that words sometimes cannot.
'To the privileged, equality feels like oppression.' Oppression takes on many forms in the lives of the oppressed, from financial challenges to negative self-talk, substance use to mental health challenges. Working on eliminating systemic oppression is a focus of my life and therapeutic work with clients.
I specialize in LGBTQ populations, including trans, non gender-conforming, and poly populations. I consider it an honor to be trusted by so many in this community. I have specialized training in working with LGBTQ populations, especially trans, and continue to update my training.
I am a certified trauma specialist through PESI, and have training in working with clients with PTSD, complex PTSD, and DID. I've also been asked to speak to graduate classes as a specialist in this field. I use a variety of techniques, but begin by working through a 3 stage process that prioritizes establishing safety before processing trauma and terminating treatment.
I have experience working with a range of anxiety disorders, including Generalized Anxiety, OCD, and other ways that this can manifest. I generally work on coping skills using mindfulness and a zen focus, along with practical behavioral interventions.
I've worked extensively with depression, from mild to severe, and found that many people don't even know when that's what they're suffering from. I generally use CBT, experiential, and mindfulness practices to alleviate depression, and work with clients to find a purpose and meaning in their life, and find sources of support and happiness.
