I work with adults who are struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, grief/loss, and infertility, and those who are just finding life challenging at the moment and need someone to talk to. Life feels hard for a lot of folks right now and finding someone to connect to who can provide a different perspective or who can listen and be in it with you can make all the difference. All genders, sexual orientations, gender expression, and relationship types welcome!
I believe that everyone has the right to be who they are in the world, as they grow and learn. I practice an unconditional positive regard for my clients, even as they struggle with the challenges of being human. This lens frames my whole practice and no matter what type of intervention or modality I'm using, a humanistic approach drives my work with clients.
I think of it as integrative rather than eclectic. Some clients need to vent, some want to make small changes, and some want to make big changes. I meet my clients where they are. I can incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy, narrative therapy, EMDR, polyvagal theory and neurobiology, IFS, existential therapy, emotionally focused, mindfulness, and person-centered therapy into my practice, depending on what I feel would be most useful for the client.
I have 20 years' experience in human resources and career coaching and I use this to help my clients who are struggling to find a job or a job that's the right fit. I work with clients using assessments when needed and can help with reviewing or building a resume, cover letter, LinkedIn profile and can assist with interview preparation and salary negotiation when needed. I can help clients explore new potential careers for themselves and what it would take to make a change.
My training has led me to work with clients with anxiety and to develop treatments and interventions specifically for anxiety.
I have seen clients and received training specific to depression, including interventions related to behavioral activation for those clients who are below the line of functioning due to depression.
I work with many folks who have experienced past trauma and we work together to build a sense of safety as they discover who they are underneath their past. I largely employ EMDR and polyvagal theory as I help folks work through trauma.
I have had clients suffering from grief and have successfully treated them and have resources available to them.
I have personal experience of infertility and am reading everything I can and meeting with other therapists who specialize in this.
