My Ideal Client

If you’ve already started your journey of self-discovery and growth, maybe you’ve even been in therapy a while, but are now feeling stymied by old trauma, that’s where I’d love to come in. While staying connected with each other and with a sense of curiosity and creativity, my clients and I go on an inner-adventure to discover parts of themselves that need attention and healing, to foster forward movement.

My Approach to Helping

Sometimes referred to as intrapsychic entities or sub-personalities, we have an inner community of parts that many of us reference without even realizing it (“I really want to stay in, but a part of me wants to socialize.”). Each part of us has its own set of character traits and perceptions of the world (when 2 or more parts have perceptions that don’t align, this is often the source of inner-conflict). Some parts of us can become over/under developed due to trauma and attachment wounding— these are the parts that will benefit from this healing work. Often we can trace the development of these parts to specific memories (they might even feel trapped in that memory!) which is where EMDR can be a helpful tool in our process.

My Values as a Therapist

I understand that systemic oppression adds daily trauma to our lives- counseling shouldn’t add to that trauma, but it often does. You have the right to a counselor who is not defensive and who does not demand that you educate them. I will continuously strive to honor and maintain a sacred space for you in counseling through a commitment to social justice, cultural humility and honest self-reflection. I am also committed to your sense of safety by fostering a culture of consent in therapy. This means that I will continuously check in with you to ensure we are moving at a pace you are comfortable with.
