Those who are navigating religious trauma, the impact of purity culture, and grief related to faith deconstruction and faith transitions are especially drawn to my work. I am also passionate about working with individuals who have experienced parentification, are recovering perfectionists, or folks who are neurodivergent and navigating spaces and systems that aren't designed for them.
I practice EMDR therapy and integrate it into sessions with clients who are seeking relief from distressing or traumatic experiences, and desiring to replace old core beliefs that are no longer serving them.
I offer a relational approach which means showing up fully as both a clinician and as a human so that my clients can learn to do the same in the therapy room and outside in all their relationships and connections.
I integrate a psychodynamic approach—helping my clients explore how unconscious thoughts and past experiences may be impacting them in the present. Together, we'll explore patterns in thoughts and behaviors, often focusing on early life experiences and relationships to understand and address present concerns or stressors.
I have lived experience related to healing from religious trauma and the impact of purity culture, the grief of faith deconstruction, and the relational dynamics that go along with a significant faith transition. Additionally, I have sought out additional training to support my work with folks who are interested in navigating religious trauma, faith deconstruction, or simply wanting more depth in their spiritual life.
I have worked with ADHDers and AuDHers and I am passionate about working with folks who are seeking a neurodiversity-affirming therapist. My goal is to empower my clients to attune to their strengths and to gain tools for areas that feel more challenging—that work with their own way of thinking and being.
Grief is a complex emotional journey—a confrontation of loss in all of it's forms. Although we may tend to associate grief with a death loss, grief is an expansive term for a diverse range of losses—whether it's a transition to a new city, a loss of a friendship, a faith transition, ora late diagnosis of autism or ADHD in adulthood. Every loss deserves to be acknowledged and held with care and support.
