My Ideal Client

My clients come from a wide variety of backgrounds. I have experience working with different communities and subcultures that can be marginalized. I provide a non-judgmental empathetic space to support discussing challenging and often taboo subjects, allowing individuals to address the difficult, challenging or traumatic parts of their experiences in the world.

My Approach to Helping

I draw from the relevant neuroscientific research that is emerging within the field of psychology that provides a deeper understanding of behaviors and experiences. As a Somatic (body oriented) counselor I consider the importance of your felt experiences and how they impact you. I engage the power of mindfulness, or the practice of self-awareness, which builds bridges in different parts of the brain, and allows for new possibilities in emotional patterns and access to new choices. I don’t have a one-size fits all approach to what I do. I offer support and acceptance for what each person brings to counseling and what their needs are. I consider humans not to be pieces and parts but an interconnected whole. I have a variety of tools and strategies to assist in understanding what is happening and then taking action.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that every person faces challenges and has areas in their life where they may suffer. Everyone can feel alone and isolated at times and counseling support can help reduce the feelings of isolation and provide tools for managing symptoms. I believe that individuals in marginalized communities may not only hold individual trauma but collective and historical trauma that is necessary to address.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Anxiety External link

    Anxiety can feel overwhelming and all-consuming. What if there were a better way to manage your anxiety instead of it managing you? There is. Though humans have a natural stress response, sometimes it can become so overwhelming that it becomes paralyzing. Therapy for anxiety helps you get in tune with your natural stress responses and get anxiety under control. I specialize in the treatment of anxiety and related disorders using a variety of evidence based techniques including EMDR.

  • PTSD External link

    Trauma and PTSD can impact the way you function, feel, think behave and what you believe about yourself. Symptoms of all kinds are treatable. I use a Trauma-Informed Therapy to address the psychological, emotional, relational and physical problems that past trauma can create. My approach draws from numerous sources including Neuroscience, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR. I offer many highly effective and evidence-based strategies and interventions for healing the effects of trauma.

  • Codependency External link

    Unhealthy and repeated patterns are a continual source of suffering if you don't understand how you entered into the cycle. I support clients in understanding the roots of unhealthy relationships with my training in Emotionally Focused Therapy and identify how to meet their true needs in relationships. You are capable of creating new patterns of loving and relating with others. If you were never taught how to have a healthy relationship how would you know how? You can learn.
