Is it hard for you to connect with the people you care about? Or even to connect with yourself? I get it. It's so hard to feel disconnected or uncertain. And it can be scary to ask for help. I believe in your bravery, your resilience, and your innate wisdom. My mission is to foster your ability to see those things for yourself and to support you as you unfold into the truest, most connected version of yourself.
Our earliest experiences with caregivers shape what we expect from the world, how we enter into relationships, and how we make sense of ourselves. By exploring and processing early attachment experiences—and forming reparative, adult attachment experiences—we can facilitate healing and growth.
EMDR is an evidence-based treatment for the anxiety associated with historical trauma. By reprocessing traumatic memories in a supportive relationship, EMDR can help unlock the stored trauma in your body and mind.
I have training and experience working with LGBTQ+ community and so many of my clients report that therapist have insisted on centering their queer identity to the exclusion of the rest of their humanity...while our queerness is a gift (that can come with challenges), I recognize in my work that it is just a part of who you are and choose work with ALL of you towards your goals and healing.
I am trained in trauma-informed care, which recognizes the ways in which trauma lives in your mind, your body, and your perception of your surroundings—and to view it as a natural response to overwhelming events. Through compassionate, grounded care, I will assist you in developing skills and insights to help you heal.
It's natural to worry. It's when our worries get in the way of the life we want that it becomes a problem. I will work with you to develop skills to manage your anxiety & stress and to create experiences that support you in disrupting the ways your mind is getting in your way.
