Are you healing from an abusive relationship or other system of control? Do you find yourself googling "narcissistic abuse" "coercive control?" or "high-control group"? Are you struggling with a narcissistic parent, partner, boss, or exploitative spiritual group? Have you felt powerless, unable to move forward? If you're trying to create more joy, wellness, and balance, we can work together to help you create safe boundaries and move into healthier relationships...first with yourself.
Since 2014 I have been a Level II EMDR practitioner trained by EMDRIA, Francine Shapiro's organization. I've done hundreds of EMDR sessions with my clients, most of whom see clear benefit. EMDR treatment works well for those who have distinct and specific memory of a traumatic event or events that continue to interfere with their lives, and who are relatively stable in terms of mood disorders.
Theoretically I favor an object relations approach as popularized by psychotherapists Melanie Klein, Anna Freud, Donald Winicott, and Heinz Kohut. I've also been highly influenced by existentialist psychiatrists Irvin Yalom and Viktor Frankl.
I practice third-wave CBT, which is a more modern, mindfulness-based form of CBT. In CBT we address long-standing automatic negative thoughts that stem from core beliefs we may need to re-tool. It is based on the theory that changing your thinking changes your feelings, which in turn adjusts behavior. It involves task and homework.
If you are part of a historically oppressed group or groups and this is significantly affecting your mental health and wellness, we can identify and work on strategies to balance your life. I approach these issues from an intersectional lense.
I offer safety and empowerment counseling to survivors or current victims of domestic violence, interfamilial abuse, intimate partner abuse, psychological, spiritual (religions or cults) and narcissistic abuse. Please note that I do not treat offenders.
In my private practice I treat children/adolescents from the age of 12 and up. Common issues I have experience treating are mood disorders, ADHD, adjustment issues, victims of bullying, cutting, family issues, peer problems, divorce adjustment, and LGBTQIA2+ affirmative therapy.
I work with couples in any stage of commitment, whether you are dating, contemplating longterm commitment or marriage, need separation counseling for the wellbeing of children, or are in polyamorous relationships.
If you have noticed a pattern of codependency in your relationships (family, work, intimate partners) and/or have experienced harm from relationships with people who suffer from addictions or personality disorders, I can help you empower yourself to make more self-caring choices.
