My Approach to Helping

I work from a client-centered and integrative foundation. This means that I consider my clients' unique needs, experiences, and situations when developing our working relationship. I work from a place of deep empathy, understanding, intuition, and humor; I also draw from an extensive array of counseling theories and tools to create a relevant and productive therapeutic environment for personal growth and positive change. As a therapist I work primarily from an integrated trauma-informed, narrative, anti-oppressive, feminist framework. I also include EMDR, interpersonal neurobiology, creative expression, ecotherapies, and skills- and mindfulness-based approaches in my work with clients.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My decision to become a therapist was informed by many things: studying human stories through the lens of creative writing and narrative structure, working with refugee families as an AmeriCorps volunteer, supporting teens at a therapeutic boarding school in the Sapphire Mountains of Montana, and my own lifelong journey of trauma recovery, growth, and healing.I believe that mental, emotional, and spiritual health and wellbeing are a right and not a privilege. In the rest of my life I enjoy spending time in nature, creating art, growing plants, loving other humans and animals, exploring my meditation and mindfulness practice, and challenging myself to live in a constant state of growth and curiosity. I strive to embody creativity, dedication, and passion in both my daily life and my work as a therapist.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • EMDR External link

    EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) can be used alone or integrated with other therapies to treat trauma, reduce distress, and provide significant psychological and somatic relief for clients. I am EMDR Certified and consider EMDR to be an incredibly effective and powerful tool for healing. For more information go to: http://www.emdria.org/

  • Relational  External link

    A relational approach in therapy highlights the importance of how we relate -- to others, to ourselves, and to our world -- to our sense of overall wellbeing and happiness. I prioritize our therapeutic relationship in order to provide you with a safe space to explore changes within yourself and practice new ways of connecting with others and the world.

  • Narrative  External link

    Narrative therapy examines the ways we are influenced by the stories we tell about our selves and our lives. When we explore these narratives and our ability to retell our stories in new ways we realize a powerful opportunity for healing. I have found narrative therapy to be an incredibly effective therapeutic tool -- fun, creative, and transformative.
