My Approach to Helping

I integrate mindful, experiential techniques into my work from attachment therapy, EMDR, and Hakomi. I believe all people come into the world with potential to be their best, authentic selves. We then have experiences from which we develop beliefs about the world and strategies for how to navigate through it. These become a template for living our lives and we often apply them to situations and relationships where they don't work. Together, we will work to reveal deeply held beliefs that may be blocking you. In my view, these beliefs solidified in response to emotional wounding in childhood, or to trauma. In a safe environment, I will provide support, empathy, and understanding. Our relationship can be a foundation for safe exploration and evolution. Together, we may be able to fill in missing experiences or reprocess traumas that have formed limiting beliefs. With experience and support, you can reset your patterns and experience more fulfilling ways of interacting with the world.

Why I am a Good Fit for You

I earned an M.S from Portland State University, where I focused on marital, couples and family therapy. I have had professional training in the Hakomi Method, RC-S, and Attachment from M.E.T.A., where I also completed a year-long internship. I have completed full basic training in EMDR, and Flash Technique, and am currently training in Attachment Focused EMDR. I also have training in grief counseling from The Dougy Center for Grieving Children and Families, where I was a volunteer facilitator. Before this, I earned a B.A. in English-Theatre from Barnard College and an M.F.A from the Yale School of Drama. I am a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC).

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Personal Growth External link

    I believe everyone can benefit from therapy. Self-study can illuminate patterns of behavior and thinking that have been holding you back from a more satisfying life. I believe that you can transform the beliefs that have limited your internal experience and your relationships and you can learn more fulfilling ways of interacting with the world.

  • LGBTQ Issues External link

    I have helped younger and older queer couples and individuals. I welcome people with any gender or sexual identity and expression. I am completely affirming of LGBTQIA+ individuals and couples. You are safe with me.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I focused on relationship issues in my Master's degree in Marriage, Couple, and Family Counseling. I love working with people at all stages of relationships; pre-commitment, during parenting, or in high conflict times. I am happy to work with you on navigating communication, sexual issues, infidelity, or exploring the future of your relationship. I work with all kinds of relationships.

  • PTSD External link

    Your feeling of safety is paramount. We will move at a pace that is right for you to first find safety, and then reprocess traumatic memories that are affecting your life. I am fully basic trained in EMDR and am training in Attachment Focused EMDR. Make an appointment for a consultation to see if we are a good fit and to learn more about how we can find relief for you.
