My Approach

I’ve been influenced by a variety of experiential and somatically-based approaches to therapy, including Hakomi and Somatic Experiencing.

Hakomi is a form of guided self-study that relies on the power of present emotional and somatic experience to access and study core material: the memories, images, beliefs, and emotional dispositions that shape how we experience ourselves in the world. Hakomi provides a method for becoming conscious of and exploring core material, as well as for integrating new, more nourishing experiences.

Somatic Experiencing (SE) is a short-term, naturalistic approach to the resolution and healing of post-traumatic stress reactions. SE does not promote emotional catharsis, but instead working within one’s range of resilience to facilitate the most efficient healing recovery possible. SE works predominantly with the “felt sense,” accessing physical sensations, imagery, and motor patterns, with less emphasis on cognitive and emotional processes.

My Background

I also provide counseling for couples and other relationship types. Whether partners, friends, or family members, we’re all prone to losing track of ourselves in the balancing act of relationship. You may find yourselves abandoning personal limits, flooded by negative emotions, or entangled in situations that seem beyond your control. I can help you restore broken trust, manage boundaries, and access feelings and needs that contribute to healthier interactions.

I hold a master’s degree in Counseling from Portland State University and am a Registered Intern through the Oregon Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists.
