I am currently offering Virtual group therapy, for those who have a small group of friends wanting to process the impact of the Pandemic on their lives. Limit 3 per group, $200/60-Minutes

I have a BA in Philosophy (2004), an MA in Counseling (2015), and am a 200-hour Registered Yoga Teacher with the Yoga Alliance (2013). I have seen 10-15 clients per week over the past two years as a Counseling Intern. The majority of my experience has been in the treatment of anxiety, depression, spiritual issues, and unprocessed trauma. I specialize in body-based counseling, which involves teaching body awareness, breath work, and other mindfulness skills. I also specialize in integrating spirituality (one's sense of connection to something bigger than oneself and the related quest for meaning) in counseling . I encourage clients to explore the integral connection between their thoughts, emotions and physical body; as well as how each of these interact with their worldview and sense of purpose.

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Eclectic External link

    In addition to approaching counseling from a mindfulness/body-based perspective, I incorporate various psychological theories in my work with clients: Jungian, Gestalt, Psychodynamic, and Existential. I use the following interventions/modalities depending on client challenges & needs: Narrative therapy, Sandtray therapy, Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • Spirituality External link

    I have experience helping clients sort through spiritual baggage ranging from damage done by religious institutions/people to exploring a sense of /or desire for connection to God, self, & the rest of creation. I hold non-judgmental space to explore your worldview: what you believe about the way the world works, the nature of God & how you desire to connect with the divine/your purpose in life.

  • PTSD External link

    I have experience helping clients reduce and manage symptoms of PTSD, including recurring nightmares. I use a combination of talk therapy, mindfulness/body-based therapy, and Sandtray therapy. These are effective treatment modalities for PTSD because of the weight and breadth of physical symptoms related to the initial traumatic experience and daily triggering experiences.

  • Panic External link

    I am experienced in helping clients reduce the symptoms of panic and empowering you with the skills/tools to prevent panic attacks. What has worked really well: Using a combination of Psychoeducation, Cognitive Therapy, Mindfulness, and Body-Based counseling to--- identify triggers/ physical symptoms; and develop the self-awareness/understanding/breath necessary to calm your nervous system.

  • Anxiety External link

    I have experience helping clients reduce and manage symptoms of anxiety. I use mindfulness techniques, teach body-awareness skills, and encourage the exploration of personal sense of meaning/purpose/direction to treat anxiety. I also offer individualized therapeutic Yoga sessions to compliment our work in counseling, empowering you with skills to calm your mind & body on a daily basis.

  • Depression External link

    I have experience helping clients reduce and manage symptoms of depression without medication. What has worked very well in the past: Mindfulness-Based Cognitive Therapy and lifestyle coaching, referrals for acupuncture and massage, teaching & practicing mindfulness skills, exploring personal meaning/purpose; and individualized therapeutic Yoga sessions to compliment our work in counseling.
