My belief is that people come to therapy to have an experience that is markedly different from what they encounter in their daily life. My training and experience allow me to have the tools to provide an opportunity for that different experience, whether it is getting relief from anxiety, finding grace and gratitude in the midst of grief, or gaining clarity and calm in a situation of overwhelm and confusion. We work collaboratively and creatively to uncover the root causes of your distress or dissatisfaction, and address them without re-traumatization. Our work together is safe, deep, transformative, and often spontaneously joyous.
In the field of mental health for almost 30 years, I focus on our innate resilience and neuroplasticity - our brain's incredible ability to heal and thrive regardless of what we've been through. I work with sexual trauma, grief, loss, anxiety, depression, anger, substance use, self-harm, eating disorders, LGBTQ2S+ communities, and refugees/immigrants.
I use an array of psychotherapeutic modalities such as Internal Family Systems (IFS), Solution Focused, Narrative therapy, CBT, psychodynamic and mindfulness-based, as well as drawing on Somatic approaches (Sensorimotor and Somatic Experiencing). I am also a Havening Techniques® Practitioner (www.Havening.org), a gentle trauma reprocessing technique.
