In the words of my hero, Mr. Rogers, I like you just the way you are. As an autistic therapist, I know what it's like to feel like the rest of the world is in a group text that you somehow missed. It's very important to me that you can bring your whole self to therapy - stims, interests, communication style and all. I'm a very collaborative therapist with an informal style, so I want to work together with you to make therapy accessible and affirming.
I specialize in attachment and trauma, including religious trauma, for neurodivergent teens and adults. I utilize mindfulness/body-based approaches such as Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and EMDR. I utilize an attachment lens, focusing on how we connect with others as well as how we feel inside of ourselves.
It’s hard to reach out for help, and for autistic folks it can be scary if we don’t know what to expect. It’s really important to me that you feel 100% safe in sessions with me, and I work toward this by communicating clearly and concretely what is going on, and making sure to partner with you at every turn. Reach out if you would like to work together!
