"While I do offer talk therapy, I also blend psychotherapy, expressive arts therapy and somatic therapy. Expressive arts therapy can look like anything from me having you choose images (rather than using words) to describe your experience, to drama therapy techniques by which I facilitate you having a conversation with a "part" of yourself that continues a frustrating habit. Somatic work means your body is an integral part of our process. This can mean tracking bodily shifts and sensations together. It can also involve standing practices that reflect back what your body (you) are doing, as opposed to what you think you are doing. "

"Life guarantees all of us ups and downs- but in our highly individualistic culture, it is common to believe that one ought to be able to handle their own difficulties. In reality, stressful life events,transitions and challenges can become much more manageable with consistent support. Through active listening and reflection,I assist clients in accessing their own intuition about what makes their life feel satisfying. Therapy involves a growing self awareness that often uncovers outdated beliefs and patterns. I truly enjoy guiding clients through this discovery process.This often involves a look at how culture and upbringing influence behavior."
