"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. "

I offer an opportunity to utilize heartbreak in service of growth and to begin to untangle the reality of your current relationships from the residue of your history.

"Conflict, sadness, confusion, anger, grief, worry, shame, fear, phobias, nightmares: They can arise in our lives like scary monsters. Children, adolescents, and adults all experience these feelings as unwanted and unwelcome. What if, instead of pushing these feelings away, we listened to what they have to say to us? This might sound just too, too scary, but that's why I'm here! When an unknown part of ourselves looms like a monster in the closet, we must coax it out with patience and kindness. This is very difficult to do alone (especially for young people!) "
