I see psychotherapy as a way to more fully empower and express one’s self in the world, whether as a child, teen, or adult, and, in the process, heal the various “symptoms” that stand in the way. It’s my belief and experience that that sense of self is, by nature, strong, clear, and caring, and yet can become problematic, in feelings and behavior, through the difficult experiences that life can bring. I see my role as helping to bring forth the experience of this successful and caring self, and, specifically to assist the client to heal the problematic traumas, attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors, that interfere with this.

My therapeutic style is grooved in a communal, holistic, integrative, and embodied posture, for children, relationships, & adults.
Hi y'all, I am honored you are taking steps toward empowering yourself! Suffering is an inherent part of life. Hardships in isolation, in aloneness or toxic relations, forms habitual patterns of trauma that can degrade our potential for living and loving. Yet when supported in holistic and compassionate relationships, our past pains have the potential to become present healings. Our trauma responses become wisdom to learn from, and our relationships become integrative dances of healing self and others. Together we can create a therapeutic relationship to unlearn traumatic patterns, empowering a thriving and flourishing life for you.

My counseling approach is to first help you clarify your presenting problems from an integrated mind-body-environment perspective. I utilize mindfulness to help you to develop clarity in the present moment, and art therapy and focusing-oriented psychotherapy to help you explore and embrace your inner wisdom and natural capacity for healing. Through CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) and DBT (dialectical behavior therapy), we can compose an action plan together to develop new coping skills and better support your recovery. When working with children, I utilize art therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, mindfulness approaches, children focusing techniques, and sensory integration concepts from my occupational therapy experience.

I am interested in the meanings that you make from your life experiences and the influence that these have on your perspectives of yourself, your relationships, and your future. I find that viewing problems as separate from personhood helps to lessen feelings of guilt and shame so that we can work together in a collaborative environment. My training in family systems theory informs my view of people in the context of their relationships, environment, and culture.
