As a therapist, I believe in the importance of a person's autonomy, feeling seen without judgment, and that there is no right way to move through the process. From my experience, healing often requires allowing the hard, sticky, revolting, and unwanted emotions to create space for the pleasurable ones. It’s natural to need support through that process. I value joining the body, mind, and emotional realms, incorporating parts work, body-centered approaches, and practical neuroscience. As I learn to take myself less seriously and slow down, I am a big proponent of bringing humor and creative modalities into therapy as well.
