I lean toward systems theory, with a humanistic perspective, aiming to be mindful of intersecting identities, the environmental, and experiential layers.
I believe strongly that the therapeutic relationship is paramount in attaining benefit from psychotherapy. Feeling safe, validated, and heard are incredibly important. A sense of trust, as well as having a supportive, and open environment are foundational in beginning the process of unpacking, sorting, and addressing what has brought you to this moment. Essentially, your connection with your therapist matters. My approach is person-centered, with hopes of being able to meet you where you are, with a therapeutic orientation that is intuitive in nature.

My background is in Systems and Humanistic counseling.
I believe we all have a natural ability to heal, but sometimes obstacles get in the way (traumatic experiences, patterns of thought and things we do to feel better, that have consequences later on). This healing often begins once we learn to acknowledge all aspects of ourselves with compassion and understanding, including parts of ourselves we consider unwanted or unacceptable. I will hold respectful space for all of your feelings and work with you to develop tools and somatic (body) awareness, and tap into your own higher wisdom, so that you can find more fulfillment and meaning in your life and relationships.

I see individuals with anxiety, depression, phobias, and with histories of trauma, (including service members returning from Afghanistan and Iraq). I use EMDR combined with other client-centered therapies. What is most important, however, is that your therapy is tailored to your individual needs and does not follow a strict set of guidelines. Using a humanistic and transpersonal approach, we explore how longstanding beliefs and values affect how you feel about yourself and about the choices you make. We will identify and eliminate your "stumbling blocks" so that you feel in control of your destiny.
