I believe a fine tuned awareness of oneself and a well regulated body are essential to overall well-being. I support you in understanding your problems in new ways and clarifying novel, practical options you can take to increase satisfaction and reduce distress. I work to assist you in clarifying your personal needs, mapping repetitive patterns and noticing what interferes with feeling fulfilled or settled. Action toward change is complicated and usually feels risky. I am here to help you understand yourself better and work through patterns that keep you stuck. Usually these patterns feel “second nature” and difficult to change.
Sometimes these patterns have even been around a while, helping with survival and adjustment to formative or traumatic circumstances. I work with individuals and couples to increase insight into these patterns while also working to regulate their emotions and bodies/autonomic nervous systems more effectively.
I have considerable experience working with a variety of concerns, including, but not limited to: complex/developmental trauma, PTSD, anxiety, depression, OCD, personality issues, emotion regulation, relationships, job/career, gender & sexuality, family, adolescence inc. 20s identity & family issues, cultural/racial issues, anger, substance use & grief/loss.
