I have received education and specialized training in multiple therapeutic orientations, including feminist /relational therapy, Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing (EMDR), somatic approaches, and Internal Family Systems (IFS).
I love what I do. As a therapist, I have the privilege of walking with people during a part of their life journey, and it’s incredibly rewarding. I work well with people who desire greater self-knowing. My clients are curious and self-reflective, but have experienced things that leave them feeling stuck, frustrated and uncertain. During sessions we may encounter hard-to-feel emotions like grief, anger, and shame. Together we sort through the mess, look at it with kindness, and make meaning. Clients leave therapy with me having cultivated deeper clarity and self-compassion, and feel able to make empowered choices in their lives.
