I am trained in a variety of methods including level 2 sensorimotor psychotherapy, which has overlap with Hakomi and IFS , and continue to participate in and offer ongoing study and consultation of body based healing practices.
The work I offer is most effective for people who have already spent time working on themselves in therapy, spiritual practice, or by other means. My main treatment focus is developmental trauma, which means the harm caused in relationships growing up. As adults that can look like high functioning depression, anxiety, creative blocks, numbness/dissociation, lack of progress, and other expressions. I provide mindfulness based somatic therapy in an compassionate, supportive, and non-judgmental environment using a wide array of methods. Together we will uncover the healing your body is striving to access.

While I specialize in attachment based psychotherapy, internal family systems , and inner child work, therapy is not one size fits all.
Taking the first steps toward change oftentimes feels overwhelming; I am here to walk this journey with you. If you are looking to discover your resilience and develop a deeper understanding of yourself, I encourage you to reach out. Your story, your feelings, and what you have to say matter; my goal is that you feel heard and empowered. Therapy is a space to slow down from the stressors of everyday life and take an intentional look at your needs and wants moving forward. While change and growth can feel uncomfortable at times, you can expect to feel supported, challenged, and motivated by working with me.

I use Internal Family Systems (parts work), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Trauma Informed Stabilization, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy as primary therapeutic modalities, while also incorporating many others.
I focus on the treatment of trauma using a mind-body and mindfulness framework and work from the understanding that our life experiences are stored in the body. It’s important to pay attention not only to our thoughts and emotions, but also to the clues our body gives us. My goal is to help clients create their own sense of safety, enhance relationship to self, and to move towards a space of presence and increased well-being. I also offer consultation to clinicians hoping to deepen their understanding of parts work using a trauma-informed perspective.

I am excited to partner with you in this phase of your journey. My goal as your therapist is to walk alongside you as you discover your own voice, passions and healing. I believe you have everything you need within you to cope. Through an eclectic approach of attachment theory, CBT, transpersonal theory, internal family systems and mindfulness practices, we will explore the experiences that led you to therapy. There are many reasons to seek therapy- unfulfilling relationships, trouble with self-image, difficult family dynamics, life transitions, traumatic experiences or loss, and all can be explored in a supported setting.

Working with individuals and couples, I help us care for all parts of you through "parts work" or Internal Family Systems ( IFS ).
Many of my clients are looking for new ways of handling stress in their lives, are working to heal from difficult early experiences, or are seeking to improve their intimate relationships. Together, we can observe stuck patterns with curiosity, heal old wounds, and experiment with new ways of relating to yourself and others. I deeply enjoy helping people see themselves in a new light and experience increased wellbeing in their relationships.

I utilize trauma-informed treatments such as EMDR and Internal Family Systems theory.
The foundation of any therapy is the relationship between the counselor and the client. Research has shown that the therapeutic relationship may be more important to treatment success than the specific therapeutic technique. For my part, I attempt to be the best therapist that I possibly can in regard to both the therapeutic relationship and technique. My goal is to walk with you in the therapy process. The path may be dark, but you will not be alone. I work with both couples and individuals in addressing symptoms caused by trauma.

I help parents/caregivers (especially introverts!) struggling with stress and intensity, so that instead of feeling exhausted & hopeless, they have the tools (like training in the Nurtured Heart Approach®, or NHA; Internal Family Systems , and Solution Focused Brief Therapy, as well as body-based co-regulation skills) to be calm, connected & recharged.
You're trying to give what you didn’t get. Maybe you feel stuck or unreliable in your parenting -- why is it so hard to do some days, or with certain ages? You wonder, did I miss the window for having an impact on my kids? Will they only remember our bad times? Will I get to feel like a self again? You yearn for another voice, another presence that is unbiased & trustworthy, to help you process & give room to all the swirling hurt & uncertainty. You want a consistent, steady feeling, and self trust.

I draw from a variety of approaches, including Internal Family Systems , Acceptance Commitment Therapy (ACT), grief work, and trauma-informed practices.
Currently accepting new clients! Sometimes the world we live in can feel intensely overwhelming and our everyday lives can seem particularly challenging to navigate. If you’re feeling lost, I assure you, it’s a perfectly normal part of the human experience. Reaching out for help is an excellent step to find your way forward through whatever you’re facing, whether that’s a recent loss, the pressures of a new school or job, or even difficult family relationships. Therapy can give us so many gifts: the space to process our experience, skills to ease challenging situations, and even deeper insight into our own unique sense of the world.

Are you having a difficult time enjoying activities or your relationships like you used to? Depression, anxiety, trauma, grief, and life transitions can be quite challenging, and you deserve to be supported while we work together to resolve past wrongs, correct current realities, and set off on a path towards the future you want. I actively establish a safe, non-judgmental space wherein you will be able to re-connect with the clarity and creativity necessary to navigate internal conflicts and enhance your relationships.

I also love to use IFS in my work.
I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to therapy, so I try to customize my therapy to each client. I believe in meeting people where they're at, and helping them find and use the tools to work through their pain. I can help if you're struggling with depression, anxiety, sleep difficulties, poor self-esteem, trauma, or adjustment issues. I really like to help people go deeper into their present issues, through a somatic, psychodynamic, and attachment focused lens.

Have you ever felt stuck in the same cycle over and over no matter how hard you try to break away? These type of patterns can often make it feel impossible to stay connected, be at peace, and thrive. I want you to know there is hope. Together we can explore how past patterns and trauma affect the present while building on your strengths to manifest a feeling of inner strength and freedom. I value creating an affirming therapeutic space where clients of LGBTQ+ identities, kink/sex-positive practices, and polyamorous relationships are safe and welcomed.

I utilize various modalities with particular fondness for Internal Family Systems ( IFS ) and Trauma-Focused CBT.
I am not accepting new clients at this time. Are you grappling with difficult thoughts, feelings, or experiences? Are you looking to unpack how past experiences show up in your day-to-day life? This work can feel daunting or difficult to do alone, and can make you feel extremely vulnerable. This is probably why you're seeking an insightful and compassionate therapist; someone who can assist you in building coping skills and alleviating the symptoms you encounter, while meeting you where you're at. I hope to provide the services you need to meet your mental health goals.

We are all called to evolve beyond our survival level strategies designed to cope with wounding family systems , lineages and social systems. It is possible to integrate the legacy of trauma we have inherited and thrive in this lifetime. We are collectively facing monumental global challenges, socially, politically and environmentally, that amplifies this legacy, and hastens the call for us to cultivate greater capacity to stay present, grounded and lovingly engaged. Returning to wholeness requires reorienting towards mobilizing our rich inner and outer resources, shifting from generating suffering to unlocking liberation.
