About

Allow me to be a fellow traveler on your journey into the unknown parts of your life. I'm asking for a deep commitment to participate in this process of self-discovery and self-healing. I believe that everyday stress is rooted in your past. Let's bravely move into those spaces when you feel ready. Feeling safe is vital in this process. We will develop our therapeutic alliance so you feel grounded beforehand. With deep trust for one another, we can bring about lasting transformations in your mind, body, and spirit. "The cave you fear to enter, holds the treasure you seek." - Joseph Campbell
Our process will be informed by Jungian, Internal Family Systems (IFS), and Transpersonal Psychotherapy. We will also utilize experiential methods including guided meditation, breathwork, Ericksonian Hypnotherapy, guided imagery, and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy. I also offer 1-5 day individual and group outdoor retreats to longstanding clients.
I'd love to chat with you and set up a free 20-min consultation. Exploring your unknown can be difficult, but it's worth it! I'll do what I am able while we are together to help you on your journey to self-actualization. Feel free to request a consultation on my website: vanderlcsw.com. Once you are my client, our virtual therapy sessions last 1-3 hours.
