I integrate holistic healing modalities such as hypnotherapy, inner child, and somatic -based work to customize an approach that best suits your particular needs so you feel safe and supported.
You are seen. You are heard. You are loved. Your voice, no matter how small or hidden it may feel, deserves a space to find meaning, truth, and healing. Perhaps you have experienced trauma and are coping with intense emotions. Perhaps you are struggling with your identity and self-esteem, wondering "who am I?" as you navigate a new phase or challenge in your life. Or maybe you want to form more connected and intimate relationships, but don't know how. We can explore and address whatever it is that may be holding you back from living your most fulfilled life.

You are an artist, spiritually seeking, or simply need support in navigating the challenges of anxiety, stress, alienation. You or your family hold complex and intersectional identities, inclusive of race, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, immigration, class, disability/health, and adoption and are looking to repair relationships, understand each other's experiences with more compassion, and learn how to attune and love more deeply. You identify as BIPOC and/or LGBTQ+ and are trying to heal the impacts of trauma and find your own innate resources for resilience and healing.

In addition to relational psychoanalysis, I incorporate somatic and mindfulness practices and am happy to collaborate in order to find what works for you.
I work with adults across the mental health spectrum with anxiety, depression, CPTSD, attachment issues, problems in relationships, and low self-esteem. Therapy can help you figure out how to better understand, relate to, or change your dynamics and patterns of relating to others, as well as coping with difficulty. I also work with couples to help explore the triggering dynamics and communication issues that so often make people feel stuck and unhappy in relationships.

” I draw upon cognitive-behavioral, multicultural & feminist theories, & a mindful-psycho- somatic therapy: Hakomi.
Sometimes our environments feel so loud that we adapt by living in a reactive state to what's going on around us, rather than attuning to what's within us. We can intellectually know ourselves and the world we want, but not emotionally embody ourselves and our wants. This can feel like a tiring loop and often manifests in depressive, anxious, and perfectionistic tendencies. We can change this! Learn how to relate to your emotions in a new way, where they support your ability to cultivate a life that is fully alive and stemming from within YOUR mind-body-spirit!

I incorporate somatic techniques, trauma-informed practices, cognitive behavioral principles, and inner-child work in sessions.
Life can be really messy sometimes and can feel out of control. We can find ourselves stuck in old patterns, unsure how to navigate change and move forward. Particularly after a traumatic experience, we may feel frozen and out of touch with who we really are. My goal is to help you navigate these challenging times and develop tools to create a life full of meaning, joy and connection.

I’ve heard people describe looking for a therapist as being similar to shopping for shoes- some fit better than others! I genuinely do find myself to be adaptable and a good fit to a variety of folks. I tend to work by personalizing theories from psychodynamic and relational models, somatic and mindfulness-based CBT, to find the best fit for you. We may be a good match if you want to find more meaning in your life, gain access to more positive emotions (joy, peace, vitality, and more) and build more engagement and ease in your relationships.

In addition to use of evidence-based treatment modalities, including EMDR, Internal Family Systems, somatic therapy, and Dialectical Behavior Therapy, I place a great deal of importance on the therapeutic relationship itself as a source of trust, collaboration, and commitment.
I believe we each have a core part of ourselves that is wise, confident, and desiring of secure connection with others. Single event or repeated traumatic experiences can distance us from this core part and we can find ourselves using coping mechanisms, such as excessive substance use and other self-harming behaviors, that no longer serve us or our relationships. Identifying the needs we are desperately trying to meet and exploring alternate ways to meet them can disrupt the cycle that keeps us feeling defeated and lead us towards more fulfilling relationships with ourselves and those we care about.

I operate from a Somatic Internal Family Systems framework and a harm-reduction/abolitionist lens, and am trained in EMDR.
Self-compassion is a great buzzword, but it's easier said than done. Sometimes you have to avoid or fight feelings and parts of yourself. Maybe you feel overwhelmed, worn out or conflicted. Maybe you are not satisfied with your core relationships. This could be because parts of you are stuck in past experiences and those parts are using the tools they have (like avoidance, self-criticism, anxiety...) to protect you from more pain, even though these tools don't always serve you now. Together, we can welcome and get to know each part of you slowly and safely, and introduce new tools for coping and making change.
