Are you finding it difficult to engage in activities that once brought joy and meaning to your life due to sadness, feelings of loss, or overwhelming worry? I help people reengage in valued activities and relationships, heal from trauma, and rediscover what is most important in their lives. My approach to therapy is relational and integrative. I employ behavioral health interventions, viewing these elements as tools that are best utilized in a broader person-centered context of physiological health and psychological wholeness.

I believe that building a safe, trusting therapeutic relationship is the foundation through which growth and change occur. Integrating person-in-environment, trauma-informed, and attachment-based frameworks, I approach therapy through understanding how clients developed into who they are based on their intergenerational and collective histories and trauma, positionality within systems of power and oppression, and early childhood relational experiences. Some of my clinical interests include working with those from colonized/oppressed backgrounds, including BIPOC, LGBTQIA+, immigrants and undocumented folks, and cultural straddlers.

My clinical and research experience in attachment theory, neurobiology of trauma, and violence inform the relational focus of my clinical practice.
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.

When the arrival of a new baby is accompanied by grief and loss, trauma, medical complications, relational challenges, or mental health concerns such as depression, anxiety or bipolar disorder, parents may need more comprehensive support.
Pregnancy, birth and postpartum adjustment are an exciting time, but can also include anxiety, worry, and feelings of deep vulnerability. New parents may experience significant, and sometimes unexpected, challenges with regard to balancing personal and professional roles, identity changes, relationships and developing confidence as a parent. Counseling can be invaluable to help you transition through this time with ease, and get your family off to the best possible start.
