My approach to working with clients: Holistic Psychotherapy , Somatic Psychotherapy, Mindfulnes, specializing in Sexual Abuse, Trauma, Anxiety, Stress. Each client I see has their own story - the beliefs they hold about themselves, and the patterns (automatic ways of acting and thinking) that support those beliefs. Perhaps one was neglected as a child, and believes they need to do everything for themselves. Perhaps there was childhood abuse, and it's difficult to trust people, or to feel safe with intimacy. Perhaps one is stuck in their family role (for example: hero, lost child, mascot, scapegoat).

The framework I work from is somatic, which holds bodily experience as central to how we function and know ourselves.
I celebrate clients of all racial and ethnic backgrounds, as well as gender identities and sexual orientations, and am kink and nonmonogamy positive. I work within a liberatory, decolonial lens which takes into account not only how our early relational experiences shape us, but how the cultural and economic environments we inhabit influence us as well. If you are coming to therapy as a couple or family I will support you in paying attention to the nonverbal behaviors that may be contributing to painful dynamics of disconnection.

I specialize in mindfulness based psychotherapy, as well as somatic (body-based awareness) psychotherapy and Gestalt therapy.
As I see it, the primary role of a counselor is to serve as a mirror to help reveal what the client hasn't yet been able to see-especially those patterns of relating to self, others, and the environment that might be causing suffering. At the same time, the counselor is there to reflect, affirm, and strengthen the client's unique gifts and talents.One of the biggest impediments to healing, growth, and creativity is shame. To help clients move through this debilitating emotion, I use a combination of mindfulness, body awareness, and other healing modalities.
