To aide my clients I practice the following Theoretical Orientations/approaches; Humanistic Client-Centered Therapy, Transpersonal Art Therapy, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Gestalt techniques, aspects of Internal Family Systems, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, Attachment-Based Therapy, and elements of Somatic Therapy.
**Currently accepting new patients.** Helping others in expression and connection. By use of visual metaphor inspired by art-making and re-connection with nature I provide trauma informed Client-Centered Therapy with a Critical Consciousness Social Justice lens. It is my aspiration to encourage clients of all ages to explore their identities, patterns, & relationships. I believe that healing is done in connection to each other and is a matter of holding all that you feel in your heart, while having the courage to re-write your narrative at your own pace. A process that leads to integration and discovering our personal truths.

**Currently accepting virtual consults for Oct intakes** I'm here to support individuals with post-traumatic stress, interpersonal difficulties, life transitions, and more. I really appreciate the complexity of personality and identity formation. My ideal client was raised with a slightly "messed up" childhood, which they laugh about but say they are "over it". But, they may be having some concerns in their current relationships and be asking themselves- why is this a pattern for me? Is this related to how I was raised? These questions offer opportunity for exploring strengths as well as challenges.

I believe that as humans we all experience suffering, and sometimes those negative experiences can impact the way we view ourselves, others, and the world. Stressful or traumatic experiences can lead to depression, anxiety, sleep issues, avoidance, and negative thoughts and emotions, including anger, guilt or shame. Many mental health issues and destructive patterns are developed out of difficult or traumatic experiences which are stored in our emotional memory networks and have yet to be processed in an adaptive way.

Establishing a sense of wholeness and direction in our lives is often revealed once obstacles are known and cleared. This process of self discovery is far more potent and transformational when working with a therapist who can help navigate these unfamiliar places. My practice is largely informed by the personal experience of profound grief. Journeying through these difficult waters allows me to uniquely empathize and assist my clients through life struggles and losses.

Pain is part of the human experience. Rather than efforts of eliminating distress, I invite individuals to amplify their awareness of thoughts, sensations, and impulses that contribute to pain and suffering. This mindful practice, coupled with self-compassion, can mobilize healing, increase our ability to manage distress, and expand our resilience. Collaboratively, we will explore options for creating a meaningful life.
