I utilize relational and feminist approaches, am EMDR trained, and use attachment theory, IFS , DBT skills, and MBCT.
Most of us carry around stories about who we are and who we should be without really knowing how we got them or if we want to keep them. Therapy is a place to gently explore and unpack these narratives. My clients want to like and understand themselves more, have better relationships, and feel more hope and possibility in their lives. They are determined and brave, but often have been trying things that aren't working or leave them more stuck. I believe every person has an innate capacity to heal, but sometimes trauma and life experiences can block those pathways and make life feel narrow and small.

In my work as a therapist, I rely on: compassion, creativity, curiosity, honesty, patience, kindness, and humor. I am fond of working with Internal Family Systems , Narrative Therapy, and with whatever it was Carl Whitaker was up to. I consider my practice to be an invitation to work with people of all: ages, backgrounds, identities and expressions, which in part means I work with kids and teens. My pronouns are typically he/him.

I love working with folks who identify across the LGBTQIA2-S++ spectrum, as well as those who have other marginalized and/or non-normative identities and life experiences. My work is trauma-informed and rooted in values of collective liberation, anti-oppression, resilience, and intersectionality. My work is systemically focused, meaning that I work to support you in your growth as a whole self who lives as an interconnected and interdependent being within the unique context of your life.

I’m so glad you are here. Do you feel overwhelmed, confused, stuck, anxious, or dissociated? Find yourself shutting people out and pushing them away, or say yes for fear of being alone? Sometimes it’s just easier to do things ourselves, to hold it all. We often spend so much time protecting ourselves from pain that we feel like we are not really living. Humans are hardwired to focus on the negative aspects of life for survival; even when there is some good, we push the positive away or have a hard time accepting it.

In life, unexpected things happen. Challenges and bumps in the road are all part of it. Sometimes with the the help of another we can make room for and navigate through planned or unexpected changes. With the help of a trained professional, life challenges can become easier to deal with. During the therapeutic process, I will work with the tools you already have in order to tackle life's problems. I will listen empathetically and help you uncover those strengths you thought you lost through your life challenges, often using humor and warmth to work through your problems.

It takes courage to start therapy. You've probably tried a number of ways to do this yourself. You want to feel better, more in control and not be so bothered by certain people, things, and past events. That is exactly what I am trained and experienced in helping people do.

I hold a deep belief that we all have an enduring drive toward wholeness in the ways we attempt to manage life's events as they happen to us. As we grow up and older, the ways we learned to cope with those events often stop working for us. We hold onto those tactics because they are what we know how to do. What troubles us (fear, anxiety, depression, anger, chronic pain or illness - and more) is our coping strategies fail to prevent past traumas coming up in life again and again to haunt us. We can be free of those and experience happiness, peace of mind, and know what it is to have purpose and meaning.

Hi. I am a licensed mental health counselor who specializes in adults who experienced early childhood trauma. I believe most humans are fully capable of creating a life they desire if they can return to who they are in the core, wild, soul. I utilize evidence based practices such as EMDR, mindfulness, CBT, DBT, IFS , and ACT in a multiprong approach to address past and present issues, or stuck points, that are repeating unwanted patterns in your daily life. I believe that you are the expert on you and that my job is to provide you with tools and space to practice skills. We're all just humans walking each other walking home.

I have a strong background, Internal Family Systems Certified, EMDR and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy.
I believe in empowering people to reach their full potential by providing services that are strengths-based, practical, holistic, and focused on promoting long lasting change. I work using a style of fostering trust and authenticity,starting where people want and ending when people feel their life and issues have changed and their happiness enhanced. I believe the relationship in counseling is the core issue in treatment. This is particularly important in working with children and adolescents where no work could be done without building a warm, honest, and caring connection. I believe healing comes through the mind, body, spirit connection.

I work with clients who are ready for transformative work. My focus is to guide each client/s towards building a sense of competency, resourcefulness and helping them recognize that they hold the key to their own healing. I will explore current behaviors and life situations with clients and help them figure out which ones are inhibiting progress, which ones are serving them, and which are ready to be evolved into something else. I also like to look at the past, and family of origin to find what the patterns are that are ready to be broken and how to move forward in an empowered way. I help clients bring to life their next self.

I serve clients from a plethora of diverse backgrounds and situations; I enjoy learning about cultures, traditions, and customs! Our differences are our natural strengths; these differences don't separate us, they bring us closer together! With this perspective I enjoy working with clients that are looking, and ready, to embrace the challenges they are experiencing. Clients often encounter multiple obstacles that intersect with their past, present, and future selves. My goal is to deliver the appropriate treatment that is needed for clients to experience optimal relief.
