About My Clients
I work with children and teens, as well as adults who have experienced developmental trauma. The children who I work with tend to struggle with emotion regulation. They are highly sensitive children who either act out i.e. aggression and tantrums, or shut down i.e. depression and anxiety. The teens I work with are often working on issues around self-esteem and relationships. My work with adults centers around accessing the inner child and healing traumatic or negative experiences.
My Background and Approach
I have spent many years working with children, and wondering how to best help them thrive. I have also been through a healing journey which led me to Somatic Therapy. I learned how to heal through experiencing my body fully. These two passions led me to obtain an MA in Somatic Counseling from Naropa University. From there I have been using Internal Family Systems therapy and Synergetic Play Therapy to help children and adults. I come to all the modalities I utilize from a Somatic lens. My therapeutic style is warm and empathic. I do not claim to have the wisdom to heal others. However, I fully believe that every individual has the internal wisdom to heal their own wounds. I am constantly in awe of the brilliance I encounter in each of my clients. I feel passionately that my role as a therapist is not to fix or advise, but to help clear away that which is getting in the way of my client's capacity to be their own advisor.
