In our work together, we will collaborate in exploring beliefs and patterns of behavior you may have taken on a long time ago and will look at how they show up in your life today. As a somatic therapist, I will listen for the cues of your nervous system and will support you in developing skills and having tools to help you reclaim calm, confidence, and strength.
The main models I use are: Internal Family Systems (IFS) - working with inner parts toward harmonizing the mind; Somatic Experiencing - a somatic trauma resolution approach; and Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP) - a relational model of psychotherapy. I am a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner and am IFS Level 3-trained. I have completed couples therapy trainings in Intimacy from the Inside Out (IFS for couples) and the Developmental Model of Couples Therapy. In addition to my graduate degree in Counseling, I hold a Master's Degree in Positive Psychology and work from a strengths-based orientation.
