About My Clients
I specialize in working with folks struggling with anxiety, depression, trauma, substance abuse and harm reduction, life transitions, and stress management. I also hold vast experience supporting individuals experiencing PTSD, chronic illness, chronic pain, eating disorders and those struggling with a complicated relationship with food.
My Background and Approach
I work from a holistic lens, meaning there is a variety of ways that I approach therapy and I will tailor our work together to fit your unique needs. I aim to co-create a safe and easeful space to provide compassionate support and unconditional acceptance no matter what is going on in your life. I have extensive training and experience in humanistic, relational, trauma-informed, psychodynamic, and somatic frameworks. I am also certified in Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), which provides concrete tools to cope with difficult and painful emotions and experiences. In my somatic work, I acknowledge that our physical and energetic bodies are powerfully connected to our emotional world and I can help you locate the inherent knowledge that your body holds through various tools and practices.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe that as humans we strive for safety, fulfillment and contentment in our lives. We each have deep wells of wisdom and resources within us that help us move towards systems of balance, but sometimes they get clouded or lost along the way. My hope is to listen to your story and guide you home. Together, let’s allow the parts of you that have been hidden to come up for air and reveal themselves while supporting you on the path back home to your self. I use a social justice and trauma informed lens that acknowledges that at our best as humans, we work to support one another in community. I also believe that therapy can be a political space as it empowers us against oppressive systems. Together we can examine the question: Is there something “wrong” with me as an individual, or do we live in an inequitable society that causes emotional and often generational trauma? There is always room to heal.
