About My Clients

I work with individual adults and adolescents who desire deeper and more secure connection with themselves and others. I may be a particularly good fit for those who are navigating the impacts of complex trauma, domestic violence and partnership challenges, religious and spiritual trauma, attachment wounding, chronic illness and medical trauma, LGBTQ+ clients and those wanting to explore identity. I welcome clients whose needs and life experience exist outside of these particular areas, as well.

My Background and Approach

My practice is informed by past work with survivors of intimate partner violence and clients with complex trauma histories. I have worked with clients exploring and tending to attachment wounds; navigating harmful relationship dynamics; and moving through the grief, shame, dysregulation, and disconnection that can stem from trauma and oppression. My trauma-informed approach integrates tenets of many therapeutic theories and modalities including polyvagal theory, attachment theory, psychodynamic theory, somatic work, parts work, and a liberation health framework--but, ultimately, my approach to therapy is unique to you and your experience.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

It is tender to entrust another person with your lived experiences and inner process. I welcome your openness with compassion, curiosity, and a trauma-informed approach. Therapy provides an opportunity to delve into the experiences, relationships, and systems that have shaped your life and sense of self. I will walk alongside you as we explore the patterns and beliefs you wish to leave behind or shift as well as those you want to carry forward with you. My goal as a therapist is to collaborate in cultivating a liberatory space where all parts and pieces of you may be witnessed and nurtured. My hope is that this process will help you find greater self-compassion and healing, empower you to feel closer to your values, and support deepened security in your connections, needs, and desires. I believe deeply in your capacity to connect with resources within yourself as well as new resources you find and build along the way in your inner and outer worlds.
