About My Clients

I work with individual adults struggling with painful relationship patterns, chronic anxiety/depression, addictive behaviors, negative self-concepts, and other impacts of childhood abuse and neglect. I have a particular interest in supporting neuro-diverse women who have been “afraid to be alone” in developing a deep and fulfilling relationship with their own nervous system, innate inner wisdom and their precious inner child.

My Background and Approach

My therapy practice is deeply grounded in my own psychological growth and development work, with over 25 years of personal therapy and professional/clinical experience studying and practicing a variety of psychotherapies for trauma healing. My practice is guided by the polyvagal theory of the autonomic nervous system, Laurel Parnell's Attachment-Focused EMDR, Pia Mellody's Post-Induction Therapy model, feminist theory, family systems, attachment theory, depth psychology, somatic-based psychotherapies, and trauma & addiction studies.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

The “self as instrument” perspective is at the crux of my work. This places responsibility on the therapist to do their own therapy and suggests that a therapist can only take their clients as far as they have personally gone in their own healing process. As a late-diagnosed autistic and in recovery myself, I have come to fully trust in the innate capacity of the human being to heal following painful life experiences. I believe in the power of trauma-informed education and embracing neuro-differences as a way forward for our world.

I offer online counseling in the following states:
I have experience with the following
  • Agnosticism
  • Buddhism
  • Christianity
  • Wicca/Paganism
