I founded Arise Therapy in August 2020 after seven years in community mental health and sexual assault crisis centers where I had the privilege of providing trauma-focused therapy and crisis intervention with adults, children, adolescents, and families of diverse backgrounds. I have over ten years of experience supporting people healing from the effects of sexual violence and trauma in their family of origin.
My approach to therapy is integrative and draws on practices from feminist relational work, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Acceptance & Commitment Therapy (ACT), narrative therapy, and somatic therapies. My goal is to support my clients in creating a sense of internal power and to feel valued and connected with others.
As a Queer person, I'm committed to supporting the LGBTQIA2S+ community, including those who are non-binary, gender diverse, and exploring their sexuality and/or gender. I have experience working with non-monogamous, poly, and kinky adults.
