About My Clients
Do you feel stuck? Do you feel like you know all the rules and what you are “supposed to do” but somehow can’t get where you want to go? As your therapist, it is my goal to help you feel at home in your mind, body, and heart. My clients tend to be intelligent humans who feel caught in their anxious minds, trauma, or simply desire support in living a more authentic and meaningful life. I work with people suffering from trauma, anxiety, life changes, grief, eating disorders, depression, etc.
My Background and Approach
I have a Masters in Clinical Mental Health that focused on Contemplative Psychotherapy and Buddhist Psychology. I am currently trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) and Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which are both trauma treatment modalities and have been successfully applied to other ailments, such as phobias, panic attacks, anxiety, etc.. Modalities and interventions that are my go-to's include mindfulness, ACT, mindful self-compassion, and motivational interviewing.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in your innate goodness and will always remind and point this out to you. I cannot tell you what is right/wrong or healthy/unhealthy and I resist being another voice telling you what you are “supposed to do”. My job is to provide a warm and accepting space to not just think and talk but to feel the big emotions. I will ask questions, reflect, and ponder alongside you as we rediscover your inherent wisdom and regain a sense of freedom.
