I am trained in individual, group and family counseling. My grounding in a strength-based, person-centered, holistic approach aids me in building meaningful therapeutic alliances. I compassionately meet my clients where they are at and use techniques from cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), mindfulness, expressive arts, narrative, somatic stress release, motivational interviewing and other modalities.
I believe that humans vacillate between operating from regulated and unregulated states, triggered by various obstacles including environmental match to temperament, trauma and biological patterns formed to adapt to past traumas throughout generations. Through your commitment to the process of compassionately identifying and untangling unhelpful beliefs that have served purpose in the past, I will explore your goals with you in depth as we walk through the stages of change together and navigate feelings of safety, symptom reduction, and hope in every session.
