About My Clients

I take a strong approach in trauma informed work, and our relationship to intimacy, vulnerability, and conflict in patterns of attachment. Self-regulation skills, re-establishing the relationship with the body, and dissociative experiences are often relevant when reprocessing difficult experiences. Doing this creates agency and builds new neural pathways. Some specialties of focus are grief, post traumatic stress, self-harm, addiction, family stress, dissociative disorders, and codependency.

My Background and Approach

I hold a masters degree from California InstituteĀ of Integral Studies and all of my training has been very integrative and holistic. I am currently working on completing certifications in the next coming year in EMDR and trauma. Exploring how we process trauma gives us an opportunity to learn more about our core beliefs, attunement to our needs, and how we experience our sense of self. This helps us feel more connected through our relationships, and relate to what is happening right here, right now. I work to get to know not just who you are, but how you are. Working with different parts of the self helps us navigate inner conflict. Overwhelming emotion often fuses us in our thoughts, feeling out of control. Being mindful isn't just slowing down, but seeing what else arises when we do and gaining agency of our own processes. I do not see our symptoms as a pathology, but information about our needs, our inner world, and our life's meaning. I am in it with you.
