About My Clients
I am passionate about facilitating safe, gentle, yet practical therapy that has the potential to bring about long-term benefits for your wellbeing. I work with clients who've experienced trauma, ranging from early childhood/developmental, neglect, attachment, bullying, acute stress, medical, chronic illness, sexual assault, and familial or intimate partner violence. My clients are ready to collaborate with me as they learn how to support themselves with self-compassion in both mind and body.
My Background and Approach
My training and experience enable me to specialize in working with individuals who are living with the impacts of trauma. I believe trauma and its outcomes come in many different forms and can sometimes be a common denominator beneath presenting symptoms. My practice is informed by the latest research in affective neuroscience, compassion-focused treatment, developmental psychology, complementary nutrition, and non-regressive approaches to care. I am trained in proven trauma modalities including EMDR. In the therapy room, I engage clients as their whole selves with an integrative understanding of the human body so that we can attend to what's happening behaviorally, physically, cognitively, and emotionally.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
In addition to my work as a therapist, I work with The Zoe Project -- a nonprofit collective aimed at long-term aftercare and community for survivors of intimate partner violence. I have also lived and worked in Southeast Europe and Western Asia as part of refugee, terrorism, and trauma response teams, and I am currently volunteering my therapy services with a protected diaspora as part of a global anti-genocide initiative.
