About My Clients
As an EMDR and IFS trained clinician, my specialty is the treatment of PTSD, complex trauma, anxiety and dissociative disorders in adults and adolescents. I strive to create a calming, safe space and have a more gentle approach, though I will challenge you to do very hard work at a pace that feels safe for you. Compassion, curiosity, and mindfulness are some of my favorite tools.
My Background and Approach
I've worked in a variety of settings with all ages of clients. This has given me a unique insight into development and how life shapes us from an early age. I've developed my trauma specialty by getting additional training in EDMR and IFS, and then applying that in my work with clients with PTSD, complex trauma, depression and anxiety over the past 6 years.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in the inherent goodness and worthiness of everyone and my life experiences have shown me the myriad of ways that we all can forget this or lose our way. For me, counseling has been a centering place to find my way back to who I really am. Sometimes I can sit and meditate and do that on my own, but a lot of the time I need someone to be with me in it because I'm lost or stuck. As a counselor it's such a privilege to be with others in those spaces, to help my clients find their way back to who they really are.
