I use a trauma-informed approach, which acknowledges that we have all experienced suffering. Our history shapes how we cope and respond to difficult stressors. By acknowledging and making space for what you've endured, as well as external/systemic impacts, we can understand and empathize with the self-protective measures that were once put in place, but may not serve you anymore. Together, we will go towards complexities and threads of your story with care and curiosity so you may gain insight and feel more grounded and empowered. It is important that you feel seen and heard how you haven’t been or how you want to be. My training includes a masters degree from the Wright Institute as well as completing my clinical traineeship at RAMS and a two-year post-graduate training program through The Psychotherapy Institute. I currently am a professional member of CAMFT, TPI, and NCSPP.
