About My Clients
I work with clients who want to find freedom, relief, and peace after experiencing trauma, significant life transitions, or who have been living with anxiety. We all come with different stories, identities, backgrounds, cultures, and experiences which make up who we are and how we relate to the people and world around us. Therapy is an opportunity to examine, understand, and process these parts of us in order to better understand ourselves and find a sense of ease in our lives.
My Background and Approach
As an IFS-informed therapist, I believe my clients already hold the wisdom they need to find meaning and fulfillment. I use a holistic approach that brings in parts work, EMDR, mindfulness strategies, and other integrative techniques to help my clients examine and release belief systems, experiences, and traumas that are impacting them. I have found the combination of working with parts through an IFS lens and using EMDR for trauma processing, to be an incredibly illuminating and healing therapeutic approach for my clients who are looking to better understand their internal landscape and to feel more control in their lives. IFS allows us to look at the complexity of our internal experience and help understand and have compassion for all our parts. Those parts can sometimes lead us to early woundings which can be healed and processed, allowing life changes to occur in incredibly powerful ways which allow clients to feel a sense of freedom.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe we are all moving towards healing. That our systems are built to try and heal and that our intuition knows how to guide us there when we have the support we need. I feel truly honored to be able to be a companion on my clients healing journey's, to be allowed to support, facilitate, hold, and guide my clients through a process their systems are craving. I believe that therapy can bring in a sense of magic. To me, it often feels like magic. The synchronicities, the way my clients start to shift and heal, the resonance we each can feel with the therapeutic process. I take a fiercely non-pathologizing lens. What I mean by that is I truly believe the parts of us that can bring up our most uncomfortable emotions, are often parts of us that are fighting for us to heal and protect us, even if it doesn't always feel that way. So I welcome those parts, I want to understand and get to know them, understand their intention so we can better support the healing of the whole person.
