You already have the internal resources and resilience you need to navigate your life. My job as a counselor is to facilitate accessing, strengthening, and utilizing these resources - even under the most difficult circumstances. I work with presenting issues by simultaneously and explicitly holding broader socio-cultural contexts in conjunction with your individual biology, personality, and history. I offer a strengths-based, client-defined, trauma-informed approach, specializing in how the body/movement can access, work through, and heal trauma, cognitive and behavioral patterns.
My approach to counseling is warm and relational. My work is informed primarily by the latest research findings in both neuroscience and trauma-informed care. I balance processing with skill-building, and talk therapy with somatic/movement work. Ultimately, your life context and what you want/need from therapy will guide and shape our work together.
