About My Clients
I recognize that my clients know themselves and their identities more intimately than I do. I believe that people have what they need to heal and that my job is to walk along side you as a guide on your path to wholeness. Currently, I am seeing individual adults and adolescents and will be opening my practice soon to partners & families. I will be taking on new supervises later this year, specializing in supervision of LGBTQ+ folx and those working in integrated behavioral health settings.
My Background and Approach
I work relationally and collaboratively with individuals, partners, and families through a systemic lens that is influenced by attachment and feminist theory. I consider the contexts of your personal environments as well as larger social-cultural contexts such as areas of systemic oppression and intergenerational trauma that are influencing the issue you’d like to address in therapy. I use the Gottman Method (Level 2) with couples. I have extensive experience working with clients to treat to symptoms of depression, anxiety, panic and the effects of trauma. My approach to treating trauma is rooted in body-based talk therapy. I focus on helping people understand and manage the ways trauma is interfering in your life. We focus on present day experiences, rather than having you retell traumatic stories of past events. I believe certain attachment harm does benefit from more narrative work and the power of being seen about these experiences can have profound healing reverberations.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a member of the LGBTQ+ community and am engaged in a life-long process of learning an unlearning around areas of systemic oppression. Both of these aspects of myself are integral to the way I work with clients in therapy.
