I view individual therapy as a space to explore authenticity,
identify & address the factors
and experiences leading to a
heal trauma, repair attachment wounds
and begin to develop
more adaptive, empathetic
narratives about ourselves
and the world around us.

Whereas some therapies focus solely on mindset, I am interested in treating you as a whole person. This means taking into account your mind and your body, along with all aspects of your experience as a human being. I will invite you on an exploration of your intersectionalities and the ways in which they impact how you move about the world. I will be looking at your mental health more deeply and dynamically rather than reducing your experience to a static set of psychological symptoms presenting at the surface.
I am not trained in one therapeutic modality, I am trained in many. I take pride in my intuitive ability to weave together therapeutic approaches in a way that effectively matches your needs. Some modalities I tend to pull most frequently from include (but are not limited to): gestalt therapy, somatic experiencing, mindfulness, hakomi, narrative therapy, expressive arts therapy, internal family systems (IFS), ego state therapy, psychosynthesis, dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT), cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), solution-focused therapy, and EMDR
One of my primary goals as a clinician is to dismantle the hierarchy inherent in the client-therapist relationship, and help you to begin to become an expert in your own unique healing process.
My person-centered approach puts you in the driver’s seat, which for those who have been in highly structured, directive therapy settings in the past will be an entirely new experience!
I conduct therapy with an understanding that trauma is widespread and not an experience limited to those who meet the diagnostic criteria for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). I see trauma-informed care as approaching treatment from a place of recognition that trauma is imprinted in each of our nervous systems in unique ways, impacting the way we think, feel, and move about our present-day lives. Being a trauma-informed therapist also means that I actively prioritize safety and consent in the therapy space. The early stages of therapy will be dedicated to trust and rapport, as well as exploring how your nervous system has been impacted by your life experiences and how that shows up in the present day.
