My Approach to Helping

My approach in working with clients is gentle and body centered. I frequently work with clients on developing more kindness towards themselves.

Before becoming a therapist, I worked with exercise, helping people with health, movement and awareness. In my graduate training, I studied Gestalt Therapy and Internal Family Systems. Because of this, I help clients orient towards the present moment and physical sensation during sessions. I believe slowing down and noticing what's happening on a subtle level is important. The body provides a lot of information about what is going on. Noticing dissociation and other body and energetic responses that come up during sessions frequently provide the most valuable healing.

I enjoy working with clients from a wide range of backgrounds who are interested in self growth. Common reasons people might come in to therapy include:

-difficulty with anxiety or persistent sadness
-eating disorders
-lack of personal satisfaction or meaning
-histories of abuse
-uncertainty about the future (wanting help clarifying what direction to move in)
-difficulty with personal relationships (codependence, discomfort with people, stuckness in relationships)
-help exploring a passion or creative pursuit
-support though a difficult or especially stressful time
