My Approach to Helping
I'm a grounded, compassionate, client-centered, and trauma-conscious therapist working with teens, adults in relationships, millennials, young & new parents, and poly-non-monogamous adults. If you don't fit into any of these groups -- that's fine! -- I am honored to work with anyone, and being part of any of these groups is not a requisite to working together.
I'm an integrative therapist, drawing from an eclectic batch of psychology and sociology, including psycho-dynamic theories, Gestalt, attachment-based, and mindfulness-based techniques to create an organic and collaborative space, in which we can safely see, understand, and untangle the knots in your life that are holding you back. I'm also LGBT-identified and trauma-informed therapist w a B.A. in Sociology & M.A. in Clinical Psychology (specializing in depth psychology and LGBT issues), and I work from a trauma-informed, bio-psycho-social, and humanistic model.
I will draw more specifically from attachment theory principles, culturally-sound emotional wisdom, and progressive social science, to help reconnect you to your authentic self, so that you can stop acting against your own best interests and getting stuck in old habits that no longer serve you.
Your goals are my priority. My goal is to support your goals in whatever way I can, so you can come out the other side of whatever you're going through with greater resilience and confidence, so you can better catch life's curveballs as they come.
