My Approach to Helping
As a Somatic Counselor, I work from an understanding of how our thoughts and emotions are necessarily intertwined with our body - internally with brain wiring and externally through behaviors that communicate when words do not. My focus is challenging emotional states and helping adults, partners, and families resolve what the resulting behaviors may be trying to communicate. Specifically, I work with anxiety, ptsd, depression, anger, health crises, fear of death or abandonment, low self-esteem, and life losses.
My methods are whole-brained, linking both left-brain talk therapy and right-brain expressive therapies (Family Constellation work, Hakomi Experiential Therapy, SandPlay, and expressive exercises), CBT & PSYCH-K core belief work to transform negative belief patterns, as well as EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization & Reprocessing) and BrainSpotting to process traumatic life experiences. Together we choose methods that feel like a fit to meet your circumstance and goals. Ultimately, empowerment is the key.
