My Approach to Helping
My approach is holistic, integrative, and highly collaborative. I integrate a number of evidence-based therapeutic modalities, from trauma-focused cognitive behavioral therapy to control mastery approaches to feminist therapy to somatic approaches to depth-informed approaches, to the clinical applications of deep imagination. I bring a trauma and attachment lens into all of my work, as well as internal family systems, and emotional literacy perspective. I draw on each aspect of my training intuitively in session, and I always hold my clients in warmth, genuine compassion, and non-judgment.
Many of my clients are very creative or very sensitive people, and many of them are womxn, though I am open to working with all gender expressions and identities. Many times they come to me with depressive symptoms, symptoms of anxiety or dissociation, panic attacks, or past trauma that they would like to work on. I am a great therapist for people who are interested in unpacking, exploring, and expanding their awareness of what is underneath their symptoms, and who feel ready to embrace a more self-compassionate way of living. I always have oracle cards and art supplies in my office as a way to help more visual clients get to the root of what is coming up in the session and in life.
