My Approach to Helping
My work centers around helping people move toward their ideal life situation, using the present moment as the gateway to helping clients develop the life they want. When it comes to working with emotional distress, I teach clients how to work with the experience of difficult emotions using mindfulness techniques and separating from identification with emotions and thoughts. I also have 250 hours of training in somatic trauma therapy, and in working with trauma my first priority is to help clients learn skills to emotionally resource themselves in moments of dysregulation. The goal of teaching resourcing skills is to help clients grow their own ability to self-regulate in moments of distress or when their trauma is triggered.
