I will honor that you have come to a point in your life where you feel that you need to set aside a time and place for self-reflection. You will meet me and choose if you can feel comfortable with me. I will get to know you, to see if what I have to offer might be helpful to you.

In a safe, confidential therapy relationship, along with struggles that at times may seem insurmountable, can come the experience of opening one's soul to the moment, whatever that moment is. By exploring what is true for ourselves we are giving ourselves the gift of opening to new possibilities.

Depending on what you feel safe and comfortable with, I can help you explore what is true for you (mind, feelings, breath, body), help you notice where you are open to exploration and where you might be resistant. I will honor that resistant parts might be trying to keep you safe. You and I will build a relationship. I will bear witness to your journey and help you reflect on what is true for you, in any moment.

I work with anxiety and depression and also with people who have experienced deeper trauma in their lives. I also have experience working with a broad spectrum of Trans clients.

More Info About My Practice

I am most interested in relational, person-centered therapy, and psychodynamic therapy.
As a visual artist, I first trained in intermodal expressive therapy at Lesley University (Intermodal is a way of moving between expressive art forms as a way of self-exploration).
However I came to realize, through years of my own therapy that what was most helpful to me, and I believe could be to you, is learning what it means to "be" in a dyadic relationship with your therapist (maybe in a calmer way than other relationships that have brought you to this point in your life).
I am happy to explore other kinds of therapy under this umbrella. For example, Internal Family Systems and breath and body work go well together, as does focusing, journaling, art work and narrative therapy. For trauma work, I like to use a sensorimotor approach that is a slow safe way to get to know and integrate unregulated parts of your autonomic nervous system. And at times it can make sense to be supported in a very concrete, cognitive and behavioral way, to get life tasks done!

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

We all have different preferences and are drawn to different types of personalities in therapists, and different approaches to therapy. But how do we learn this? There are a million therapists and different kinds of therapies out there.
Sometimes we only learn this by choosing something or someone that is not a good fit at the beginning.
It's probably useful to at the least, talk about that experience with another therapist who can help direct you toward an experience that could work out for you.

The Duration and Frequency of Therapy

Therapy has the best chance of taking form and shape, through a rhythm of commitment. So ask yourself before you start, or after a trial period, if you are willing to be committed.
When I started with a therapist, it was easy, I was at rock bottom. I couldn't sink deeper. Sometimes commitment comes to that!
I think of it like the ebb and flow of a tide or a moon cycle. You explore or experience something in your therapy hour and then you have a number of days before you return, where what you have experienced might start to get integrated into your being. You might find yourself thinking, feeling, imagining, remembering and over time, choosing to explore different ways of being in the world and in relationship.
A weekly commitment is important to me.
If you decide you want to come less often over time, or when you decide to terminate, those decisions in themselves are important to talk through and work through with me.
If you do not want a long term commitment, there are therapists who practice brief therapy (more cognitive, problem solving based).
