My Approach to Helping

My practice is a welcoming and inclusive environment. I provide a non-judgmental and empathetic space to support discussing challenging and often taboo subjects, allowing you to address the difficult or traumatic parts of your experiences in the world. I offer support and acceptance for what each person brings to counseling and what their needs are. I believe that every challenge is an opportunity to grow and connect with ourselves. Together, I hope to support my clients to develop a new relationship with themselves, overcome obstacles, and heal the parts of themselves that have been wounded.

I use neuroscience and evidence-based research to inform my somatic approach including eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR), sensorimotor psychotherapy, and mindfulness. I consider the importance of felt experiences and how they impact you, engaging the power of mindfulness, or the practice of self-awareness, which builds bridges in different parts of the brain and allows for new possibilities in emotional patterns and access to new choices. In sessions, I actively incorporate awareness of the body, targeting the habits of physical action, autonomic dysregulation, and posture. By addressing the physical, as well as the psychological effects of adverse experiences on the mind and body, I help clients work with the past and face challenges in the present.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

Are you looking for real change? I provide personalized counseling to address your specific needs and engage in more than talking to help you meet your goals.

Through our work together we can:

- Cultivate awareness of the patterns that are causing you difficulties
- Begin to relate to those patterns in a new way
- Heal the root causes of the patterns that hold you back
- Create new paths and see new options moving forward
- Release past limitations and step into your potential

Importantly, this isn't just about learning skills or techniques (I've got those too!). Therapy is about diving deep into your healing from the inside out.
