My Approach to Helping

You may be coming to therapy feeling alone or overwhelmed while facing a major life transition, relationship challenge, depression, anxiety, grief, or loss. You may want to heal old trauma, change negative thought patterns, and break free of self-doubt. Or you may be feeling ready for deeper personal and spiritual growth. I support clients with these and many other issues in a warm, nurturing, non-judgmental way, informed by over 10 years of psychotherapy experience and a lifetime of dedicated spiritual practice. 

My speciality is working with people who seek not only healing and balance but also richer meaning in their lives. I use a blend of practical, evidence-based, and depth-oriented approaches including: Attachment-Focused EMDR, CBT, Mindfulness, Somatic Psychotherapy, and Eco-Depth Psychotherapy. You could also describe my work as humanistic, trauma-informed, relational, emotion-focused, and client-centered.

I believe that therapy begins with the creation of a container of safety and trust. From this place, we can invite the unheard, misunderstood, exiled, or wounded parts of your being into awareness, welcoming them with love and respect. I have a strong commitment to the collaborative process of therapy, and a belief that mutual feedback and checking in on your goals regularly can help therapy progress more effectively. With all clients, I give invitations to practices, exercises, or experiments to explore in-between sessions, such as journaling, trying out new ways of being in the world, tracking thought patterns, meditation, or invitations to explorations with nature. I have a strong belief that therapy works best when it is a full commitment to a process, not just an hour a week in a therapy session.

My Therapy Focus

I believe our most challenging moments can be sacred doorways to transformation. We each have a deep inner wisdom and tremendous power can be found when we connect to this. My approach in therapy honors this wisdom on all levels - body, mind, and spirit. I also believe it is vital to reconnect as a part of the living system of nature, and through this wisdom, reclaim our true sense of belonging and humanity.

I believe our beings are always moving towards balance & integration. The work of re-patterning outdated protection and management strategies we've understandably built up, but that no longer serve us, allows us to finally be able to say yes to our full, authentic self. I work with each of my clients from the perspective of their inherent wholeness, beyond any symptoms or wounding. This is a positive and life-affirming approach.
