My Approach to Helping
Ultimately, I believe that we are all simply human, striving to live the best life we can live in a beautiful but challenging world. I practice with this mindset, and the belief in our innate ability to heal ourselves with the right guidance. My therapeutic approach is warm, compassionate, and client centered. I believe that my client's are the experts in their own lives and that they alone hold the answers within. It can be difficult to find this path, and to learn how to get out of our own way... but with the right support, the possibilities are endless.
More Info About My Practice
In addition to traditional psychotherapy, I offer a therapeutic modality called Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), the use of ketamine as a complement to psychotherapy. I deliver KAP in my practice in partnership with an organization called Journey Clinical, which has a specialized medical team that determines eligibility for KAP, prescribes the ketamine, & supports us in monitoring outcomes.
If you would like to explore the possibility of working with me on KAP, please reach out to discuss eligibility and next steps.
I also offer a polyvagal based intervention called Safe and Sound. The Safe and Sound Protocol (SSP) is an evidence-based listening therapy designed to reduce sound sensitivities and improve auditory processing, behavioral state regulation, and social engagement behaviors through filtered music. As a practical application of Polyvagal Theory, the SSP acts as a non-invasive, acoustic vagal nerve stimulator, helping to re-tune the nervous system to better support connection, collaboration and resilience.
The SSP involves listening to specially filtered music through headphones alongside a provider, in-person or remotely. Suitable for children and adults, the SSP has demonstrated benefits for individuals with trauma, anxiety, sensory processing differences and
