My Approach to Helping

Do you have an adept ability to flex and bend to the needs of your environment? Do you struggle to identify and prioritize your own needs? Are your goals and dreams collecting dust while you compulsively tend to those around you? Codependency often develops in the personality structures of people who are raised in chaotic and neglectful environments as children. A finely tuned childhood survival strategy, it leaves many in adulthood feeling a complex array of emotions in their adulthood: emptiness, resentment, loneliness, creative atrophy, and confusion. It's automatic and deeply painful.
I blend a number of therapeutic orientations to help you renegotiate your preoccupation and obsession with others, and bring that energy home to yourself.

More Info About My Practice

My initial goal as a therapist is to help you mitigate any overwhelming mental and emotional symptoms you are experiencing. I use Somatic and Experiential interventions to help resolve traumatic patterning. Talk Therapy alone, although very helpful, rarely supports a body-mind that is stuck in chronic hyper or hype arousal (anxiety and depression).

An important note: I am white bodied. I grew up in a multi-ethnic, multi-racial environment that was overtly racist, unlike Portland, which has a different flavor of covert racism that I witness both baffle and deeply harm people in the BIPOC community. I am genuinely attuned to these issues and do my best to hold a safe space for that reality.
