My Approach to Helping
Talk therapy can be helpful, but sometimes it's just not enough. Maladaptive patterns of stress, trauma, anxiety, and depression lie in our bodies. You and I will untangle these problematic patterns to get to the root of your pain together. Our sessions will allow you to metaphorically dip your toe into the pain and then always come back to safety. In this way you are challenged to grow in a slow, safe manner. I specialize in working with trauma, stress, and anxiety that you may have treated in the past, but still experience.
I have extensive experience working with individuals and groups using Somatic Experiencing and TensionTrauma Releasing Exercises (TRE). Using my intuition to guide me, I employ cognitive behavioral, mindfulness, and creative methods.
My relationship with my clients is of the utmost importance to me. I accept you for who you are and whatever you are struggling with. You can be yourself with me without fear of judgement. An intuitive, gentle, nurturing and supportive manner are some of my strengths that create a safe space for healing as you develop self-compassion and acceptance. Employing humor and lightheartedness works as a balance as we process the deeper emotions. Together, we'll develop a path so you can navigate life's transitions with more ease and acceptance.
