My Approach to Helping
I am a holistic psychotherapist and energy worker. I specialize in working with people who are struggling with anxiety, depression, and PTSD. I love to guide people into a deeper relationship with their own sense of resource, capacity, and joy!
I can help you to develop deeper and more satisfying relationships, strengthen your contact with nourishing spiritual resource, come home to your body with love and acceptance, access the energy and power you need to create what you want in your life
More Info About My Practice
I have a relational and collaborative approach to therapy. I commit to showing up with as much transparency and integrity as possible in our work together because I believe that trust is the foundation of a healthy therapeutic relationship.
My work is integrative of mind, body, and spirit because I understand that we are multi-dimensional beings and believe that the process of transformation involves all aspects of who we are. I also have a social justice orientation that addresses the social conditioning which contributes to our personal and collective suffering.
Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With
I work with individual adults and couples from a variety of gender identifications, sexual orientations, and ethnic backgrounds.
I can help people struggling with the following issues: anxiety and depression, grief and loss, addiction and recovery, healing from trauma, relationship and family issues, and personal growth and development.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
You might come to therapy for a variety of reasons ranging from personal growth and development to addressing serious illnesses such as Depression and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I will work with you to identify the root cause of the patterns that are creating disease and disharmony in your life. We will work together to increase your connection to internal and external resources to support you through the process of transforming old ways of being that are no longer serving you. You will begin to develop a more profound sense of stability within yourself that can bring you a greater sense of ease, freedom, and fulfillment in your life.
Couples therapy can help get to the heart of the issues and give you the tools you need to address the conflicts that arise in a relationship by helping you to understand your triggers, improve communication, build trust, and reconnect intimately with your partner. I work with couples to develop empathy and insight in a relationship with one another while normalizing and supporting individual identities and needs. I help couples to rebuild intimacy by guiding them through somatic practices aimed at developing sensitivity and attunement to one another. I teach couples to listen and communicate from the heart moving from defensiveness to compassion through self-awareness.
