My Approach to Helping
I am a Licensed Clinical Social Worker serving teens and adults in individual and family therapy. I specialize in depression, anxiety, stress, relationship issues and trauma. I believe in client-led work where you decide what works best for you; at times I will guide you, other times stand alongside as witness to your inner work as you chart a path on a journey towards healing.
I will help you process your past and present; I will teach you coping skills, providing a variety of tools for you to try. My favorite modalities include EMDR, narrative therapy, mindfulness, somatic practices, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, art therapy, ecotherapy. I will provide a judgment-free safe space for you to tell your story. If you are suffering from trauma or addiction I highly recommend EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing).
As a yoga teacher, I understand the power of the mind-body connection and look for ways to address this in therapy. I love to be creative and think outside the box; I believe in the healing power of nature, art, music, meditationmindfulness and body-centered practices. I have extensive experience working cross-culturally with people from diverse backgrounds.
