My Approach to Helping
Clients come to me because they feel anxious, overwhelmed, lost, empty, and numb - like they’ve lost part of themselves. They’ve often experienced trauma, whether from abuse, oppression, or both. They may be coping with overwhelming spiritual experience or conflict in their spiritual community, and not know where to turn. I can understand the ways trauma can seem to take over your life, and how spiritual experiences and communities can also bring up disillusionment, pain, and overwhelm.
Therapy can be more than a place to just talk - it can be a place to reclaim your wholeness from trauma and abuse; to build a safe and trusting relationship with your body; to discover your self through art and music; and to heal your spirit through grounded, clear connection. Using a holistic blend of different modalities, we can bring healing to all the parts of you. I offer talk therapy, expressive arts therapy, depth hypnotherapy, shamanic counseling, and somatic ecotherapy. These practices give space for our depth, for what is hard to put in to words, and for our full aliveness. Together we'll have the opportunity to explore deep body awareness and mindfulness, arts experiences such as listening to music, drawing, or journal writing, guided visualizations and depth hypnotherapy, applied shamanic counseling, and integrative body practices. You decide what modalities you are comfortable exploring - this is your space!
