My Approach to Helping
I believe people have the capacity for self-healing, given an environment in which their feelings are validated and in which they feel safe. I work primarily with people who have experienced trauma and believe that therapy should be a collaborative process. I include trauma specific tools, such as EMDR as well as psychoeducation to empower clients to make informed choices. I help clients understand that while they may feel crazy from the things they have dealt with, that their experiences are normal reactions to trauma.
