My Approach to Helping

I am comfortable working with all ages and people who identify as highly-sensitive. I encourage clients to identify how negative past experiences are creating distress in the present through symptoms of anxiety, low or unstable mood, relational or sexual issues, poor self-esteem, and body image difficulties hyper-arousal, distractibility in important functional roles, self-harming and dependent behaviors, and many more unhealthy long-term coping skills.

I support clients in this process through the use of body awareness exercises and sand tray, EMDR and TF-CBT techniques, and unconditional positive regard. Grounded in Cognitive Behavioral, Attachment, and Person-centered theories, and the Adaptive Information Processing Model.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Eating disorders and body image issues, past or current trauma experiences, relational and sexual difficulties, impulsive and risk taking behaviors, anxiety and obsessive thoughts, depression and low motivation.
