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.
