My Approach to Helping
I support folx to heal deep emotional wounds that come from past anxiety, trauma, stress and help cultivate, listen to their inner voice as their inner compass. I offer individual sessions in person and online (please inquire about current COVID protocols and if in-person sessions are currently being held).
My approach is holistic and eclectic, often pulling from the following therapeutic modalities to support folx: mindfulness, breath awareness, body-awareness embodiment somatic Brainspotting, trauma-informed, connection between thoughts- emotions- actions. I'm also versed with autoimmune issues, gut issues, and chronic illness. I am not a ‘purist’ in my approaches, as I weave and pull from my experience education as I see fit in the therapeutic healing space.
My biggest asset is to ‘hold space’ for you so that you safely feel seen, heard, and validated. I am gentle, yet direct, a balance between holding you accountable and providing nurturing. I have a keen ability to explain complicated things into easy to understand concepts while pointing out overarching patterns or belief systems. I am not a highly structured therapist, instead I like to follow the flow of the conversation and explore where that leads us.
My general goal for folx is to help them identify what they need so that they are able to continue on their healing journey, eventually, without my support. I do this by helping you to cultivate self-awareness and expose you to a variety of coping skills. I am LGBTQ affirming, anti-racist, and inclusive in my approach. I have direct experience with xenophobia neo-racism and also use intersectionality in my approach.
