About My Clients
It is my hope to build a trusting and safe space that you may find as a resource in your life. It is my job to work in collaboration to gain an understanding of and honor how one's experience, culture, and environment have played into current beliefs. As well as how the systems we all live among impact us. I love offering assessment appointments and letters for gender affirming care to reduce gatekeeping. It is a pleasure to celebrate and affirm the folks I’m privileged to work with.
My Background and Approach
My therapeutic approach emphasizes a practical attitude that offers results by offering Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) therapy, Cognitive Behavior Therapy (CBT), Ego States Model, and Internal Family Systems (IFS) skills and principals from an attachment based lens. I offer education and resources to address core issues, practice skills to strengthen mindful emotional responses, promote mood management, and offer strategies to shift the way challenging memories can be stored in the brain. It is my priority to foster awareness and guidance thought processing past experiences that may inhibit growth to be able to show up for ourselves in a compassionate way. As well as expanding on individualized intuitive self healing practices that one has used in the past to advance towards thriving.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
It is one of my greatest joys in life to journey with my clients to gain a deeper understanding of oneself and work to gain a feeling of thriving in life as opposed to surviving. I truly believe in the underlying strength and ability of all humans to cultivate daily victories that foster growth and healing. I strive to foster a grounded presence that encourages one to feel respected, safe, supported, celebrated, and capable of tackling life's challenges. Being guided to offer therapy and working among the healing professions was fueled through my own personal journey. Meditation, yoga, and therapy allowed me to heal starting from within. I felt the benefits ripple out to those i'm in relationship with and recognized how much I loved connecting with others on a similar journey. I have sat in the other side of the Therapy room and was inspired by some clinicians and saw gaps in what was being offered by others.
