My approach to therapy is relational, non-judgemental, collaborative, and engaged. I'm not simply curious about what my clients want to experience less of (i.e., anxiety, depression, conflict), I also hope to discover what they want to see more of (i.e. connection, resilience, meaning, to name a few…), and what makes them truly feel alive. My lens is systemic -- I look at how we affect and are affected by the systems we function within: our close relationships, families, the socio-political climate, the natural world, and especially our relationship with ourselves. I am trained in EMDR and Somatic Experiencing and find them to be gentle but effective ways of working with trauma and other past hurt. I also enjoy helping clients learn how our nervous systems operate, how that affects emotional and interpersonal well-being, as well as how to interrupt habitual stress responses before we get derailed by them.
