My clients are people who want to heal and grow and often are working through big life transitions. People who have had experiences that cause an inner struggle but don't want to live in that struggle. Who want to be free to color outside the lines. People who want to untangle and say goodbye to the old stuff to make plenty of space to create the new.
My Background and Approach
My specialty is trauma. Both the big obvious traumas and the less recognizable slow drip of hurts that build up over our lifetimes. The therapies and techniques I use are generally those that have had a significant impact on my own life. EMDR was the most profound change agent, so it is my primary healing tool. I also weave in IFS (internal family systems) and inner child work. I encourage mindfulness and meditation to help clients regulate the nervous system - which is really the key to all healing. I also use some CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy). I find the Enneagram to be super helpful for people to see themselves more clearly and be more intentional about areas where there is room for growth. I believe the energy we carry and cultivate is a powerful force in our lives. My desire is to help all people see life as an adventure to be lived rather than a series of problems to overcome.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe in providing a safe space for all humans and that we all deserve the opportunity to become the best version of us - on our own terms. I believe that love expands us, our lives, our communities our world, and that fear contracts - it shrinks and squeezes us, our lives, our community, our world.
