About My Clients

I enjoy working with adult individuals and couples. My clients include people people who identify throughout the LGBTQ+ spectrum and with a wide range of relationship practices. I have lived and taught English in Ecuador and I enjoy working with clients with Latin American roots (and other cultures as well!)

My Background and Approach

Clients often come to me because they feel either numb or overwhelmed - the traditional coping skills they have been using are no longer working. If this describes you, you are not alone! Lots of people have experienced this from time to time. Perhaps you were raised in family that didn't encourage emotional expression, or (in the case of many men, they were actively encouraged to suppress it) Through an approach that integrates mind and body, I can help you tap into the wisdom that is already inside of you to manage these emotions better. I enjoy integrating Somatic Experiencing to help clients release stress and trauma from the body. I have advanced training in Emotionally Focused therapy, an evidence-based therapy that I use for working with couples.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that humans have an innate capacity for resilience. Trauma or adverse experiences open up opportunities for tremendous growth - I am constantly amazed by the positive resilience I've witnessed in clients throughout our work together.
