About My Clients

As a survivor of childhood trauma, you often struggle with overwhelming emotions that make it feel as though life is out of control. You feel tired all the time; like no matter how much sleep you get, it's never enough. Speaking of "enough," you feel like YOU'RE not enough - good enough, smart enough, attractive enough... the list goes on and on. You long put the darkness behind you, to feel safe and to live a life full of connection and balance. I can help you find your light.

My Background and Approach

My counseling style is person-centered and grounded in psychodynamic theory - which means that I am interested in how your past experiences have influenced the way you look at yourself, the world around you, and your place in the world, and that my role as a counselor is to help you find solutions to your struggles that already exist within you. My priority is to create an atmosphere that promotes growth and positive change for you, and it is my goal to structure sessions in a way that helps you feel physically and emotionally safe. Although I use a variety of techniques to meet the unique needs of each client, I primarily use a combination of somatic and cognitive techniques. I have been trained in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, which is a body-based talk therapy blending cognitive and emotional approaches, verbal dialogue, and physical interventions to address the neurobiological effects of trauma.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that people are inherently good and that the environments in which we experience life shape who we become. I also believe that it is entirely possible to change the parts of ourselves that no longer serve us well. I believe that none of us is "broken" and that as long as we are still living, healing is possible.
