My background includes sexuality education, wilderness- and adventure-therapy, oncology grief counseling, residential psychiatric treatment, and visual arts. My approach to therapy is holistic, warm, trauma-informed, non-pathologizing, and relational. I aim to create a space in which you can show up fully as yourself, and I engage actively and collaboratively in sessions. We will explore, question, and get curious together. While developing trust takes time, I ask clients to be candid, open, and truthful with me, and in turn, I endeavor to take a transparent approach to therapy with my clients.
I draw from a variety of psychotherapy modalities and frameworks, including Polyvagal Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Mindfulness, Feminist Therapy, and Narrative Therapy. Together we will establish your goals for therapy, and we will check in regularly to assure you feel satisfied with your progress towards the changes you are working on.
