WELCOME

 

I offer a relational approach, one that centers an active, collaborative process of building trust and security, creating the conditions to support your innate capacity to heal and grow.  Through this process, parts that have become stuck or split off in an attempt to stay safe and survive are welcomed back, allowing for a greater experience of freedom and aliveness.  This approach is trauma-informed, attachment-based and attends to the nervous system and somatic experience of the body.

In practice, this means engaging not only with the content of what you share, but also exploring your emotional and physical experience of what the content brings up, and what it’s like to share it with me.  It also means attending to the impact of larger systems of culture, power and intersecting forms of structural oppression on your lived experience.  I enjoy working with clients of all ages and backgrounds, offering a space of warmth, curiosity, and humor and celebrating client strengths.

I have experience working with:

 

  • Relationship struggles, such as balancing autonomy and intimacy

  • Historical and intergenerational trauma

  • Grief and loss

  • Anxiety and depression

  • Perinatal mental health (pregnancy, prenatal, postpartum)

  • Interpersonal violence and coercive control

  • Sexual trauma

  • Substance use

  • Struggles with food and body image

  • Self-harm behaviors

  • Chronic pain, health difficulties and insomnia

  • Loneliness and isolation

  • Feelings of shame, guilt, numbness, anger, or mistrust
