I am passionate about helping my clients overcome the obstacles in their lives that often leave them feeling stuck, helpless and disconnected. I do this through a variety of approaches. I’m holistic, looking at all aspects of your life: mind body and spirit. I also draw from Structural Family Therapy, Narrative Therapy and Attachment Models, in particular Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), to help clients recognize negative patterns, cycles or stories in their lives. I utilized EFT techniques to help individuals and couples access deeper emotions and have awareness of vulnerabilities and triggers. I am drawn to the social justice aspect of Narrative and Feminist Therapy especially within the framework of Sex Therapy and trauma Work and often implement these perspectives in session.
Another important part of my work, especially with clients who have experienced trauma or are experiencing sexual issues, is the use of mindfulness and somatic exercises that help clients shift their awareness to the present moment allowing them to be in their body, observe their feelings and emotions with curiosity and without judgment and show up authentically in their lives.
I consider therapy a collaborative journey and together we will explore your early attachments, how they play a part in who you are, and how they show up in your relationships today. I have experience working with couples and individuals experiencing communication issues, sexual issues, depression, past trauma, infidelity, sexual dysfunction and sexual and gender identity concerns.
I offer a direct, creative and compassionate therapeutic approach in a safe and nonjudgmental space.
