A Little About Me

I believe in an integral, post-modern approach to therapy that builds on the successes of conventional therapeutic methods and practices and incorporates understanding of trauma, social justice theory, somatics, attachment, neuro-diversity and more. I work with people of all ages. With adults I work in a very somatic, relational way to address issues ranging from trauma to anxiety to concerns about the world. With children, I work with issues ranging from anger to emotional regulation to ADHD and autism.

My approach is holistic and strengths-based. I work with you to find out what your goals are for therapy and work to meet them. I believe in the inherent health and wisdom of each person, whether child or adult. I believe it is important to both address the root causes of issues and work on them long-term while also providing shorter-term strategies to cope.

Especially given the challenges of the past year, I know how difficult it can be to feel at ease and grounded in our modern, capitalist society. I have been exploring the issues of suffering and well-being for over 14 years since I first began undergoing my own personal therapy and meditation practice. I come with an open, humble heart ready to help.
