ABOUT

I use an approach to therapy based on compassion, empathy, and integration. I am client-centered, and combine classic psychodynamic techniques with approaches from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Trauma-Informed Therapy, Family Systems Theory, Feminist Theory, and Nonviolent Communication.

My methodology is informed by social work's tenet that we are constantly being both acted upon by our environment and acting upon our environment. I believe in the wisdom of the body, how our bodies hold trauma, and in learning to take note of our bodies' communications. I help clients to better identify thought processes which lead to negative emotions, and to intervene on their own behalf. Last, I assist clients in uncovering their own needs and desires, and finding their voice to advocate for themselves from a place of strength.
