What does a first session with you look like?

You can expect a collaborative experience whereby you and I work together to meet your goals. I love empowering clients by building awareness and insight into their bodies, thinking, and emotions. My clients have reported improved self-awareness, compassion for themselves/others, improved ability to trust themselves/others, and less distress/vividness surrounding painful experiences processed in sessions.

What is your style/approach to therapy?

I use mindfulness-based and trauma-informed techniques to guide my care. Treatment methods vary between my clients based on their needs and comfort levels. My work operates from polyvagal theory, attachment theory, somatic work, ego state work, and eye movement desensitization and reprocessing (EMDR) among others. If you are familiar with these methods and jam with them, welcome! If these methods seem unfamiliar to you, fret not--My job is to offer information and research so you can make the most informed decision regarding your care.
