as i am, then i can change.” -carl Rogers

You Are Your Medicine

We all have the capacity to move toward wholeness. It is our innate healing intelligence that guides us there. Sometimes we just need a little help in learning how to listen, sense, and (re)connect with it. As your psychotherapist I am here to help you access your inner healing intelligence so you can move toward your goals to a more fulfilling life. I believe the therapy process begins with curiosity, and is a process of being open to discovery. Being curious about yourself in your present moment experience leads to discovering more about who you are at your deepest, most truest level. As your psychotherapist i am honored to assist you in moving through and processing pain, grief and unresolved traumas to help you in your discovery process, in the re-covery of your deepest and most authentic self. As a Certified Integrative Body Psychotherapist I support you in doing this by helping you to recognize your body as a map of your psyche, by integrating mindfulness and somatic awareness, and by tracking and tending to your nervous system state and needs.

Additionally In my work with individuals I am very relationally oriented in an empowering, kind, and authentic way. As my individual client, not only will I offer you a safe space to explore and address what brought you to therapy, I invite and support additional emotional development through the specific lens of acknowledging the client-therapist relationship. As our therapeutic alliance builds, thoughts and feelings about our interactions will inevitably arise. Processing feelings related to the therapeutic relationship can be an opportunity to gain more insight into yourself, and deepen your sense of safety and trust in our work together. This can support you in your therapy journey as you move towards your goals.
