When you first come in to see me, you might feel like you’re in the midst of a storm, trying to get your footing as the waves and wind challenge your balance. I’ll help you find ways to regain your balance and find some immediate relief. I’ll help you uncover and discover the patterns in your life that have been destructive or disruptive, and help you compassionately understand what is driving these patterns.
I will work with you to develop new ways of being, relating, and speaking your truth that allow you to live your most authentic life.
You are unique, so as I get to know you, I’ll offer a blend of effective techniques specifically suited to you.
I use Somatic Therapy, Mindfulness, and Self-Compassion, to help you understand the responses of your nervous system, calm your anxiety, and shift your depression. I'll help you develop inner resources and calming skills so that you can safely process painful memories or trauma with EMDR and Cognitive Behavioral therapy. Using these techniques, I'll help you embrace new, life-giving beliefs about yourself. I’m a Certified Daring Way™ facilitator, and can use the research and work of Brené Brown to help you address feelings of shame and unworthiness, develop shame resilience skills, and begin to show up in your life more authentically and courageously.
I use all of the above, along with Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, to help couples heal and strengthen their relationships.
