ABOUT MY PRACTICE

ABOUT ME
MY PRIMARY APPROACHES

I spent much of my childhood and early twenties in a deep freeze - unable to access joy, presence, or deep connection. It took ten years of training in psychology and social work to find the roadmaps that helped me to access my body, my self, and (most unexpectedly) my spirituality.

 

I believe that by learning to simply be with ourselves and our bodies in each moment, we can discover the power of and possibility in our conscious, subconscious, and unconscious choices.

My work is non-hierarchical and process (rather than outcome) oriented. I combine my professional training with my years of personal growth and therapeutic work. 

I am white, queer, and I identify with masculine, feminine, and non-binary genders. I believe that it is my life's work to foster my own and others' growth and well-being.​

  • Mindfulness (developing conscious awareness of the present moment, minimizing judgment towards oneself and others)

  • Somatics & Embodiment (connecting with sensations in our bodies in order to: build trust and empathy with oneself, clarify our needs and desires, turn towards what we care about individually and collectively, and set boundaries)

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (building on mindfulness practices to better connect with one’s conscious intentions and make more meaningful and aligned decisions)

  • Attachment Theory (learning how our early relationships with caregivers inform and impact our relationships in adulthood)

  • Internal Family Systems (getting to know and then work with the protective and younger parts of ourselves to better understand our own patterns and motivations)

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (recognizing one’s thought patterns, shifting the way one thinks about their life or specific situations)

  • Polyvagal Theory (understanding how our nervous system impacts our mental and emotional states)
