Psychotherapy for Adults, Adolescents, & Couples
Mind, Body, Spirit.
I believe in an integrative approach, addressing the whole person and the context of life circumstances. I am is inspired by buddhist psychotherapy and mindfulness techniques. By exploring self-care as well as ability to sit with challenging emotions, there is space for self-compassion.
Creative Arts Therapy
Improve self expression
The creative process is used in therapy to bring new insights through metaphor. This might include art for personal expression, lyric analysis, movement, or role-play. Research has shown that art in therapy accesses a part of our brain that is not met purely by language. Art in therapy uncovers personal resources and is another tool to being understood. No prior art experience with the arts is necessary.
Esther Perel states, "the quality of our relationships determines the quality of our lives". I support couples to explore relational patterns, communication, and emotional vulnerability for deeper intimacy. Couples therapy is a space to feel heard, seen, and understood as well as identify ways to improve the relationship moving forward.
Trauma informed Care
Compassion, Resilience, and Empowerment.
Each person has their own set of experiences that can impact their view of the world. When these go unprocessed, it can make people feel stuck. I provide a validating environment to be heard and understood. By exploring safely and reframing, people are able to address unconscious internal narratives after traumatic events.
