Approach

Psychotherapy for Adults & Couples

Trauma informed- EMDR

Compassion, Resilience, and Empowerment.

Each person has their own set of experiences that can impact their view of the world. When unprocessed, these experiences can make people feel stuck. By allowing the nervous system to safely regulate the body's response to stressors, people are able to shift unconscious internal narratives that can be held after the impact of trauma.


I utilize EMDR, which you can learn more about herehere. If you have tried verbal talk therapy and found you are looking for another approach that also involves the body, EMDR may be a good fit.


People often describe feeling:

- an emotional release

- less overwhelm to triggers

- awareness that the events happened in the past

- a sense of relief

- more empowered in future situations

Relationships

Couples therapy

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.

Holistic Psychology

Mind, Body, Spirit.

I believe in looking at multiple factors and the context of life circumstances that got you to where you are today (emotional, social, intellectual, occupational, physical, environmental, and spiritual). I am is inspired by buddhist psychotherapy and mindfulness techniques. Exploring community care practices as well as ability to sit with challenging emotions creates space for self-compassion. We can also integrate seasonal self care practices to support your mental health.

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 and connect to more perspective. Art in therapy uncovers personal resources and is another tool to being understood. No prior art experience with the arts is necessary.
