My Approach


I believe in a client-centered approach to therapy that is deeply rooted in the idea that your mind and body already inherently know what they need to heal. My practice is built on foundations centered on EMDR, Polyvagal, Somatic, Play, and Art Therapies. Using these and other techniques, clients are supported in connecting with their own nervous systems; their internalized messages of safety and belonging; and the experiences, assumptions, and sensations that impact their life. In connecting back to the body, clients are invited to investigate and process unresolved “stuck points” in order to explore and release the impact of trauma on their daily lives. Treatment plans are developed to meet clients’ where they are and to support them in meeting their wellness goals.
