Greetings! Thank you for your interest in learning more about collaborating with me. I have provided information below, on my theoretical orientation and areas of specialization. Please feel free to message me with any questions, or schedule a 10-minute phone consultation. Sending well wishes your way!
I work together with individuals who are curious; curious about their patterns, curious about the possibility of relief, of healing, of strengthening, and of social connectedness. Life is full of overwhelming experiences that can translate to distressing levels of sadness, anxiety, anger, regret, shame, disappointment, indecision and confusion. Together, we will explore the unique features and drivers of such challenges, and in doing so, cultivate capacity for long-lasting change.
I approach my clients from a Strengths-Based lens, and use a variety of techniques informed by Polyvagal Theory and the Adaptive Information Processing Model (AIP). I specialize in trauma recovery, and use the technique of EMDR to address a wide variety of overwhelming life experiences.
I am keenly aware of how daunting it can be to find a new therapist. The saturation can overwhelm and leave one feeling that the right fit may be out of reach. For this reason, I offer no-cost, 10-minute phone consultations, to give you the opportunity to determine whether my style and approach best meet your needs. I look forward to hearing from you!
I explicitly and publicly affirm my identity as an anti-racist mental health provider.
I am committed to anti-racism being reflected in the experiences between me and my clients.
I am committed to the continuous examination of my privilege, and to identifying, owning and correcting my personal biases.
I am committed to strategies that dismantle racism within all aspects of my professional and personal life.
