My approach

 

Here are ways I can support you:

  • Psychodynamic: looking at how the past influences the present

  • Mindfulness and somatic: bringing awareness to the present moment, figuring out how to resource and ground in a way that feels good

  • Trauma-informed: going slow with challenging material, understanding that trauma is rooted in the body, and always seeking consent and collaboration within the therapeutic relationship

  • Social justice: bringing attention to how the forces of racism, sexism, classism and other forms of oppression stunt our full expression, and working to change those systems

  • DBT: a powerful set of tools to help self-soothe and emotionally regulate. I don't shy away from practical skills

  • Emotionally focused: rooted in the understanding of the importance of our attachment needs, and striving to increase emotionally vulnerable communication in couples

  • Structural family therapy: examining and changing toxic patterns and energy flows within couples and family systems
