Great to meet you!
I do great work with high achievers struggling with anxiety, complex trauma, and couples impacted by ADHD. I also work well with Highly Sensitive People, with individuals seeking integrative psychotherapy & those that prefer somatic approaches to CBT.
I am neurodivergent, LGBTQIA affiliated and affirming, poly/kink friendly, and strive to be anti-racist. I recognize that growing up identified with a minority group can create trauma even if you never experience a dramatic event.
A bit about my approach to therapy
I approach therapy holistically, bringing in awareness of the body to promote more integrated functioning. I am trained in yoga psychology and incorporate yoga interventions with clients who find this useful.
For couples impacted by ADHD, we start with psychoeducation. We build scaffolding to improve symptom management and incorporate cognitive behavioral interventions specific to ADHD-impacted couples. We work on "hot button" issues and build more emotional safety.
What you can expect from our first session
I center my clients as the experts on their lives, rather than seeing myself as the authority that you should listen to. I offer skills to make different choices, and support developing greater insight into what got you where you are and how to get where you want to go. I also offer a safe space to experience nonjudgment. My work is often experiential and action-oriented.
