Holistic treatment for mind, body, soul, and spirit
I draw from a humanistic, attachment, family systems, and existential lens when I work with clients. I also use the latest advances in neuroscience. What that essentially means is that I value the human experience and the uniqueness that we all bring to the world. There is no one on this planet that is like you. And yet even with your uniqueness/differences, we have similarities that connect us such as joy, sadness, or grief....that make us human. As I have worked with client's I have realized that emotions and trauma are stored in the body. My approach focuses on looking at the whole person and integrating mind, body, soul, and spirit. They are all connected and when you integrate these parts of you, deeper healing can take place.
My approach to therapy is also experiential. I tend to use creative approaches such as art, poetry, music, movement, nature, breathe work, and mindfulness.
I enjoy working with adult clients of all ages that are in different stages of life transition and are wanting to strengthen their relationship with themselves and with others. Other areas of speciality include: Highly Sensitive People (HSP's), creatives, existential and spiritual issues, identity, self-worth, burnout, type A professionals, grief/loss, and trauma.
I am trained in Lifespan Integration Levels 1, 2, 3, and 4 which is a powerful new treatment that can heal early attachment trauma and complex PTSD. I also have Adult Attachment training (DARE), Emotionally-focused Therapy (EFT) training, Gottman Level 1, Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy training through Polaris Insight, and experiential training in writing and art.
