I work with each human is an individual with the understanding that we all processes our own unique way. I am trauma focused and person centered in my approach. I have been trained in and utilize a variety of approaches including compassion focused, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT), sensorimotor, mindfulness based, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, and Solution Focused Therapy. I incorporate a unique blend of these approaches to benefit each individual client’s needs and processing ability.
I enjoy getting outdoors in a variety of ways. I enjoy gardening, hiking, backpacking, and mountain biking, and just exploring in general with my partner and dog. I enjoy making art, primarily oil painting and reading.
I have a strong interest in higher education and enjoy working with those participating in college/university. I enjoy working with young adults on self-discovery and individuation.
I am trained in Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an intervention for processing and deactivating trauma. I have a passion for supporting individuals on their journey of healing. I utilize sensorimotor, mindfulness, and somatic awareness to help unlock the trapped memories that are leading to distress in an individual’s life to help them live in the present moment
I have experience and passion working with individuals experiencing loss of faith and helping them create a new sense of identity to feel more whole and complete.
