Therapeutic Approach

I favor a mind-body-spirit approach to healing.  I have advanced training in Somatic Experiencing, a body-based trauma therapy that creates emotional safety.  I use Narrative Therapy because it’s such an effective way of reframing the toxic messages into healthier ones.  I also use Solution-Focused Therapy because it supports clients learning how to create their own pathways to healing.  I use elements of Family Therapy, Art Therapy, Group Therapy, Psychodrama, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy.  My shamanic training supports incorporating Spirit into my work and provides a strong foundation for working with metaphors and rituals.  I do general psychotherapy and work with LGBTQAI issues.

My practice integrates my experience and training in ways that creates a safe, supportive space for my clients.
