My therapeutic approach is from a systemic perspective. This means that I assess my clients’ overall mental health in context, including family and culture of origin, socioeconomic factors, trauma history, and current living conditions and circumstances. Whether I am treating an individual, couple or family, relationship history is a key component of my work because none of us exist in a vacuum. My work is fully affirming on the grounds of diversity in gender and sexuality.
I have completed Level 1 training in Lifespan Integration, a gentle yet intensive body-based therapeutic tool that utilizes memory cue protocols to support clients in emotional and trauma processing.
I have a specific clinical interest in clients struggling with a sense of purpose, existential questions, and crises of culture and faith. I treat individuals seeking or leaving faith communities, processing religious trauma, and deconstructing and/or reconstructing their personal spirituality. I can incorporate a Christian perspective in therapy upon client request, and have lived experience within several denominations.
I also have specific clinical interest and training in Enneagram work.
