I no longer offer individual or relationship counseling. For those seeking individual or relationship counseling,

Approach

I take an integrative approach to counseling, recognizing the interconnectedness of mind and body, as well as how historical, social, cultural, and spiritual factors shape mental health and well-being.

I aim to create a respectful, non-pathologizing, and collaborative environment in therapy that honors clients’ innate capacities for healing, growth, and empowerment. I strive to understand how dynamics of power, privilege, and oppression have shaped clients’ identities and to provide culturally affirming and inclusive care.

I’ve been influenced by a variety of psychodynamic, experiential, somatic, attachment, and trauma-informed approaches to therapy.  I’ve completed the AEDP Institute’s Level I training, the PACT Institute’s Level I & Level II trainings, over two-hundred hours of training and over three-hundred hours of teaching assistance in Hakomi-based therapy through the Hakomi Institute of Oregon, and over two-hundred hours of training and over eighty hours of teaching assistance in SE through Somatic Experiencing International.

My group therapy work is grounded in extensive postgraduate training through The Psychotherapy InstituteCenter for Group Studies and the American Group Psychotherapy Association and its affiliate societies.  I am a Certified Group Psychotherapist (CGP) through the International Board for Certification of Group Therapists.
