Therapeutic Services and Approach
I am a relational therapist. This means that I believe that we are all wired for connection and it is through safe relationships that emotional healing can occur. By cultivating authentic connection, in a safe and confidential space we are able to explore the unattended or bottled-up parts of you that may be laced with shame, confusion and self-judgment.
My method of therapy is one of guided self-discovery and understanding through experimental and mindfulness-based approaches. This method allows for the unique possibility of mind-body integration that leads to lasting healing and continual growth. My work is heavily influenced by interpersonal neurobiology, somatic psychotherapy, mindfulness, and attachment theory.
I have experience and familiarity with the unique challenges that members of the LGBTQ+ community often face. Despite the growing appearance of cultural acceptance of diverse sexual, romantic and gender identifications, systemic discrimination and oppression persist and LGBTQ+ individuals continue to be at a much higher risk of suicidal ideation and self-harm.
Whether you are seeking therapy for issues associated with your sexual, romantic, or gender identity or for concerns related to your mental health and wellbeing, I offer a therapeutic environment that is not dictated by heteronomativity.
Meditation, yoga, and breathing exercises are all approaches and insights used in mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT), which combines the already-effective insights and approaches of cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). People are encouraged to develop a greater sense of awareness as their thoughts and emotions occur, so they don’t feel controlled by them. These strategies help people avoid negative emotions and actions that result from automatic thoughts. In addition to treating recurrent depression and relapse into depression, mindfulness training has been proven effective for treating mood disorders, anxiety disorders, sleep disorders, and chronic pain, as well as other mood disorders.
Group Yoga Therapy
Research increasingly suggests that yoga is not only physically beneficial but it also helps to rebuild healthy neuropathways in our brain that have been affected by trauma.
I offer a 1 on 1 yoga practice where we can begin exploring how belief systems and traumas are held in the body, below the level of conscious awareness, through dialog and supported postures.
