Many of us have been taught that who we are is not okay. Because of this we lose touch with important parts of ourselves. This can lead to feeling overwhelmed or isolated. Counseling is the process of shedding light on these unexplored areas and regaining connection to ourselves and others.
Throughout the counseling process I utilize my training in mindfulness, trauma processing, depth therapy, attachment theory, and relational/interpersonal approaches throughout the counseling process. In addition, we will look at the cultural and social context in which you live and how these impact the challenges you face. I have received specialized training for working with trauma and PTSD: Narrative Exposure Therapy (a trauma processing therapy), Acceptance and Compassion for trauma, and Somatic Resources for trauma. I welcome and work with people of all races, gender identities, ages, sexual orientations, and physical abilities. I’m committed to my own ongoing learning around biases and privilege, and how to use power in ways that support others to live and thrive in their diverse experiences.
