my approach

I use attachment-based experiential therapy -a process that focuses on emotional and somatic experience- to help you move through barriers so that you can arrive into your body and relationships with safety and connection. Together, we can explore your relationship to self and others, come to understand patterns that create stuckness, and practice new skills so you can embody insights, change, and self-belonging.

I offer a relational and collaborative approach that is guided by your specific needs.

I work with individuals and partners of all gender identities, sexual orientations, and relationship structures. I have specialized experience working with LGBTQ+, kink, and non-monogamous communities and with those exploring dynamics related to trauma, sex, gender, and sexuality.

My approach is informed by anti-oppressive values, transformative justice, disability justice, and culturally inclusive practices.

Above all, I’m dedicated to co-creating an environment of non-judgement and compassion so that your authentic healing can come forth.

my background

I feel lit up tending to the indispensable relationship between personal, relational, and collective transformation.

I entered clinical social work with a background at those intersections- community organizing, abolitionist movement building, mindfulness training, and studying bodywork for chronic pain.

I’m honored to be doing what brings me aliveness, authenticity and joy: working closely with individuals and partners to access their healing, pleasure, and transformation.

individual psychotherapy

 

We all have the innate capacity to heal. With attuned safety and support, we can come home to ourselves, allow difficult emotions to be released, and re-author old stories to create new meaning in our lives.

My work is based in Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), a therapy that centers your safety, inherent healing capacities, and our distinct relational work together. AEDP is an experiential therapy, which engages the body and somatic experience to facilitate exploration, transformation, and lasting change. 

I integrate psychodynamic, mindfulness, attachment based, and trauma centered approaches. Guided by your specific needs, I draw on approaches including polyvegal theory, solutions-focused therapy, Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT), and parts work (from Internal Family Systems).

Most importantly, theories and modalities aside– my approach is highly relational, collaborative, non-judgmental and warm.

 

 

relationship psychotherapy

 

I am passionate about supporting partners to identify and repattern “stuck” cycles, improve communication, resolve gridlock, increase secure attachment in early relationships, nourish desire in long-term relationships, and practice strategies for healing complex trauma as it emerges in the relationship.

I work with partners of all gender identities, sexual orientations, and from all relationship structures, with a focus on LGBTQ+ partners and those exploring dynamics related to gender, sexuality and sex.

I have specialized experience working with non-monogamous and polyamorous partners, whether you’re beginning to consider aspects of polyamory or have been practicing for years.

My approach is based in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) and is sex-positive and pleasure-centered.

      • Do I have out of network mental/behavioral health benefits?
      • What is my out of network deductible (if any) and has it been met by other medical expenses?
