Introduction: HOW I CAN HELP:
I'm a licensed psychologist with fifteen years of experience helping people overcome trauma, anxiety, depression, and relationship issues. My methods are designed to get you out of your head and into your body, where deep healing takes place.
Along with body-based work, I also provide concrete and actionable steps for healing to take place between sessions. Additionally, I strive to provide culturally competent and spiritually sensitive therapy to my clients.
WHAT I CAN HELP WITH:
- Complex trauma (including sexual abuse and narcissistic abuse)
- Low self-esteem/low confidence, self-critical thoughts
- Addictive behaviors (including sex/porn addiction and co-dependency)
- Depression + grief/loss
- Lack of purpose/meaning + existential/spiritual issues
I offer intensive therapy for those who want to get to the bottom of their issues rapidly. Meeting more frequently and for longer (e.g. 2 hours) is also helpful for breaking through unconscious blocks to healing.
I offer free phone consultations to ensure that my experience and approach are right for your situation. I know finding the right help can be hard. My commitment is to show up in way that is engaged, direct, and compassionate.
NOTES ABOUT MY TRAINING:
I have extensive advanced training in ISTDP (Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy), an experiential, body-based treatment approach aimed at safely "unlocking the unconscious". This way of doing therapy can be helpful if you have tried therapy before and found that "just talking" didn't help as much as you'd hoped. If you are interest to learn more, a Google search will provide resources for you to read and determine if this treatment might be a good fit for you.
