MY APPROACH

My mind-body-soul approach allows me to support clients in building a deeper relationship with themselves.

Through our work together, my clients experience a shift in mindset that allows them to gain a more compassionate view of themselves and others, and embody their most authentic selves. Clients often say that it’s like going to a mental gym –– a gym that helps you build the muscles you need to be the most confident, compassionate, and capable version of yourself.

MODALITY HIGHLIGHTS

Spa

Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR)

Phased, focused approach to treating trauma and other symptoms by reconnecting the client in a safe way to the images, self-thoughts, emotions, and body sensations associated with the trauma.

Coconuts

The Flash Technique (FT)

Recently developed evidenced-based therapeutic intervention for reducing the disturbance associated with traumatic or other distressing memories. FT is a minimally intrusive option that does not require you to consciously engage with the distressing memory. As an adjunct to the EMDR preparation phase, it makes it possible to process memories that would otherwise be intolerable or overwhelming. Learn more.

Relaxing in Bath

Somatic Experiencing (SE)

After experiencing something painful, being in the body can be difficult. Therefore clients may need to actively re-learn how to feel sensations in the body and discern between danger and discomfort to occupy the body again. SE is a body-centered approach that takes a look at bodily energy created by trauma and seeks to repair and complete the natural cycle our bodies possess to release it. This approach can be helpful for challenging symptoms of PTSD and trauma such as dissociation and hyper-vigilance.

Journaling

Internal Family Systems (IFS)

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an integrative approach that explores the mind as made up of multiple parts along with a person’s true self. Each part has its own sub-personality with its own roles. IFS aims to heal wounded parts and promote internal connection and harmony by bringing the mind back into balance.

AREAS I CAN HELP WITH

Our first session will be a great opportunity to determine if we are a good fit for each other and your goals. In addition to providing referrals for anything that would fall outside of those realms. If we are a good fit for each other and would like to proceed with recurring therapy sessions, we can discuss this during our intake session as well.
