My Approach

I bring close to 20 years of educational experience, work with young people, and engagement with the LGBTQIA+ community to the therapeutic space. I employ an eclectic approach to my collaboration with clients:  My practice draws from narrative therapy, EMDR, CBT, DBT, self-compassion, mindfulness practices, and radical acceptance. 


And yet…what does that really mean? For starters, it means that I will work with you in a manner that fits your way of engaging with the world. For some, that means taking a more cerebral stance. For others, it means using EMDR to follow and explore feelings that are hard to define with words. It may mean using art, or talking about books, or journaling. It could mean taking breaks to tune into physical sensations and enter a space of shared meditation. But whatever approach we may take, the goal is to provide a holding space for you to explore and receive therapy in a manner that feels good to you. By working from a place of strength, we can also start to build skills in areas that are less developed. However, all of this is in the pursuit of helping you integrate more fully with yourself. 

The therapeutic alliance (the collaborative bond between therapist and client) is the biggest predictive factor of an individual’s satisfaction with their work. I believe this is more important than the style a therapist brings, or the school they went to, or any other credential they may share. I encourage you to trust yourself, and listen to your feelings when choosing a therapist.
