How I Work:

Focusing on the individual and their unique capability toward healing is the guiding approach I take in therapy. I work with great curiosity to explore the distractions and negative cycles that may be keeping you stuck. The struggle for clarity is a difficult one to navigate in isolation; together we can look at patterns and behaviors that no longer service you and gently work toward a new, more expansive pathway. The therapeutic process is one of finding balance between the emotional and rational, the mind, body and spirit then bringing that forward into our lives. Bringing meaning and integration to mind, body and spirit is the philosophy I hold in the practice of therapy.

Individual Holistic Psychotherapy:

It seems to me that in order for real change and healing to occur, the mind, body, spirit and brain must all be incorporated into the therapeutic process. Each of our stories is unique and there is no “one-size-fits-all” treatment.

            Together we can work on:

  • Identifying triggers that put you into a survival state (fight/flight/freeze/collapse), which can contribute to self-defeating patterns.
  • Exploring your relationship to your family of origin.
  • Learning your attachment style and revitalizing your relationships.
  • Developing compassion for all parts of yourself.
  • Creating resources to help calm your nervous system.
  • Loosening the grip of chronic self-judgment.
  • Healing addictive and reactive patterns.
  • Building mindfulness techniques to help you feel more grounded and present.

Family Work:

Families can benefit from therapy when they experience any stressful  event that may strain family relationships, such as financial hardship, divorce,  or the death of a loved one. In addition, it can be effective in  treating mental health concerns that impact the family as a whole, such  as depression, substance abuse, chronic illness, and food issues, or everyday concerns, like communication problems, interpersonal conflict, or behavioral problems in children and adolescents.

I work with families in an Emotionally-Focused framework, based on the work of Sue Johnson. This approach works from an attachment-based lens to help understand problematic cycles that trigger and maintain issues in the family. It then works to build interactions that that establish safer connection and a calmer, more regulated atmosphere among individuals and in the family system.

            Together we can work on:

  • Building skills for more emotional regulation and a better sense of feeling grounded.
  • Dismantling reactive negative cycles by establishing a more secure base of attachment.
  • Studying the blocks that arise in connection and support.
  • Creating an alliance through effective communication, emotional safety and bonding.

 

Trauma Informed Therapy/ Sensorimotor Psychotherapy:

Dr. Gabor Mate defines trauma as, “a psychic wound that hardens you psychologically that then interferes with your ability to grow and develop. It pains you and then you act out of the pain. It induces fear and then you are acting out of that fear. Trauma is not what happens to you, it’s what happens inside of you as a result of what happened to you.”

Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP) is a complete therapeutic modality  for trauma and attachment issues. SP welcomes the body as an integral  source of information which can guide resourcing and the accessing and  processing of challenging, traumatic, and developmental experience. SP  is a holistic approach that includes somatic, emotional, and cognitive  processing and integration.

SP enables clients to discover and change habitual physical and  psychological patterns that impede optimal functioning and well-being.  SP is helpful in working with dysregulated activation and other effects  of trauma, as well as the limiting belief systems of developmental  issues.

SP helps clients cultivate their strengths, while providing enough  challenge to stimulate growth, long lasting change, and well-being.

            Together we can work on:

  • Validating your past hurts and traumas
  • Working though internalized feelings of shame and confusion
  • Identifying and understanding the everyday triggers that put you into a state of fight/flight/freeze/collapse.
  • Healing addictive and reactive patterns
  • Understanding how to process and release traumatic memories and emotions held in the body
  • Creating resources to calm the nervous system and help deal with trauma-related symptoms
  • Alleviating the suffering from emotions like fear, shame and anger

About Me:

Since graduating from Pacifica Graduate Institute in 2015, I have been cultivating my therapeutic practices in and out of agencies. I have worked in a transitional program for young adults, AIM House, going on 6 years. The program is structured to help guide young people on garnering enough ego strength to forge a path of independence, while also staying connected and building community. I also worked with their families in assisting with the individuation process through parent coaching and extensive family systems work through an attachment-focused lens. I have been in private practice for going on 7 years. My practice encompasses work with individuals, couples and families and has included a variety of age ranges. In meeting with such an array of unique individuals and tailoring to what they need along the way, I have deepened greatly into various aspects of psychology.

Hi there! I work with children ages 0-10 and adults ages 20-60. I also work with couples around communication skills. I enjoy the variety of seeing clients online, in-person, and outdoors.

 With children, I do a 45-minute Synergetic Play Therapy session in my office or outside. Then, later in the week, I have a 15-minute phone call with their parents and caretakers to suggest ways to integrate the child’s therapy at home. This is essentially family therapy but seeing members separately. Children are more resilient than adults, so sessions usually progress faster and have results that can be seen, not just felt.

 Many people are surprised that I work with children AND adults. I like this variety in ages because I love seeing the spectrum of how people evolve. Different developmental stages bring different challenges and gifts, and all of it interests me! My work with children compliments my work with adults, as we all feel small and young at times. I meet both populations with tenderness, humor, and directness.

 Specialty Treatment Areas:

-Depression (including an overall vague feeling of something missing in life)

-Anxiety (including chronic anxiety and anxiety from specific events)

-Trauma (all kinds and feelings of overwhelm)

-Challenging Transitions (including relationships, jobs, and grieving losses)

-Women’s Issues (including motherhood, fertility issues, systemic sexism)

-Gender Identity Issues (supporting trans, nonbinary, and gender diversity)

-Parenting Difficulties (I get it! I have 2 kiddos!)

How I work:

It is my sole’s work to be a creative therapist! While talking is essential in therapy, I can offer more. With my multiple approaches, I help clients access their personal, deeper wisdom. I can use nature, art, play, body awareness, humor, and mindfulness to support adult and child clients. My goal is for my clients to leave my office feeling their center and how they belong in this world.

Together we can work on:

*Finding the gifts within your struggles

*Learning how to keep calm in anxiety producing environments

*Exploring how your past influences your present

*Creating healthy choices and habits to excel your therapy

*Identifying relationship patterns

*Revitalizing YOU

My Background:

I graduated in 2010 with a master’s degree from Naropa University in Transpersonal Psychology with a concentration in Wilderness Therapy. Since then, I have completed trainings in Hokomi, Gestalt, Grief work, Trauma, Body Focused Healing, Non-Violent Communication, Somatic Practices, Heart-Centered Meditation, Synergetic Play Therapy, EMDR, and Mother-Daughter Relationships. I have worked in therapeutic supporting roles for a variety of employers including Naropa University, Women’s Wilderness Institute, Judy’s House (in Denver), Outward Bound, and Preschools.
