As a counselor, I seek to provide a safe space in which clients can access their innate healing powers. I see the counseling relationship as transformative and advocate the use of curiosity and compassion in the therapeutic process. My focus is on working with clients to heal from the trauma they have experienced and the resulting dis-ease that often follows trauma: depression, anxiety, relationship struggles, and other difficulties our society labels “mental illness.” To facilitate this healing, I use a variety of approaches which allow the client to get underneath their mental chatter and access the deeper wisdom of body and soul. These techniques might include creative arts, music, movement, and mindfulness practices. I am a certified practitioner of mindfulness-based Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), an evidence-based therapy which is a gentle, yet effective way to heal trauma.
