What to Expect in Therapy
Who I Work With:
I enjoy working with emerging adult and millennial women and gender expansive folks struggling with anxiety disorders or trauma related concerns. I specialize in treating complex and relational trauma, as well as trauma as a result of single incident interpersonal violence. I also have experience working with folks transitioning into adulthood, struggling with self-esteem, perfectionist tendencies or coping with major life change.
As a therapist my style is collaborative, compassionate and grounded in feminist theory. I firmly believe that all individuals have different and intersecting identities which impact how they experience the world; therefore, impacting their mental, emotional and physical health. As such, I provide a trauma informed, anti-racist, pro-reproductive freedom, LGBTQ+ affirming, fat positive space for clients to feel supported in. My style is eclectic however I often draw from evidence based treatments including: SAFE EMDR, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Compassion Focused Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, and Internal Family Systems Therapy. I utilize a bottom-up approach to trauma work which helps clients reconnect with their body, boundaries and biological needs.
Friends, partners, or family members may be great sources of support but are often quick to give advice or try to fix your problem. As much as you might not like to hear it—you won't find that here. I envision my role to be a non-judgmental, empathetic support which walks along side you as you do your own hard work. Along the way I will supply you with new skills and tools to help foster growth.
