My focus in therapy is to create a safe and warm environment for us to collaborate on your treatment goals together. My specialties include using somatic techniques to help create safety within your body and process trauma as well as giving you tools to help manage any emotion dysregulation you might be struggling with. I also utilize a great deal of attachment and inner child work to repair any core wounds that may be impacting your current relationships.
I firmly believe that you are the captain of the ship, navigating its course, and I, as the therapist, serve as a dutiful co-captain. I will always show up for you and create a nonjudgmental space for your feelings.
