I am a Trauma-Informed clinician, this is the primary lens to my work. I also inform my practice through Attachment and Experiential theories. What this means is that I believe change happens when we are in relationship with others, change and healing happens when we can experience safety and a reparative relationship with someone else.
I value trust in a therapeutic relationship and know that it takes time to build trust.
“The person is not the problem, the problem is the problem.” -Michael White
Your story is exactly that, yours. We will work together to identify what has been keeping you in this space and discover who YOU truly are beyond the narrative, or story you have identified with until now.
"Where you look affects how you feel." -David Grand
I am a Certified Brainspotting clinician and frequently use this Brain-Body modality in sessions. We start by identifying your goal, connecting it to a feeling in your body/emotion, and finding an eye position (brain spot) to process from.

Nature-Based therapy techniques offer us the opportunity to connect with our surroundings. What I have found is that many people who have experienced trauma are disconnected from themselves and their world. Connecting to nature can allow them to discover safety and trust.
Nature therapy can be walk and talk or finding a calm and peaceful place to do sessions.
