Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one’s being, but by integration of the contraries.
— Jung

A holistic approach attends to all aspects of a person’s well-being, including mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness. I help clients identify their needs and bring fragmented aspects of their lives into more cohesion. The result is feeling more grounded in your daily life, your communities, and your larger place in the world. People of all identities and expressions are welcome and celebrated in my practice, and I know that systemic and power imbalances have a direct impact on our mental and emotional health.

 

 

holistic:

characterized by the treatment of the entire person

 
 

integrative:

combining and coordinating diverse elements into a whole

 

As an integrative therapist, I draw from multiple disciplines to weave a flexible approach tailored to each client’s needs:

  • Mindfulness - attending to the present moment brings new awareness and usable information

  • Somatic Psychology - observing and engaging with emotions as they occur in the body unlocks healing potential

  • Neuroscience - understanding how the brain and nervous system work sheds new light on old patterns

  • Psychodynamic (Insight) Psychotherapy - our past experiences impact our present situation

  • Attachment Theory - how we connect with others is shaped by our earliest relationships

  • Internal Family Systems (IFS) - each of us has inner “parts” that can be in harmony or conflict

  • Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR) - evidence-based treatment of trauma and PTSD

In addition to anxiety and trauma, I also work with:

  • LGBTQ issues

  • Depression

  • Grief and loss

  • Life transitions
