Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one’s being, but by integration of the contraries.
A holistic approach attends to all aspects of a person’s well-being, including mental, emotional, physical, and spiritual wellness. I help people identify their needs and bring fragmented parts of their lives into more harmony. The result is feeling more grounded in your daily life, your communities, and your larger place in the world.
Working holistically also means understanding each person's context, cultural background, and relationship with systemic power. People of all identities and expressions are welcome and celebrated in my practice.

combining and coordinating diverse elements into a whole
As an integrative therapist, I draw from multiple disciplines to weave a flexible approach tailored to your 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:
Grief and loss
