What would you like to let go of? This question comes up in my work with clients, and together we identify ways to let go of old habits, difficult interpersonal patterns, and trauma.
My work is experiential — we look at whatever comes up into the room that week. At times we might do some parts work together, and for many clients we’ll use EMDR. This work involves somatic expression and mindfulness as well. I’m trained as a family therapist, and I’m always curious about what systems affect us. I work with individual clients, couples, and families, including older adolescents.
In addition to trauma and relational work, I provide psychedelic integration. How can we best prepare you for a fruitful medicine journey, and how can we consolidate gains and insights after the journey?
As a systemic therapist, I will work with clients to see how they can connect to the natural world and a sense of spirit — whatever that means to them. I received training in ecospsychology during graduate school, and with some clients we will walk around a wooded area, and for others I will write a prescription for nature bonding. My clinical work is influenced by Buddhist psychology, and I use that as a lens to help people create compassionate connection with all beings. With some clients we might take a walk on a neighborhood labyrinth.
Sustainability has always been a passion, and I have been a bicycle commuter for my entire adult life. It was important in choosing a practice space that is close to a large urban park, and is on a bus line.
