How I work with clients
I work with clients by meeting them where they are. From there, we explore what in their past has led them to where they are today, and how the past and its influence on their mind and body may be keeping them stuck. We work to resolve these experiences and pain so that they may continue to grow and change in the ways that they desire. I am an active participant in therapy – engaged in a co-created dialogue and sometimes offering feedback, suggestions, or just the space to be with what is coming up. I also find humor to be an important tool, so we may find ourselves laughing together.
My training foundation as a marriage and family therapist centered on family systems therapies, which help me understand complex challenges from a relational and holistic perspective. This foundation also taught me how to be a collaborative therapist – one who believes that clients are the experts on themselves and have inner healing wisdom that we discover together. I have built on that foundation by utilizing theories such as interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, acceptance and commitment therapy, and others that help clients understand the mind-body connection.
I offer ketamine-assisted therapy in two formats: in my private practice, we will work with sublingual ketamine; I also work at an infusion clinic. You can choose your preferred route of administration and setting. I also offer preparation and integration for those seeking ketamine treatment at a separate clinic.
