I take a relational holistic approach to therapy. I utilize the theories of Internal Family Systems (IFS), Somatic Experiencing, and Accelerated Dynamic Experiential Psychotherapy (AEDP) looking at how we relate to ourselves and our bodies. I utilize this in all therapies with individuals, couples, and teens. I also am trained in Eye Movement Reprocessing Therapy (EMDR). I utilize this in my work with trauma. I integrate my therapeutic modalities as well using IFS, Somatic Experiencing, and AEDP in conjunction with EMDR. I want to tend to the whole person and experience of my clients. I know that safety and trust must be established before deeper work can continue. With this, I give my client’s agency to choose the pace of the sessions knowing that agency is vital to the establishment of safety. I work towards compassion and curiosity with every client, never leaning towards shame. When I challenge, I challenge with compassion.
