Psychotherapy with Children, Adolescents, & Adults
Pronouns: They, Them, Theirs
I acknowledge that I am a settler practicing healing methods on stolen land.
I specialize in helping people safely explore and resolve the consequences of interpersonal, systemic and cultural trauma. In order to do this, I draw from the knowledge of interpersonal neurobiology, Hakomi method, play therapy, training in yoga as taught by the Krishnamacharya lineage, and cultural somatics all delivered from a culturally nuanced approach.
I have experience treating children, adolescents, and adults who identify as QTBIPOC and have a range of concerns, including anger, substance use/abuse, domestic violence, anxiety, depression and mood disorders.
I have a background in various somatic practices, including 1000+ hours of training as a yoga instructor working with kids. I’ve also completed two trainings in Hakomi therapy, with enthusiasm to learn more.
I believe that the most effective intervention is safety and connection. I enjoy working with people of all ages to integrate life’s little joyful moments, which I see as being crucial establishing the inner resource needed to weather the storms life throws our way. I aim to help people recover the lost capacity to take in joy and ease by cultivating awareness and connection. I see that life is about embracing the emergent nature of change.
I am an MSW intern supervised by Rosemarie Hemmings, LCSW.
I look forward to working with you!
