Licensed Clinical Social Worker
Certifications and/or training: Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy
I’ve understood therapy as a process to gain a deeper understanding of and compassion towards ourselves. In turn, we can become better equipped to engage authentically and compassionately in our relationships and communities. I join the Grief Recovery Center team with a personal and professional understanding of how grief and loss can impact mental health and identity.
Although grief can take many forms, I think it is an experience that joins us together as we all move through change, transformation, and loss in this life. I feel honored to hold space for the myriad of feelings that arise amid grief, and I hope to help my clients feel supported in their grieving processes. Beyond grief and loss, my clinical interests include relational and attachment-focused therapy, PTSD, eating disorders, family therapy, and issues related to gender identity and sexuality.
In my therapeutic practice, I draw from training in evidence-based modalities such as EMDR, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Somatic Experiencing, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Emotion Focused Family Therapy, and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy. I aim to integrate insight-based, traditional talk therapy with neurobiological and somatic approaches such as EMDR. This way, my clients and I can work with the mind and body as we progress toward their therapeutic goals.
Although there are some overarching similarities in my treatment approach, I hold in mind the complexity and unique needs of each client I work with. I hope to cultivate a therapeutic environment that is relational, flexible, and collaborative—a work in progress. Perhaps especially in trauma, relationships, and eating disorders, I believe the therapeutic relationship can be a site of exploration, experimentation, analysis, play, and healing. I deeply honor that therapy can and should be challenging in some moments, but overall I hope to engage in therapeutic work that is comforting, supportive, inspiring, and generative.
