Clinical Social Worker/Therapist -
I love helping 20- and 30-somethings develop insight into whatever it is that is getting in the way of having the life they want. My approach is holistic (in the sense that I view each client as a whole, not as a set of symptoms or behaviors, taking into account the way that body and nervous system, neurobiology and psyche, emotions, soul, spirituality, and energy field are all interacting with each other as a complex, dynamic system). My approach is also very warm and compassionate. I want my little therapy office to feel like a warm hug when you walk in 🙂 My approach is also integrative, in the sense that I draw on a number of evidence-based approaches (from trauma-focused CBT to EMDR) and enrich my approach with lots of awareness of depth/Jungian psychology and transpersonal psychology.
Since my approach is trauma-focused, I will look at the way that early life trauma and/or attachment injuries are being repeated or keeping you frozen in the present, in any area of your life. Sometimes what seems to be in the way can actually be the golden road to heaps of insight, and healing.
I also offer Psychedelic Integration for anyone who has experienced an entheogen-induced non-ordinary state of consciousness outside of my office, and before our work together began. These experiences can be profound and life-transformative, and they can also bring up a lot of stuff, or alter the sense of self in a lingering sort of way. In these instances, assistance with integration is absolutely indicated.
