Trying to find stability in times of crisis? Healing from trauma? Struggling in your relationships? Learning how to live with mental illness? I offer existential therapy to address these and other challenges. This can be a transformative and effective modality for clients looking to learn how to live with mental illness, process grief, build self-knowledge and self-worth, heal wounds, work with change, find embodiment and integration, resist oppression, and cope with the inevitable suffering that life holds. My clients appreciate the humanistic approach I bring to our work, which centers your lived experience.
I operate on the belief that you are the expert on yourself and work to understand you as an individual to know how to most effectively address your challenges. I can be a guide, partner, and witness in the therapeutic process of building trust and collaborating to strengthen your sense of self and ability to find meaning and joy in your life. For trauma work, I sometimes use a somatic modality called Brainspotting.
I have worked with people experiencing many different forms of mental distress; my approach is more about engaging with the whole person than with specific diagnoses.
I offer an anti-oppression lens and am experienced with and affirming of LGBTQ+, kinky, polyamorous, and chronically ill clients. I look forward to hearing what you need right now.
