I practice somatic psychotherapy, meaning I understand emotions as physical experiences, or that physical, emotional, and mental factors are crucially interrelated. I view therapy as a tool with which we can gain or reclaim access to options, be they in behavior, feelings, or thoughts.
My therapeutic stance is holistic and firmly rooted in harm reduction; I integrate many treatment approaches, including internal family systems psychotherapy, guided imagery meditation, somatic awareness strategies, mindfulness, attachment theory, and dreamwork. I emphasize the body’s ability to heal itself and the regenerative potential of the therapeutic relationship.
I welcome people of all races, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations. You may identify as queer, genderqueer, male, female, trans, non-binary, gay, straight, pansexual, asexual, kinky, religious, spiritual, atheist, and I look forward to talking with you about how these distinctions of self, and more, inform your reality. I also practice at the Center for Mindful Psychotherapy
