APPROACHES TO PSYCHOTHERAPY

I offer a rich somatic psychotherapy training background, with the following influences

  • Includes mind and body, supporting wholeness and integration

  • Culturally sensitive and social justice perspective that honors your voice

SOMATIC - prioritizing body, movement, gesture and tracking mind/body awareness including eye contact, expressions, nonverbal communication

RELATIONAL - sees healing emerging in a safe relationship, and also learning in the relationship

ATTACHMENT FOCUSED - recognizes the role of early relationships in life effecting the style of adult relationships, and also the processes needed to build secure relationships

EXISTENTIAL and CULTURALLY SENSITIVE - respects your voice, perspective, and unique way of being in the world, as well as your unique way of finding a meaningful path

RELATIONAL ANALYTICALLY INFLUENCED - recognizes conscious and unconscious influences, and how are uniquely shaped through your history, personal destiny and your relationships, including the therapy relationship.

INTERSUBJECTIVE - a non-authoritarian collaborative perspective on change in which there is recognition that it “takes two”

TOUCH FOR TRAUMA HEALING - when appropriate, drawing from extensive training in the use of touch in therapy for restoring safety, accessing deeper emotional states, and developing resiliency

I support you to find potential and find deeper fulfillment, find your voice, heal from embodied oppression and social, cultural and familial wounds. My clients are from diverse racial/ethnic, gender identity, and sexual orientation backgrounds.
