We all face tough times in life. I specialize in guiding individuals through various challenges, including grief, trauma, relationship struggles, unhealthy coping mechanisms, questions of identity, and spiritual awakening. My clients seek relief, empowerment, clarity, and a sense of wholeness. Finding the right therapist and approach is important in navigating this journey, and I commend you for exploring what could be most helpful for you.
I view therapy as an opportunity for people to pause amidst their daily grind and unpack their concerns with a supportive ally. My approach is nonjudgmental, curious, intuitive, and compassionate, with a sprinkle of humor. I draw from a diverse toolkit, blending insights from both biopsychosocial and psychospiritual perspectives. This includes traditional talk therapy, cognitive therapy and trauma-informed techniques. These methods include Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (SP), Trauma-Informed Stabilization Treatment (TIST), Maladaptive Schemas (from Schema Therapy), and "Parts Work" (derived from TIST, IFS, and SP). Additionally, I offer Psychedelic Integration Therapy and Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP), tailoring treatment plans collaboratively to suit each individual's needs.
In recent times, discussions about collective trauma stemming from local, national, and global issues have become increasingly common in my sessions. Many clients are grappling with existential crises and a deep yearning to feel complete. They're on a quest for meaning, purpose, and an authentic sense of self. This growing trend prompted me to integrate a psychospiritual dimension into my existing biopsychosocial approach. Driven by curiosity and a commitment to ongoing learning, I began researching the clinical applications of psychedelic substances and have taken training to ethically incorporate Psychedelic-Assisted Therapy into my practice. Today, I offer Ketamine-Assisted Psychotherapy and Psychedelic Integration Therapy as part of my comprehensive treatment offerings.
