Associate Marriage & Family Therapist #94310
Supervised by Meridel Tobias, LMFT #93359
We often find ourselves and bodies, on the path towards health after overwhelming experiences, trauma, grief or loss. This can leave us feeling fragmented, fearful, or that our inner-fire has dimmed. I take my role as a therapist, one who supports the client in their bravery, as a facilitator of a sacred collaboration in restoring balance. I conduct therapy with an intention to process and move trauma (anxiety, depression and grief accompanying it) in order to restore a healthy relationship between the mind, body, and spirit and reignite the internal fire.
The body is a holder of immense wisdom and memory on a spiritual, emotional and transgenerational level. I work relationally with a trauma-informed lens, incorporating somatic techniques (rooted in Somatic Experiencing & Sensorimotor Psychotherapy) Gestalt & Parts work, Transpersonal psychology, mindfulness practices, art therapy modalities and a social-justice orientation.
Great care is taken developing our therapeutic alliance and experience into one that is horizontal and grounded in trust and safety. When working with individuals, couples, and adolescents, I see creativity, curiosity and exploration at the foundation of the work along side multiculturalism and diversity.
