The guiding values of my practice are authenticity, intention, and connection. I am likely a good fit for you if you are seeking more of this in your life. The word Hiraeth has its origins in the Welsh language and is believed to translate as a longing for one’s literal and figurative homeland. I believe that many of the people I have worked with, over the last 15 years, seek therapy in this search for something that is missing, a sense of isolation and alienation, and being part of marginalized communities. In turn, I can provide you support you in this exploration of your “homeland” and to increase connection to self and others.
I’m passionate about working with the transformative teenage years and the growth and change that continues to take place in adulthood. My general areas of practice are with Mood Disorders (Bipolar and Depression), Anxiety, PTSD and trauma, and navigating stress and life changes. In addition, I have a particular interest in providing recovery support for those who are navigating life in sobriety, are trying to remain sober, and/or are partners of people in recovery.
Treatment Models and Frameworks– Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Motivational Interviewing, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy Level 1, Acceptance Commitment Therapy, and Mindfulness. I am enrolled in a functional nutrition program, starting fall 2019, and plan on incorporating that into the practice as well.
