Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist
Reduce stress, improve relationships, heal from trauma, identify values.
— PHILOSOPHY —
Humans are relational and do not exist in isolation. Each of us are part of larger relational systems, including families, friendships, workplaces, communities, cultures, and societies. In western culture, women are socialized to behave within these systems in specific ways, often limiting preferred ways of interacting in the world. The most important of these relational systems is within ourselves. Interactions with the world around us are impacted by the degree to which we can observe, honor, and take action within ourselves. To live a valued life, to achieve goals, to face inevitable challenges, suffering, to grow, to love, we must get to know our own system of parts.
My practice is rooted in these concepts. I bring a specific socoi-neurobiological perspective in providing therapy to women with consideration of their unique experiences. I practice within post-modern/social constructionist framework. I utilize a variety of therapeutic techniques to best meet your needs. I often draw from: Experiential Therapy, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Solution Focused Therapy, Narrative Therapy, Internal Family Systems, Feminist Theory, Interpersonal Neurobiology and Somatic Based modalities.
