Individual Therapy

Therapy is a container to do our own work.

Therapy is healing relationship unlike any other relationship in our lives. Therapy initiates momentum around personal healing and growth. It can also significantly help reduce the experience of anxiety, stress, trauma and more.

Currently I see adults across the life span. I have worked with clients as young as 19 and as old as 81.

I provide individual sessions for grief, anxiety, depression, self-harming behaviors, relationship difficulty, religious trauma, developmental and acute trauma, suicidal ideation, addictions, chronic/terminal illness, caregiver burden, gender and sexuality questions, and stress.

Internal Family Systems (IFS) is an evidence based practice for many presenting issues including trauma, eating disorders, addiction, anxiety, depression, suicidal ideation, crisis, grief, chronic and terminal illness and more. IFS sees each individual as a system of parts that hold valuable qualities and that through painful experiences pick up burdens to adapt. Through reconnecting to our Self we can bring healing and unburdening to any part in our system so they can be freed to be the valuable asset they were meant to be. Trauma – developmental or acute – disconnects us from ourselves and IFS is a powerful approach for reconnecting to our authentic selves and reintegrating parts of our system that have been exiled to become whole again. You can find out more about Internal Family Systems at the IFS Institute https://ifs-institute.com/.

Mindful Self-Compassion (MSC) combines and integrates the skills of mindfulness and the practice of self-compassion into psychotherapy. When we have a kinder relationship with ourselves we can often meet our pain with more ease.

MSC is also taught in an evidence based 8 week course to learn to integrate the practices of mindfulness and self-compassion into daily life. More information is provided on this site about these courses. You can also find out more about courses from the Center for Mindful Self-Compassion https://centerformsc.org/.

Other Approaches

I also draw from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to learn foundational connections between our thoughts, feelings and behaviors and how we work with them. I use a lot of mindfulness techniques to increase capacity for awareness, present moment living and insight. I also incorporate body based techniques to work with anxiety, depression, trauma, and regulation of our nervous systems made available through Polyvagal Theory in therapy.

Currently providing therapy over Telehealth and in person. Accept payment via check, Venmo, credit card and bill most major insurances including Medicaid and Medicare.
