Does it feel like you have been throughtoo much to make sense of and aredisconnected from even yourself?

I take a holistic, non-pathologizing approach by working with all the parts of an individual to move towards flexibility,  self-knowledge and compassion, and connection.

traditional, existential therapy

We will spend 50-60 minutes being curious about the why and how of your experience, looking at thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical cues.

I often use parts language to create space internally, to focus in on emotions like those connected to anxiety. We will learn about the stories behind your thoughts and feelings, as each part of us has its own purpose. It is also helpful to learn and  practice mindfulness, emotion regulation, and distress tolerance skills.

Ketamine Assisted Psychotherapy (KAP)

This is a type of therapy done in collaboration with a prescriber and myself. If you are a good candidate, ketamine, a safe, non-traditional psychedelic, when taken in a therapeutic setting and context, can catalyze positive change. It disrupts your default mode and replaces it with new neuronal connections. Putting these changes to work in your life is necessary to sustain its benefits. 

short-term crisis counseling

I offer short term therapy with prescribed goals to help you find the best solutions for what feels like a crisis, whether it is relational, work related, or first requires stabilizing physical and/or mental health. Having worked on a mobile crisis team, I am adept at helping individuals find suitable, professional support outlets.

Therapy with me can help you learn to:

  • safely turn inward and expand into what your conscious mind and nervous system reflect back to you, e.g. start to answer questions like:       

What is my body telling me? 

 What experience do I long for?                                                   

What is getting in the way of having it?                                               

What is my body telling me?                                                         

Where did these feelings come from and how old are they?

  • nonjudgmentally observe the flowing contents of your mind while anchoring to your breath, i.e. mindfulness meditation
  • investigate core beliefs/narratives                    
  • process traumas that have helped to form core beliefs
  • clarify what you need and want, not your well-intentioned protective parts that may try to intervene or distract
  • understand your limits of control as well as where boundaries should lie amidst dynamic, complex relationships​​
  • set measurable goals based on values and build fundamental self worth
  • accept uncomfortable feelings while also working to regulate them
  • practice living between "logical mind" and "emotion mind"
