I knew I wanted to be a therapist when I turned 13. I had a terrible group therapy and individual therapy experience and made a commitment to be to others what I needed during that time in my life. Learning EMDR and DARE offered me healing, and, has equipped me as a therapist. Each client is unique, and therefore, the work with each client is also unique. While I may have an idea of what our path may be early in our work together, as you continue to unfold in the sessions, we will ensure to use the techniques, skills, and resources that best support you in the present moment, under the umbrella of moving towards your healing goals. With many of my clients, I use an integrative DARE, EMDR, and parts work approach. I know that my personal nervous system plays a large part in the healing potential for each session. I prioritize moving my body and surrounding myself with physical resources so that I can lend my secure safety to clients in the midst of processing difficulties. Throughout our work, I’ll encourage you to lean into the resources around you and teach different practices, as well. One of the most exciting parts of therapy for me is reflecting back to clients when they’re mastering the skills: demonstrating secure safety for themselves.
