I take a thoughtful approach to addressing each client's needs, tailoring my methods to align with your individual goals and unique circumstances.

Somatic SE
Psychotherapy

Somatic SE Psychotherapy:

This body-oriented approach helps you connect deeply with your physical sensations to foster emotional awareness, regulate your nervous system, and build resilience. It's a transformative tool not only for healing from trauma but also for enhancing overall wellbeing and achieving a balanced, calm state of mind.

IFS
Parts Work

IFS Parts Work Therapy:

Dive into the transformative practice of Internal Family Systems, a therapeutic approach that recognizes and addresses the multiple parts within each of us. By understanding and healing these parts, you can achieve greater self-awareness, harmony, and balance in your emotional life, leading to profound personal growth and healing.

Emotion Focused
EFT

Emotion-Focused Therapy:

This therapeutic approach empowers you to process and regulate your emotions in a healthy way. Through guided exploration and supportive techniques, you’ll uncover deeper insights into your emotional patterns, enhancing emotional intelligence and fostering stronger, more resilient relationships.

Integrated Therapy Approaches:

I utilize Family Systems for improving dynamics, Trauma-Informed practices for understanding and safety, Experiential and Transpersonal therapies for personal insight, and Relational techniques to foster deeper connections. Additionally, our use of Somatic EMDR helps manage and heal emotional distress effectively.
