"Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom."
~ Viktor Frankl
Are anxiety, depression and low self-worth regulars in your life? The process of recognizing old stories, beliefs, and patterns can be overwhelming. It can bring up confusion, fear and grief. Letting go of old ways, that once kept you safe, can feel ungrounding and chaotic. Shifting what you've been familiar and comfortable with is deeply challenging and takes a great deal of strength and vulnerability. Healing, growth and change are lifelong practices, and transformation requires time, space, patience and self-compassion. Therapy can offer a safe and caring relationship that supports you in doing this life changing work.
With curiosity, compassion, and respect, I will support you in gaining the inner resources needed to break free of what is making you feel miserable, drained of energy and stuck. My approach is collaborative, integrative and relational. I incorporate somatic and attachment therapies, mindfulness techniques, family systems therapy, parts work and guided imagery into my practice.
Healing invites you to replace old coping strategies and habits by choosing new ways of being that are more aligned with the person you strive to be. It is in this choice that power and freedom are found.
For nearly a decade, I worked extensively with individuals, couples and families in crisis, in outpatient, residential and home-based settings, on both the east coast and Portland. I earned a Master’s degree in Marriage and Family Therapy from the University of Rhode Island. I am trained in Family Systems Therapy and currently training in Somatic and Attachment EMDR and Hakomi Mindful Somatic Psychotherapy. Ongoing studies are in mindful self-compassion, parts work, and spirituality.
