Integrative Therapy

Therapeutic Approach

Foundational to my clinical approach is my training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, a type of somatic therapy that can be tailored for a variety of concerns. Sensorimotor Psychotherapy (or “SP”) recognizes the body as an essential component in therapy and interweaves somatic, emotional, and cognitive avenues of processing and self-exploration.

My approach also draws influence from:

Ultimately, I believe that the most important active ingredient in therapy is the unique, authentic client/therapist relationship. My style is warm and down to earth, with plenty of room for humor and compassionate curiosity.

*As a cis white therapist, I acknowledge that the mental health field has a very cis white history of weaponizing power disguised as humanitarianism. Both professionally and personally, I am committed to the lifelong work of anti-racism and reducing my complicity in harm. I believe that therapy should never aim to make people more compliant with their own oppression. Rather, I support my clients in feeling whole and grounded enough to embody, love, and prioritize all their layers of identity.
