Licensed Professional Counselor & Registered Yoga Teacher
My Therapeutic Approach
I specialize in using a mindfulness-based, experiential approach that is relatively unconventional but effective, and can sometimes even be fun. Sessions are a flexible blend of ACT (Acceptance and Commitment Therapy), AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy), IFS (Internal Family Systems), Clinical Hypnosis, and Existential Therapy and are grounded in the science of IPNB (Interpersonal Neurobiology). I take a very active approach with clients; we’ll generally focus on developing self-awareness through experiential exercises and collaborative mind/body exploration to let the answers that are already within you arise and show themselves. I’ll ask you directive questions that turn you towards yourself, and help you shift out of patterns you may be unaware you are stuck in. You’ll also learn concrete skills for daily life and will sometimes receive homework assignments. I may incorporate guided meditations, breathing exercises, and physical stretches into sessions.
As a long-standing yoga practitioner and registered yoga teacher, yoga philosophy informs my practice; my approach honors the client as a whole person (body, mind, energy, emotions, spirit). In addition, I am certified in Clinical Hypnosis and can utilize hypnotherapy to help clients capitalize on the healing power of focused attention and the natural brain-state of trance. I strive to help clients honor their inner truths while empowering them with practical tools for living with intention, courage, and authenticity.
