Anxiety, depression, PTSD, addiction, etc., there’s one thing they all have in common. They're often symptoms of a deeper, older pattern that’s become trapped in our brain and nervous system (for example, you might notice that not only do you have disconnected thoughts, but also that your body might feel uncomfortable). Those patterns are looking to process their way through to a finishing point, but for several reasons, is unable to do so. Both Gestalt therapy and Brainspotting work together to acknowledge & understand these trapped patterns, not only through the story, but also at the level of experience, or intuition. By working at that level, science has shown that these patterns can be weakened or resolved altogether.

The science behind this is about working at the survival levels of our organism. In biology talk, by working past the neo cortex in the brain, moving more deeply into the subcortex, through the limbic system, into the vagal nervous system (in the body) the patterns of suffering find their way to completion.

Helping You

In our sessions, we'll first take the time to understand your story. We'll work together to better understand how you view your life experiences and any unfinished business that may be keeping you from breathing deeply and freely. Understanding how your emotions and thoughts work together or against each other is key. Greater insight and understanding can equal greater meaning and peace. When you discover how to flow with yourself and your environment, you can be more open to excitement and vitality in living.

 

"If you've tried speaking with your friends and family, and haven't gotten any satisfying answers, or if there are certain inner struggles you can't share with them, that's when psychotherapy can be useful."

 

My main approaches in psychotherapy are both Gestalt therapy and Brainspotting. With both of these, I help you bring your stories, and your intuition, to the forefront of your experience. I work from a place of compassion and honesty. Whether you have a specific issue you are looking to heal from, or you wish to delve deeply into long-term therapy, it is my goal to support you towards who you want to see yourself become.


First consultation is free. I accept both Psychotherapy and Psychology insurance.

I am an LGBTQ friendly and sex positive Psychotherapist.
