Whether there is discomfort in the body related to trauma, anxiety, eating or size, or gender identity, my approach involves mindful and experiential treatment for the body as well as the mind. Talking through it, usually doesn't fully get at what is also held in the body.
I believe the relationships we are in are central to our sense of security and happiness in the world and that these must be considered in one's therapy as well.
My approach is compassionate and safe yet I am still an active participant and guide in the process. I will ask the hard questions while supporting you in gaining self acceptance and trust.
