no one that is suffering is not an indicator of the ways in which the society itself is suffering

The following treatment approaches inform my work and are areas where I seek ongoing training:

Feminist Therapy looks at social, cultural and political structures that shape how we feel and function. It strives to dismantle oppression both structurally and individually through increased awareness and empowerment.

Trauma Center Trauma Sensitive Yoga is an research-based treatment model that uses movement and breath to support empowerment and agency-building

Psychodynamic Therapy works with the unconscious—powerful feelings, thoughts and motivations that operate outside of our awareness. It also considers how early experiences shape us and act as a template for our current experiences.
