Offering trauma therapy for individual adults age 18+
Therapy gives us a chance to have a different experience than we do in our daily lives. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the self and understand why we are who we are, and how we can be in relationship with others. I believe that every person deserves to be heard, felt, and cared for. The therapy space is unique; where else in life are we able to fully be ourselves in a place of curiosity rather than judgement?
I take a person-centered approach with clients. Therapy is a relationship, and I believe we are "fellow travelers" on the path to healing and understanding. I know that you are the expert in your own life, and my role is to help you find the answers that already exist inside you. We'll look for those answers by identifying the "why" behind your feelings, paying close attention to the body's experience along with the mind. And, just as important, we'll work together to find the "how" that will allow you to live life with a greater degree of freedom.
Prior to Our Collective, I worked as a psychotherapist at Kelly Haines & Associates, a group practice in Dupont Circle. My masters program internship was spent providing therapy to individual and group clients. I have training in Sensorimotor Psychotherapy and Clinical Hypnosis. My current focus is learning more about Internal Family Systems, or how our different parts interact with each other and our Self.
Prior to becoming a therapist, I spent over a decade working in government and politics in DC and the Midwest.
More about me....
I love exploring with my dog Anna and taking photos of interesting people, places, and things--and other dogs. I enjoy baking cookies and cakes for friends. I have a bad habit of buying more books than I can read. I'm also on the board of the Washington Society of Psychoanalytic Psychology and a volunteer at Congressional Cemetery.
