Trauma Informed Psychotherapy
I use a client-centered, trauma informed approach to psychotherapy, and believe that therapist and client are partners in healing. My goal is not to see clients indefinitely, but to help you gain the insight and skills necessary to integrate your past and create the most authentic vision for your future.
My approach to therapy is heavily influenced by Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems, somatic psychotherapy (influenced by the work of Bessel van der Kolk, Stephen Porges and Peter Levine), Relational Therapy, NARM, and DBT and CBT. Together with my client, we explore which modalities will best serve their individual’s needs and goals.
While I have over six years of experience with ketamine assisted psychotherapy, I am currently working as an intern at Simply Being Therapy in Nashville, Tennessee as I complete my Master's in Social Work (MSW).
