Over the last 6 years I have worked in a variety of residential and outpatient settings with children, adolescents, and adults. I have post-graduate training in somatic approaches to trauma, expressive arts therapy, and narrative therapy. I have multiple years of experience working in substance abuse treatment and wilderness settings. Most recently I worked as a therapist with the Eastern Band of Cherokee in rural North Carolina and I have a particular interest in historical trauma and building generative, life-affirming community culture. Prior to my work as a therapist, I worked as an organic farmer for many years and also as a wilderness guide.

How I work with clients

My approach to working with clients is relationship-based and I believe that people learn and grow by means of our experiences with and through one another. Rather than focusing on quickly resolving problems, I help clients unearth patterns, skills, and experiences that may help create a different sense of one’s struggles and joys. Once we can shine the light of awareness on an issue in a new way, clients frequently find that they can experience their problems from a different, less constricted perspective.

A healthy therapeutic relationship encourages clients to express things they may currently struggle to give voice to. I am here to reflect back to you what I hear, see, and feel during our time together so that you may begin to recognize yourself differently and be able to work through what you are feeling.
