My Approach to Healing
Therapy is a gathering of imperfect humans who navigate the obstacles of our complex world together. Intentions Therapy offers an online space for self-inquiry, exploration, and healing.
I commit to practicing cultural humility, sensitivity, and curiosity with all clients. I seek to provide a secure and emotionally nurturing space to connect with my clients across divides.
I pull from a variety of modalities and healing disciplines to cater treatment to the unique needs in focus. These are the components of my therapeutic approach:
Neuro-Affective Relational Model (NARM)
Regulate your nervous system after complex, developmental, or relational trauma through connection, attunement, and trust
Identity Informed Practice
Explore the intersection of your identities and the impact of systems of oppression and marginalization on your life
Somatic Mindfulness +
Practice embodied wellness, breathe and release stress, integrate your mind and body by embracing rest
Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT)
Heal your shadows and core beliefs with your thoughts, feelings, actions and experiences
Self Healing for Collective Care
Heal your relationship with yourself in group therapy, share your truth and be witnessed deeply by your community
Parts Work (IFS)
Heal inner conflict, process and resolve early traumas as you consciously reparent your inner family
Know you are more than the difficulties you face, gain control of your story and be an agent of positive change
Set the goals, focus and pace of your healing, learn self-advocacy and center your voice and choice
Distress Tolerance (DBT)
Learn to cope with emotional distress and crisis, build a coping skill 'toolkit', and establish true self care
I work to center the needs of folks in marginalized bodies, identities and groups.
I am a white, queer and trans person with chronic and invisible illness. I embody and explore the layers of complex human experience with sensitivity and love. My work seeks to challenge narratives of division, separation, fear and hopelessness by holding space for all people to embrace the fullness of their identity, expression, and experience.
Intentions Therapy commits to interrupting systems of oppression including racism, ablism, discrimination and stigma through client empowerment, healing of intergenerational trauma, practicing radical compassion, non-judgement, and intentional relationship with self and other.
