My therapeutic approach is a blend of neurobiology, Polyvagal Theory, and attachment oriented psychotherapy with somatic approaches. I believe that a collaborative and trusting relationship is the foundation of effective therapy. My goal in my therapeutic work is to create a space where clients feel safe, accepted, and supported to be curious and explore any and all aspects of themselves and their lives.
I am passionate about sex education - especially with teens and parents - helping to cultivate safe, open, honest, and realistic conversations about sex.
I hold a BA in Psychology from Harvard and MA in Counseling Psychology from Webster University, Geneva.
I am a Polyvagal certified therapist (Rhythm of Regulation with Deb Dana).
I am a trauma-informed therapist, holding the CCTS-I. (This training is essential for the safe and successful delivery of the Safe and Sound Protocol.)
Certified in delivering the Safe and Sound Protocol and The Focus System.
I have additional training in psychosexual dysfunction and am working towards CORST certification in the UK.
I believe that Minds change Bodies and Bodies change Minds.
I am a mother to three and pug mother of one, a mediocre cook, avid forest walker, obsessive knitter and podcast listener, and holder of stories.
I have been a Basler for 15+ years and counting.
