Trauma/LGBTQ+/Parts Work

My clients often come in feeling frustrated for not being able to change. They feel demoralized to be struggling so much in ways that can be baffling to them or the people who love them. They often feel that it’s their fault they’re stuck. We can shift these dynamics through building trust, human connection, acceptance, and learning to stay regulated under stress, without walling off the scary parts of ourselves. It can also be reassuring to find out that there are clear reasons why our brains and bodies react as they do.

Therapeutic work might happen through conversation and exploring emotions; or through play or movement. While the process will be different for each client, there is always room for humor and creating a sense of safety. I pull from IFS and trauma-informed practices.
