Values and Philosophy

I aim my work and service toward supporting a liberation psychology which helps all people see themselves as proactive free agents with a meaningful role in creating a just, loving, and peaceful world. With over 30 years experience in psychotherapy and psychological consultation, I maintain a 'non-pathologizing,' integrated, trauma-focused approach to fostering transformative change. Beyond my work as an ally to growth and change, I'm involved in intercultural collaboration, clinical supervision, and am a professional writer, speaker, and musician.

Therapeutic Technique and Methodology

Integrated psychotherapy: What works and serves. I have a background in many modalities including existential, psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive-behavioral, and humanistic approaches. Additionally, I have specialized training in trauma psychotherapy, brainspotting, coherence psychotherapy, and accelerated experiential dynamic psychotherapy (AEDP). I also have a speciality in working with acculturation issues and in working with Native Americans.
