Our Approach

Trauma
Informed

We strive to help our clients feel seen, heard, understood, and respected so they can tap into their innate capacity to grow and heal. No matter who you are, how broken you feel, or what you've been through, we believe your nervous system is deeply intelligent and that current dysfunctional patterns and symptoms are actually adaptive survival strategies.

Brain & Body
Based

In order to heal from trauma, we have to work with our biology, not just our biography. That's why we teach our clients about their nervous systems and how to self-regulate. We go beyond talk therapy and use brain and body-based approaches to treat the underlying cause of current issues.

Mindfulness
Based

While it is important to understand your history, we focus on your experience in the here-and-now. You will be invited to notice your sensations, breath, and emotions. This also means working in the present moment with wounded and protective parts of yourself that are stuck in the past.  

Feeling stuck?

 

You can't change the past, but you can repair it. 

 

With the right support, you can heal and move forward.
