Individual Therapy

In Individual therapy, we meet on a weekly basis to dive deeper into the issues that are coming up for you in your life now. This may include an issue that has been going on for some time and is now coming to head- a traumatic incident from the past, or feeling of loss or grief that has never been resolved. This may look like issues in your current relationship, or problems at work. In my practice, I work with folks who are dealing with anxiety, relationship, and identity issues. 

During the initial phone intake, we'll talk more about what you're looking for, I'll answer any questions you may have, and we'll determine if it feels like a good idea to work together.  If we choose to proceed, I'll send you a questionnaire and my office policies and procedures to get started. At our first visit, we sit down together (over secure video, using a HIPAA compliant and completely private, completely secure platform), and 

Creative Calm: Using creativity to calm anxiety

This is an ongoing group for adults to help assess, manage, and tame anxiety. If you are someone who is regularly feeling anxious, overwhelmed or nervous, this group is for you. 

We will focus each session on developing practices to slow down, notice our physical, mental, and emotional experience of anxiety and then develop and train ourselves in ways to calm and soothe our anxious responses. 

This includes:

-mindfulness practice

-invoking self care with the 5 senses

-creative imagery to calm the brain and body

-creating "mind maps" to help find our way out of the anxiety maze that we often find ourselves in

-physical methods to self soothe anywhere or anytime

-developing mindful self compassion to help with the self criticism that often accompanies anxious thoughts

This is an 8 week group scheduled for Wednesdays: 11:00am- 12:30pm, limited to 6 participants

All materials will be provided, and absolutely no creative experience necessary

Fee: $520 plus $25 materials free

EXA group for Mixed Identity

This is a group for folks who identify as bi/multiracial to come together to unpack and explore the complexity of mixed identity.Over 8 weeks, we will come together in a safe and supportive space to talk about identity, community, and being fully seen.

This is a space for mixed and multiracial folks to come together, to give permission for those in the middle and on the margins to “take up space”- to be seen, heard, and have their experience honored. A space where we can recognize ourselves in the other, not as the other, in order to create a more nourishing, accurate, and affirming reflection of our experience. A space to come together to decrease isolation and increase validation, creativity, connection, and community.

The group has a 'flexible frame', with a common theme or idea being explored each week tied to an expressive arts directive. The content of the group is determined by group members, who are invited to bring what feels most pressing, relevant, and important into the group space.

Here's a general outline of the group: Over 8 weeks, moving from "You" to "I" to "We"

Week 1-  Laying the groundwork- labels and context

Week 2- Who are you? The inner mask and outer mask

Week 3- "What are you?" Being seen by others- finding our touchstone

Week 4- Turning inwards- What's missing? Creating what's needed

Week 5- Who am I? A True Reflection

Week 6- Who are We?- Collaging community

Week 7- What are we? Acknowledging with Awareness

Week 8- Going out into the world: finding community

 

This is an 8 week online group, Starting the 3 week of March, 2021, limited to 5-6 participants:

Wednesdays from 9:15- 10:30am PST
