Internal Family Systems (IFS) psychotherapy is a transformative approach that can be especially effective for individuals experiencing trauma related to anomalous phenomena. This modality respects the complexity of your experiences, providing a safe space to explore and integrate these parts of your psyche. As a compassionate and skilled psychotherapist with certifications in IFS, Gentle Reprocessing, full training in EMDR, and additional training in Couples Therapy, I am committed to helping you navigate challenges like trauma, toxic relationships, depression, anxiety, and self-worth issues. My approach is non-pathologizing, focusing on understanding and transforming negative thinking and behavior patterns through a comprehensive and evidence-based treatment strategy.

Working with Experiencers
I work with exceptional experiences because I recognize that anomalous phenomena are more frequent and widespread than commonly acknowledged. While the value of science and empirical evidence is important, the most significant aspect is the impact of these experiences on an individual's perception and integration into their psyche, rather than their measurability by scientific methods. My personal journey, including working with altered states of consciousness, doing medium readings, having psychic precognition, and encounters with orbs, experiencing Sound Healing, and reading the Akashic Records has deepened my belief in the profound capabilities of the mind and human spirit, guiding my practice to embrace and explore these extraordinary experiences.
