Augusta is an empathic practitioner who is passionate about helping clients to grow as individuals, while improving their emotional and physical well-being. As with most healers, she came to psychotherapy by way of seeking change, and has a first hand understanding of what it feels like to need guidance and support. When working with clients, she relies on an integration of methods tailored to meet the needs of the client she is working with. She prefers a holistic framework focusing on the interconnectedness of our minds and body using a combination of psychodynamic, CBT, DBT and mindfulness-related yoga/Buddhist interventions.
Augusta graduated from The Evergreen State College where she learned the importance of making connections with other people, asking questions, empathic listening, and learning from differences while additionally exploring creative ventures including drawing, printing, photography and music. After graduation she moved to Korea for several years to gain an understanding of what it is like to live immersed in another culture. When she returned to the U.S., she moved to New York City and attended Hunter College to obtain a Master's degree in Social Work. She learned about current clinical practices in psychotherapy and social justice. Additionally, Augusta is a certified yoga instructor with 1700 hours of training in yoga and Buddhism.
