I(Axel) have worked with thousands of people in crisis through community clinics and support services. I draw from the deep humanistic tradition of existential psychology to bring cultural humility and trauma informed care to every person I work with. This means allowing for the big questions of our history, race, identity, relationship, spirituality, loss and death and holding them while we move through the present moment together. I am compelled by models of embodiment, resilience and liberation that empower people and communities to live more fully in this world.
