I help my clients work through pain, gain greater awareness, understand themselves better, and create meaningful change in their lives. I believe that each therapy is unique, and I match my approach to meet my client’s needs. I look forward to working with you to help you live more deeply and authentically in your life, no matter what you are facing.
My aim is to create a space where you will feel safe, accepted and supported to talk about the difficult parts of life. In session, you have my full attention, and I balance support and validation along with gentle challenges. I have been acknowledged for my authenticity and have been told my humor is well placed and appreciated.
The emphasis of sessions is on how you think and feel about yourself and the dynamics of your relationships. We may try quick and simple approaches first, because sometimes they work, but if not, we can go more deeply into your unique personal narrative to make connections from the past to your present. Together, we will make sense of what you are struggling with by putting it into the context of your life experiences.
I work with adults across the lifespan who have experienced relational misattunement and trauma which is now being expressed as depression, anxiety, PTSD, eating disorders or personality traits of perfectionism and people pleasing. I also work well with adults struggling with grief and loss, ADHD and chronic illnesses. However, to be clear, I view my clients as more than just a list of symptoms. I want to hear your story!
