I specialize in Attachment Trauma and C-PTSD, Relational Issues, Big Life Transitions, and Self Discovery. While I have worked with many diverse populations, my typical clients experience intergenerational trauma, childhood trauma, attachment issues, PTSD, borderline personality disorder (BPD), anxiety, generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), relationship problems (marriage, intimacy issues, polyamory, divorce, parental conflict/abuse, co-dependency etc…), burn out, and who otherwise are seeking more fulfilling authentic lives. My role is to journey with you as a fellow traveler to uncover meaning and purpose, acceptance and change.
Together we will look at how your past has informed your present self, putting you in the driver’s seat of where you want to go. You can be the changemaker of your life and rewrite the narrative of your history and future. I utilize trauma-informed psychodynamic psychotherapy, and support somatic work. Your safety and comfort in sessions always comes first.
I am a believer in radical acceptance. Existentialist and Holocaust survivor Viktor Frankl said, "When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves." I am here to validate, support, and challenge you. Virtual sessions and Ecotherapy Walk-and-Talk are available. Reach out to start your therapeutic journey today.
