Infertility, surrogate motherhood, adoption, pregnancy and postpartum are areas of great interest to me.
Mindfulness, empowerment, self awareness, intention, balance, harmony and unreasonable joy - what are these concepts and how do you apply them to yourself and others to have a life that you love? In a safe and supportive environment uncover conscious and unconscious patterns that help or hind you and your relationships. Together we explore the human condition, how there is a natural yearning to understrand what it is all about and come closer to living your life based on your helping and healing truths. All this can cultivate the best within yourself and those around you.

My training/experience in attachment theory, family systems, motivational interviewing, and mindfulness practices support successful trauma-informed treatment to address family disruption/conflict, couples issues, young adults struggling to launch, dual-diagnosis complexities, adoption-related issues, addiction, divorce, grief/loss, and impact of Covid-19.
My clinical approach to healing is humanistic, client-centered, and attachment-focused. I facilitate connection through emotional attunement, curiosity, and empathy that is predicated on non-judgement through a strengths-based lens. The therapeutic alliance is co-constructed collaboratively with individuals/couples/families who wish to do meaningful reparative work around deep unresolved material that can keep a system "stuck" in a feedback loop of historical pattern replication that is no longer effective or has become unmanageable. Clinical focus excavates these maladaptive mechanisms to install and achieve growth-mindset goals.

Out cultural institutions do not prepare us for the diversity of experience we face as adults. Conformity to outdated rules of thinking and acting do not work in situations that invite flexibility and adaptiveness. Rigid thinking patterns are maladaptive and lead to frustration, stress, and depression. We are led to believe we "should" be able to solve problems through mastery of our behavior and feelings, but it's just that demand to control things that leads to a identity. confusion. Therapy is not education: I don't work from a lesson plan that has all the right answers. We will work your story 'till it makes sense.
