"When we encounter difficulties in our lives we are effected in physical, emotional, cognitive and spiritual ways. I work to help my clients understand how their history impacts them on many levels and how our past, overtime, creates patterns of communication and sets the stage that determines how we deal with life's ups and downs. If we can gain understanding of the past and connect the dots between where we began and where we are today, then we can begin to heal and create new effective ways to communicate, build healthy relationships and realize more fulfillment in our lives."

"Each of us has the capacity to heal ourselves. Sometimes life stressors, transitions, and personal experiences interfere with this capacity and lead to anxiety, depression, or feeling off-balance. For children and adults alike this feels confusing and scary at times. In our work together, I will provide a space where I am fully present to guide the client towards reconnecting with their healing self. Using an attachment-based approach, we will collaborate to expand one's capacity to manage stressors and increase resiliency. "

I enjoy using this same developmental perspective to help adults who are struggling with the impact their childhood now has on them, for instance addressing codependency, boundaries, or experiences of childhood abuse.
