I work with adult individuals, children (2-18), and parents. I help clients creatively turn pain into coping skills, missed connections into secure relationships, and problematic behaviors into strengths and resiliency. I focus on practical, real-world strategies that build security and connection through a balance of nurture, engagement, structure, and challenge. These strategies are a resource that can then be utilized through different life experiences, stages, and stressors. I support adults, children, and parents alike to understand their emotional and relational needs and find more satisfying, connective ways of meeting them.
I work with adults/parents to identify ways in which their own attachment history and family of origin experiences may be influencing their current relational strategies and family dynamics. I work to highlight your strengths, nurture your self-worth, build strategies for connection, meet unmet needs, release old patterns, and heal unresolved wounds.
I work with adults and children struggling with unworthiness, difficulty organizing/tolerating emotions, or relationship patterns that don’t feel satisfying. I can guide you, individually or together, into calm, security, connection, and openness. You deserve to have clear maps for connection and repair that can be relied upon in moments of stress or hurt.

I specialize in relationships, connection, attachment, and trauma. Relationship experiences have great power to shape us - what is loveable about us, what emotions are acceptable, what needs we can hope to have met, and if someone will be there in moments of need. I support individuals and families to create attuned, calm, meaningful, and joyful relationships long after therapy ends.
