Are you feeling stuck in a cycle of conflict and misunderstanding in your relationships? Do you long for deeper connections but find yourself facing barriers you can't seem to overcome? As a therapist specializing in relationship issues, I am here to offer you a guiding hand on your journey towards healing and connection. With a warm, empathetic approach, I provide a safe and supportive space for individuals and couples to explore their feelings, communicate effectively, and foster healthier relationships. My focus areas include anxiety/depression, childhood trauma, PTSD, people-pleasing, and marital/pre-marital issues.
My approach is holistic and grounded in psychodynamic, humanstic, and somatic orientations, I use a range of trauma modalities like Internal Family Systems (IFS), (EMDR), Emotion Focused Couples Therapy (EFCT), Somatic Experiencing (SE), Brainspotting (BSP), and more to tailor sessions to your unique needs. I actively engage with you and provide feedback.
If you're ready to take the first step towards positive change in your relationships, I invite you to embark on this journey of self-discovery and growth with me. Together, we can explore the patterns that may be holding you back, develop practical skills to enhance your relationships, and create a roadmap towards a more fulfilling and harmonious life.
