My practice focuses on issues of self-esteem, relational intimacy, shame, personality disturbances, anxiety, depression, trauma, and life transitions. I work relationally and dynamically with a present-centered approach on issues as they are currently manifesting but with an eye to how they reflect deeper structures of clients' personalities and values. Therapy is not focused on fixing things, but on relaxing patterns of thinking, becoming more flexible in communicating emotion, building resilience, and being able to be more creative and trusting of oneself and others.
I have a background in mindfulness and evidence-based psychodynamic therapies, mentalization based therapy, somatic therapy for PTSD and developmental trauma, anger management, and the relationship between Buddhist practice and psychotherapy. I have a particular interest in trauma, social anxiety, dissociation, and personality disturbances and structures.
