I specialize in Psychodynamic and Attachment Theory, but I also incorporate aspects of Humanistic, Family Systems , Existential and Solution-Focused therapies in my work.
Therapy can be about working to resolve ongoing pain, or it can simply be about self-exploration and growth. No matter what brings you to therapy, it is my belief that a trusting relationship between client and therapist is the starting point for progress and is essential to achieving long-lasting change. In addition to working to achieve progress on individual therapeutic goals, we will work to help you find inner peace, make healthy and adaptive changes and function better in your relationships with others.

I integrate cognitive behavioral, family systems and psychodynamic treatments that are personalized to each client and their needs.
Life is about feeling connected, sharing in the joys and sorrows, and striving for something better, a better you. Therapy is a place where you can share and explore the challenges and achievements that make each of us an individual. I believe that forming a safe, non-judgmental relationship is fundamental to therapy and what guides the healing process. We work together in order to gain insight and learn healthy coping skills in managing challenges faced and the feelings associated with them. I believe that the most difficult job is working on ourselves but it is also the most rewarding.

With over 22 years in the field of mental health and wellness, I apply a customized and collaborative approach, to help individuals and couples navigate transitions, resolve internal/external conflicts, and restore balance.

As your needs and goals will determine how we work together, my approach is informed by several theories including: attachment, psychodynamic, family systems , and interpersonal neurobiology.
Do the strategies that once helped you navigate challenges or survive traumatic experiences now generate more psychological pain than they alleviate? Perhaps the pandemic has simply taken its toll on you. Whatever is prompting your search, finding a good therapist is hard. I believe therapy helps us develop a more resilient and flexible way to be with ourselves, the people we care about, and what we pursue in our lives. I work with individuals, couples, and families to address a wide variety of challenges.

"We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty." (Maya Angelou) I understand that as we experience life we will inevitably encounter obstacles and stressors that challenge us to change. I also believe these moments present opportunities for transformation. I recognize that life transitions and personal experiences can sometimes be overwhelming, however they can also be valuable seasons with the potential to generate "peak and valley" experiences that can alter our life course.

As a teacher, I have taught Family Systems within several universities, but as a clinician my clinical knowledge is combined with my depth of perception which brings us into a heightened awareness of the client's life experience.
My ideal client is one who is ready to do the work! Yes, if we do the work then life becomes an opportunity to love, live, and live life. One of my former clients who just happened to have been an Emmy and Tony award winner stated, "Siri has the formula." I have humbly bowed my head at the feet of several masters. Now is the time when I am being called to lovingly share what I have learned as I hopefully elevate others in the process.

Family Systems Therapists
Family Systems therapists view problems within the family as the result not of particular members' behaviors, but of the family's group dynamic. The family is seen as a complex system having its own language, roles, rules, beliefs, needs and patterns. The therapist helps each individual member understand how their childhood family operated, their role in that system, and how that experience has shaped their role in the current family.
