I utilize an integrated, attachment-based approach to therapy, working to develop a strong collaborative relationship through which life experiences can be explored, discovered, and shared in ways that shift them from distressing cycles to new levels of understanding and peace.
As we move through life there are hurdles we encounter that can cause us to feel stuck, overwhelmed, and defeated. We may lose our sense of connection, self, or direction. Yet underneath that, I believe everyone possesses rich potential for purposeful growth and change. By cultivating resilience, nurturing curiosity, and practicing self-compassion we can soothe the parts of ourselves that need attention and feel secure in our belonging.

As a therapist, I believe in the importance of a person's autonomy, feeling seen without judgment, and that there is no right way to move through the process. From my experience, healing often requires allowing the hard, sticky, revolting, and unwanted emotions to create space for the pleasurable ones. It’s natural to need support through that process. I value joining the body, mind, and emotional realms, incorporating parts work, body-centered approaches, and practical neuroscience. As I learn to take myself less seriously and slow down, I am a big proponent of bringing humor and creative modalities into therapy as well.

Relationship is key in this process you are exploring -- it is in our therapeutic relationship where Alchemy happens. Therapy is not only about your story - it is about you, the Storyteller (what does that mean? call me, I will be happy to illuminate). It is my heartfelt belief that Safety in the therapeutic relationship allows for increased self-awareness, for Transformation, and ultimately, for our Truest self to emerge, to Blossom – allowing you to more easefully and naturally live free (from.... fill in the blank) and empowered. I truly believe it takes Courage for us all to genuinely live from our most authentic place.

You've heard of PTSD. You think you might have it. You don't know what to do about it. Your sleep is an issue because you have nightmares. Even when you don't have nightmares, you don't feel rested in the morning. You avoid pieces and parts of your life because you fear being triggered by past trauma. When the stress increases in your life, you notice higher anxiety and scarier thoughts. You want to let go of the abuse and trauma of the past. Maybe you've heard about EMDR, but you don't know where to start. When you're ready to deal with trauma, you want to start as soon as possible.

Therapy is becoming more normalized in a way that it wasn’t for your parents or grandparents. This is an opportunity to explore your own wants/needs, boundaries and personal values that drive your life daily. I focus on three main modalities of mindfulness, somatic experiencing and EMDR. I start every session with a 5-10min mindfulness meditation. Secondly, somatic experiencing is feeling your emotions through physical sensations. Lastly I am trained in EMDR which can be helpful for a range of symptoms from anxiety, depression to PTSD. I also offer psychedelic/ entheogens intention setting and/or integration therapy.

If you or your teen are struggling with self-esteem, anxiety, depression, behavior management, identity, healing trauma, life transitions, or general stress and overwhelm, I may be a good fit to meet your needs. I aim to create an experience for both teens and adults that doesn't make therapy yet another chore. It's okay if you're resistant to therapy, have had not-so-great experiences in the past, or you don't even know where to begin. Beginning therapy is incredibly vulnerable, but it does not mean you are broken. You simply need some tools and support.

As a Play Therapist and Theraplay therapist, I focus on children's social and emotional well-being. When children struggle either socially or emotionally, they are unable to learn. That is because they are not present and focused on their learning environment and what is happening in their classroom. I will help build relationships and help your child build their social and emotional skills.

You go through the motions each day. Wake up, go to work, come home, go to bed. Rinse and repeat. But every day, you feel more detached. Friends have noticed you becoming distant You've stopped doing the activities that once brought you joy. Everything is a chore. You feel guilty that you're having these troubles. After all, you tell yourself, other people have it so much worse. So you read self-help books and diligently keep a gratitude list. But it's no use. And since everyone else seems to be doing fine, you conclude that you're the problem. It's so lonely feeling this way. You're desperate to make a change, but don't know how.

I am passionate about Recovery (from whatever addiction/s) using EMDR and Mindfulness to Remember who we are and rebuild relationships (self first). In my own life of Recovery, I have found that healing from addictions means healing from our early traumas. In the process of recovery, there is much work to be done and I believe the foundation is healing the relationship with one's self. Becoming the trusted, beloved, compassionate adult; for ourselves. I am devoted and dedicated to cultivating this relationship and, like a pebble into a pond, the ripple affect flows outward to touch all of our relationships.

Attachment-based Therapists

Is attachment-based therapy the same as attachment therapy?

Attachment-based therapy may be confused with what is called “attachment therapy” (sometimes called “holding therapy”), a discredited and dangerous approach to treating children with attachment disorders, autism, or other mental health concerns. Attachment therapy—not attachment-based therapy—may involve restraining a child, forcing eye contact, and other coercive or abusive techniques. None of these practices are used in attachment-based therapy and the two modalities are in no way related.

What should I expect from attachment-based therapy?

Attachment-based therapy is based on attachment theory, which posits that children’s early relationships with their caregivers strongly influence their ability to navigate the world later in life. Thus, adults who seek attachment-based therapy should expect to deeply explore their childhood, identifying the dynamics or experiences that disrupted their attachment and the steps necessary to overcome challenges that arose as a result. Parents and children should expect to explore the possible factors that disrupted the parent-child relationship and work toward restoring trust and connection.

How long does attachment-based therapy last?

Certain forms of attachment-based therapy, especially those designed for parents and children, last for a set number of sessions; for example, Attachment and Biobehavioral Catch-Up, a specific attachment-based approach for young children who have undergone early adversity, unfolds over 10 one-hour sessions. When attachment-based therapy is practiced on adults or combined with other modalities, it may not last a specific length of time; clients may wish to ask prospective therapists how long they expect treatment to take.

Does attachment-based therapy work?

Most of the research on attachment-based therapy focuses on children and adolescents. Some of this research shows a positive effect, especially for attachment-based family therapy (ABFT). Other studies, however, have found that attachment-based therapy is no more effective than other approaches to childhood depression, anxiety, or suicidality. Less is known about the therapy’s efficacy on adult populations.
