About

I work with people who are looking for deeper connection in their life. We all learn to navigate the world and relate to others from our earliest childhood experiences. What we learn from these early experiences can influence the way we experience intimacy, vulnerability, trust, and our own self-concept. For some, the ways we learned to relate and attach to others in our youth no longer serves our best interests, and as a result, we can feel unwanted distance in our relationships. Taking the opportunity to explore the beliefs and patterns that we adopted early on can help us to understand and experience intimacy in a new way.
My approach involves working from an attachment-based perspective to help explore patterns you wish to change, understand core fears and how they impact self-concept, and the ways you relate to others in life. Part of my practice also involves learning to connect with our somatic, emotional experiences to help us connect more deeply to ourselves and others.
Additionally, I am trained in Lifespan Integration and EMDR therapies. I work from the understanding that developing new ways to relate involves cultivating an authentic and trusting relationship with your counselor. If anything above resonates with you, send me a message to schedule a consultation if you think we will be a good fit together.
