Juggling the multiple roles and relationships that society calls us into can be quite the challenge. However, understanding why and how we suffer can give us insight into our deeply held longings. Therefore, our symptoms have the potential to guide us toward our most authentic path. I specialize in working with those in "quarter-life" (roughly 18-40) as they grapple with identity issues, relationships, finding their place in the world, and balancing a life that includes both meaning and stability. I provide a safe and openhearted experience for my clients where all aspects of the self are welcomed with warmth and curiosity.
With depth psychology as my primary therapeutic orientation, I honor the unconscious and view symptoms as signals that point to how an individual is suffering. From this premise, symptoms are viewed as something to learn from with the aim of free expression of the true self. We will spend time understanding symptoms as they are rooted in life experience.
My treatment approach is informed by the understanding that a person is inevitably influenced by their connection to immediate family, friends, community, society, culture, country, and world. I respect the unique experience and needs of each person, and my therapeutic style tends to be warm, creative, and integrative while remaining rooted in theory.
