If you are looking to give yourself grace, then you have found the right place! Together we'll explore what your issues, needs, and goals are and how to go about achieving them. Through no-nonsense warmth and humor, I'll assist you in identifying and confronting your bugaboos serving as a guide who accompanies and bears witness to your journey of re-discovery and reclamation. "Homework" runs the gamut and often includes journaling, artwork/crafting, bibliotherapy, practicing a new protocol, or just saying "no" without further elaboration.
Practicing for 25+ years, I specialize in trauma, ADD, and self-erasure/sabotage and use cognitive-behavioral, psychoanalytic, and evidenced-based techniques in relation to who you are, what issues are most salient, and how best to help strengthen what's working and undo what doesn't. The goal is to get you comfortable in your own skin and using your voice.
I'm a Humanist (Rogers, Maslow) committed to creating and holding space where the change you envision may be safely explored. By building rapport and trust we identify collaboratively our area of work and the tools, techniques, and practices that align with you and your current needs and environment. A free initial phone consult is available by request.
