We are often impacted by our past experiences in both known unknown ways, and these experiences can dictate how we form relationships with ourselves and others. Symptoms such as anxiety, depression, dissociation, difficultly forming lasting relationships, eatings struggles - just to name a few - are signals that something else, something deeper, needs to be addressed. My goal is to collaborate on creating a secure therapeutic relationship where we can be curious about your present and past, and create longer lasting change and symptom relief.
I work from a relational psychodynamic approach, and often use IFS or parts language to better help you understand your inner world. We would explore past and present experiences & attachment patterns to help better understand current symptoms and relationships. When appropriate, we could use EMDR to help process and move through adverse/traumatic events.
I have specialized experience working with folks who present with developmental and relationship trauma, dissociative disorders, eating struggles, and self-injurious behavior. I also work well with identity development (especially gender & sexuality) and attachment/relationship concerns (particularly non-monogamous and kinky dynamics).
