Struggling with negative beliefs, unwanted thoughts, past traumas, depression, or even parenting? Regardless, you don’t have to face those challenges alone. We are often impacted by past events, resulting in unhealthy coping mechanisms and negative core beliefs about ourselves and/or the world. Even when we “know” our behaviors and thoughts aren’t helpful, sometimes we just feel so stuck and aren’t sure what, if anything, will help. That's where I am come in: I’m here to provide a safe environment for individuals to overcome past struggles, challenge & replace negative beliefs, develop healthy coping skills, and reach healing.

I believe therapy is about active collaboration and discovery. Together we will explore how your current patterns either support your happiness or contribute to your struggle. Areas of distress are commonly patterns that repeat over and over----in how we cope, our self-esteem, and our relationships. Common psychological symptoms such as anxiety and depression can often be linked back to the way we relate to the world, ourselves, and others. You're the expert on you. Once we've identified the underlying patterns, we can work together to develop a new way of interacting with the world around you and the people in it.

“You may not control all the events that happen to you, but you can decide not to be reduced by them.” – Maya Angelou. Are you a teen or adult struggling with anxiety, depression, anger, trauma, abuse, or adjustments in life? Maybe you’re having difficulties with work, school, or relationships? Or do you just feel stuck dealing with life’s challenges? Do you find yourself saying, “I just don’t know what else to do to stop feeling this way?” Success in life is about problem identification and resolution, resilience, and using practical coping skills and strategies.

*CSAT-Candidate. Sex addiction can have a truly negative impact on your family, your career, your relationships, and your health. Discovering that your partner has an addiction or is heavily involved in porn can be devastating to your relationship. You may feel alone and ashamed about your partner's behavior and have the urge to try to control how he acts. Although sexuality composes a large part of our lives, talking about it isn't always easy. When problems arise, it is even more difficult to discuss. Anger is a normal, healthy human emotion. However, left uncontrolled, it has the power to damage your body and your relationships.

Sometimes you need a little help; help with your hurts, habits, hang-ups. Maybe you're dealing with anxiety, depression, grief, or the aftermath of trauma. Maybe you're struggling with substance abuse or trying to heal after sexual abuse. Perhaps you're wondering if your relationship is salvageable. You might be overwhelmed by the thought of starting over after a divorce. That can be hard to do alone. So, instead of getting discouraged, you can take the first step towards healing by reaching out for help. I want to help you get where you want to go and navigate your journey from feeling stuck to feeling free.

You can have a life that is not defined by anxiety, depression, shame, or loneliness. You can be brave and confident. You can value your own needs as much as you value others'.

I love helping clients find their voice and increase their self-confidence. I help you identify the factors underlying your anxiety, trauma, and depression so you're not just trying to cope with them anymore, but can have more of the life you want.

Have a feeling there is a disconnect in your life? Experiences such as overwhelm, helplessness, over-thinking things, over-reacting in situations, relationship strain, mentally beating yourself up, or physical symptoms like recurrent headaches, stomachaches, or a rundown immune system are often signs that we are cut off from our highest self, the healthiest version of ourself. Trauma, in its many forms, can do this to us. It can hijack our nervous system so we respond to life in ways that do not support mental or physical wellbeing for us or our relationships. I want to help you heal and take back control of your life.

I believe life is about CREATING (not finding) yourself. Often times people seek therapy because they feel lost and uncertain of who they are in the face of all the hardships. I know life can knock us down and leave us feeling blindsided (#2020!?)...but I truly believe this becomes our chance to redefine our story! To redefine WHO you are. So, instead of wilting & giving up; we have the opportunity to grow & recreate who we hoped to become before all the hardships & heartaches. You've already taken the first step-you're here! Your painful stories don't have to define you; I'll walk with you as you choose to write a better story.

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.
