The decision to enter into therapy can be difficult and scary. I try to make this process less stressful and put individuals at ease. I meet every individual where they are at in the process of change and strive to provide a warm, safe, and supportive environment. I feel very passionate about the importance and value of therapy because I believe every individual can benefit from therapy at some point in his or her life. I work with individuals to help them make changes that will move them closer to feeling better and living the life he or she desires.

Sometimes we don't know what we want in life, we just know we want something different! Are there parts of your life that have become unmanageable or difficult and want some professional feedback? Have you thought your life would be different than what it is? To meet the changing demands of our lives we must find ways to grow and change because life is a series of transitions. It turns out we can find new and exciting parts of ourselves as we go through these life challenges and changes. Loss and adversity is a part of life, but it can be the architecture for a better life, it just depends how we view it and use it!

Something feels off. You can’t quite put your finger on it; but some “shit” feels weird. You don’t feel like you can trust people so you isolate yourself from others because being fake feels phony to you. You are tired of fighting; but you can’t give up because there is a constant thought in your head “Who is going to take care of my child(ren)?” Nobody. So, you shake it off and keep pretending like everything is fine.

When people first come in to see me, they are often anxious, depressed or scared. They may feel confused or uncertain about the future. Coping skills that used to work "OK" no longer seem to be sufficient. Some people can point to a specific cause or event, but others find it difficult to identify or talk about underlying concerns - particularly if they have endured a trauma. Therapy offers a warm, safe and compassionate space for exploration of feelings that can be too difficult or too heavy to hold by one's self.

Reaching out for help during our vulnerable moments can be overwhelming and intimidating. Sometimes we can convince ourselves that we should figure it out on our own or that things aren't bad enough to need help and we can find ourselves reluctant to take that next step. Regardless of where you are on your healing journey, I will meet you there and join beside you to work through the things that feel unbearable and impossible to overcome on your own.

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.
