Our earliest experiences of life form the foundation for the rest of our life. I work with adults struggling to heal old wounds and reduce anxiety and conflict in their lives. Whether you're finding your own childhood experiences being triggered by your child's or partner's behavior today; a working parent attempting to balance competing needs of your workplace, partner, or child; feeling overwhelmed by life transitions (ie. divorce, loss of a loved one, new job, etc), suffering from perinatal anxiety or depression, or someone who has experienced a trauma or distressing memory and wants to be free of its grip, I welcome you.
While I use a number of therapeutic approaches, my primary approach to working with you therapeutically is AEDP, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy. AEDP is an integration of many approaches, such as attachment theory, mindfulness, somatic healing, and psychodynamic theory. I also utilize EMDR for trauma treatment and CBT as needed.
