Because we are diverse beings with unique needs that require unique responses, my approach to psychotherapy draws from diverse techniques and philosophies, including Hakomi, Humanistic, Gestalt/Gestalt Dreamwork, Mindfulness, Somatic, Jungian/Dreamwork, Attachment-Based , Existential, Experiential, Bioenergetics, CBT, DBT, Emotionally Focused, World Wisdom & Spiritual Traditions, Buddhist Psychology and Yoga Psychology.
How you see yourself might be deeply influenced by the emotional distress, negative thought patterns, or destructive and addictive behaviors you struggle with. However, as a Transpersonal Psychotherapist I believe these conditions cover up, rather than define, who you truly are. My unique approach to psychotherapy encourages a balanced integration of the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of your wellbeing. I'd like to support you in creating optimal conditions for the safe, mindful, and deep exploration of your innate capacity for self-healing and radical transformation.

Welcome! I have experience working with adults in both outpatient and residential substance abuse settings. My work in substance abuse has granted me the opportunity to work with a diverse group of clients suffering from depression, anxiety, trauma, relationship issues, and grief. I believe therapy is a collaborative effort and I encourage clients to communicate openly about what works best for them. I value each therapeutic relationship and honor each client’s autonomy and individuality. I believe that individuals have the ability to overcome their struggles and that therapy can make that possible.

My clients often are feeling stressed, overwhelmed, and anxious because of life changes and constant feelings of worry and overwhelm. The kids, teens, and young adults I work with often need to feel heard and set goals of better understanding their big emotions. A major part of this work is including parents and caregivers to provide tools and strategies that can help at home. My clients often have trouble expressing their deepest feelings and want to have better relationships with friends and family. Anxiety sometimes feels like it gets in the way of close relationships, but, together, we can discover new ways to reconnect.

**PLEASE CHECK BACK. I AM CURRENTLY FULL AND CANNOT ACCEPT NEW CLIENTS. THANK YOU.**When an atmosphere of trust and collaboration is created, healing can begin. My clients have shared with me that I am amicable and non-judgmental, warm hearted with a sense of humor and play. Within this space, clients who are learning to live with problems like a change in life, addiction or trauma can explore their life experiences, learn to use their current strengths and add new skills to move towards their goal. It takes time and patience, honesty and courage, plus support to look at one's self and stick with new thoughts and behaviors.

There is a phrase that says the longest distance we will travel is the 18 inches from your head to your heart. Current research supports the use of body based methods. I am a Brene Brene Brown Daring Way Facilitator. I also use a combination of music therapy, psychodrama, advanced integrative therapy, and Brainspotting. Brainspotting can be used to process traumatic events, remove creative blocks in artists, and improve sports performance. Brainspotting is also very helpful in stopping unwanted behaviors such as smoking, over eating, phobias, and addiction.

How engaged are you with life? How do you relate to those around you? These are questions I explore with my clients by allowing our relationship to guide the process. As Irvin Yalom very well stated, "Therapy should not be theory driven, but relationship driven." I am a firm believer of this sentiment; and will accompany you on what I believe is an on-going journey towards self-growth. Through a therapeutic relationship that is safe, genuine, and caring; I aim to guide my client towards insight that makes a path towards change, understanding, and/or acceptance more feasible.

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.
