The therapeutic relationship is a powerful vehicle for transformation. Through developing a trusting relationship where all feelings are welcome, I teach people to trust themselves and thus live more satisfying and authentic lives. My primary theoretical approach is object relations. This implies that relationships imprinted in early life play out and can be reworked in therapy wherein the client can internalize healthier ways of interacting. I am privileged to engage in this deeply personal process with people motivated by their suffering to find more effective ways to relate to themselves and others.
One of my specialties is bereavement, with expertise including the loss of children and survivors of suicide. The grieving process is a natural one in which my role is to accompany without judgment and to create a container in which grief can unfold in its own unique way. I am certified in EMDR therapy, a potent tool for healing many types of trauma.
I love to work with people and to witness the profound changes that occur over the course of psychotherapy. It is my greatest joy to support people in realizing their dreams and living more authentically. It is truly a privilege and an honor.
