I provide a safe and secure environment where you can feel safe to share deeply personal thoughts and feelings. My psychodynamic process requires both courage and motivation to change. You will move from where you are to where you want to be. Initial concerns may be about self esteem, work or relationships but effective psychodynamic process identifies hidden patterns and themes that cloud the present and hinder the future. Patients describe the process as "empowering" and "life changing", leaving them with increased energy, confidence and creativity for their lives.

As an individual therapist, my goal is to create a safe, trusting, respectful, and nonjudgmental environment in which we can engage in a process of collaborative reflection aimed at helping you become more connected with all parts of your self. In this process, we can work together to understand how and why you relate as you do with yourself and others.

Therapy is a relational dynamic process. I work to create a nurturing, compassionate, safe space that honors individual healing processes. My integrative holistic approach to psychotherapy means that I combine attachment theory, neuroscience, cognitive behavioral theory, and psychodynamic theory with the wisdom and insights from mindfulness-based practices, creative expression, and nature. Working with me, you will gain insight into your emotional world, understand how you work, learn what gives you comfort and contentment during difficult times, develop new coping skills to help during times of anxiety/depression, and make changes in your life so you can live more fully.

Together we attend to concerns and uncertainties, “what ifs”, and possibilities for enduring change. We work with intention to make possible the softening of stress, fear, or worry. We watch for the budding return of relief, clarity, ease, and hope. Potential shifts make possible the lessening of physical symptoms, as well as allowing for fear to settle; for intimacy, creativity, and inspiration to flourish; for thinking to clear and decisions to be made, action taken, and a deep sense of aliveness felt.

I believe my job as a therapist is to help you connect with the best version of yourself. My style is active, collaborative, understanding, and empowering. I see you as the expert of your story; and myself as an expert in guiding you through sharing your experiences in hopes of understanding what makes you who you are. When you can make sense of who you are, and what filters you may see and interact with in the world, I believe you can allow for something new to emerge. My goal is to provide a space for you to speak your emotional truths in hopes of living and loving in a more whole-hearted way.

Life is difficult. Feeling better is possible. We all have the right and the ability to feel some peace and acceptance about our lives; the things we can control and the things we can not. We may often believe the negative thoughts we have (that we often make up) and act accordingly. You can change your life, your outlook and the way you think and feel about yourself and your relationships. I believe changes and growth occur when an individual is able to challenge their thoughts, examine their perspectives and learn how to be true to themselves.

Through the process of psychotherapy, I work together with my clients to help them: develop a better understanding of their histories, triggers and patterns in order to get unstuck and create new endings to old stories; build coping skills and capacity for resiliency in order to face stressors and fears that are blocking growth; learn to live authentically in order to create a life congruent with what matters to them. I feel passionate about my work. I always hope to help people realize their worth and competency so they can feel empowered to take charge of their lives and live with more purpose and fulfillment.

I believe everyone longs to live a meaningful, full life. I know for me, there have been times that this felt out of reach and difficult to imagine. I help people who feel anxious, disconnected, and confused connect with themselves and a sense of meaning in their life. When this connection is restored I've seen strong feelings of uncertainty, doubt, and fear transform into confidence, hope, and creativity.

I am passionate about working with couples and have advanced training in Emotionally-Focused Couple Therapy (EFT).

I am a warm, caring therapist seeking to help those who feel stuck, overwhelmed, or incapable of living up to their true potential. I believe that change comes from within, and to be able to change, we must feel secure, grounded, and clearly understand what is keeping us from that change. I'm open to allowing the client to guide their believed best route to change because, ultimately, the client knows where they hurt, and personal agency is most suitable for a fulfilling life. Openness, Humor, and Commitment are the values that represent my style.

I am a trauma-informed bodyworker and Somatic Experiencing Practitioner offering a body-centered approach for the healing of trauma and chronic pain. Traditional therapy approaches often have difficulty addressing the bodily effects of trauma, anxiety and depression. Habits and patterns that get "stuck" in the body can keep these types of issues from resolving, even after many years of successful therapy. As an adjunct to traditional therapy, my body-centered approach to Somatic Experiencing provides a unique opportunity to support the physical integration of mental and emotional change that help people recovering from trauma to truly FEEL better.

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.
