"I would describe my approach to therapy as 'person and relationship centered', collaborative in nature and striving to deeply attune to my client (s)' strengths and inner wisdom, to utilize as fuel for our process. My process tends to be depth oriented and draws from attachment based theories. From session to session, we will attend to your early and current life challenges, and your responses, with compassion and curiosity. In the same way, we will learn to listen to your un-lived parts of your self, so they can contribute to your longer lasting healing."

We believe that mental health is an effect of feeling more deeply connected to ourselves and to others through the safety of transparent, emotionally honest relationships. How we communicate with ourselves and those we care about determines whether we possess integrity and feel empowered to express ourselves as human beings.

Relationships that build each other up in positive ways can help establish a safe attachment based relational foundation from which to grow.

Being surrounded by and participating in supportive communities are mutually beneficial.
