About

Relationships are the foundation of our emotional experience. In infancy, it’s the bond we form with our caregivers. As we grow, we create relationships with those around us: relationships with family, teachers and peers, neighbors, friends, romantic interests, mentors and colleagues--and they all teach us something. Our behaviors, thoughts, and emotions have a layered history, constantly being influenced, altered, or reinforced through what we learn from and experience with others. And as we grow, the primary relationship we hold is the one we have with ourselves, and that relationship plays a role in how we experience others.
At one point or another in our lives, we may reevaluate an important relationship--whether it’s the one we have with ourselves, or the relationships we have with others. Perhaps we’re aware of what’s hurting, or at other times, we can’t pinpoint what it is or how to feel better. Sometimes, we all could use extra support to nurture what gives life meaning.
My mindset is everyone is doing the best they can with what they know. My role as a therapist is to help you make meaning of what you do know, to shed light on patterns that may be existing outside of conscious awareness, and to provide an alternative perspective. I strive to create safety in the therapeutic relationship and a secure base for your growth.
