Pain is inevitable in life, but does need to stop us from living fully and beautifully. Through therapy I aim to help those I work with live deeper, happier lives with more balance and fulfillment. I believe that a strong, supportive relationship between the therapist and client is a fundamental factor in treatment. I see therapy as a collaborative process and empower those I work with to help direct the course of treatment. Additionally, I take a holistic view that includes attending to societal power structures that can contribute to and exacerbate the difficulties people face.
I am a psychotherapist trained in a variety of approaches designed to help you reach your personal/relationship goals and self-understanding: includes hypnotherapy, EMDR, coaching, sex therapy, employee assistance, cognitive-behavioral and family systems. We can decide which approaches will be most effective for you on your healing journey. In a warm, comfortable environment, you can explore new insights and learn new skills to achieve emotional well-being and harmonious relationships. I pride myself on listening with compassion, without judgment.
Relationships are one of the most important ways we can experience happiness, joy, fulfillment and meaning in our lives. Relational therapy aims to repair, strengthen and secure relationships that are facing challenges. It holds the belief that if we are open to exploring the maladaptive patterns and dynamics within our relationships, we can find new ways of relating to each other than feel more secure, grounded, open and positive.
We all are facing challenging times, and none of us are immune to the complexities of our world, or our place within it. These days, it’s easy to feel lost, demotivated, stuck, fearful or overwhelmed, but… that’s okay. These feelings are normal. However, what you do with your feelings will determine how you approach your relationships, your career, your parenting or yourself. You already have everything you need within; you may just need help along the way to draw it out. At times like these, it’s easy to lose sight of your greatest asset: yourself. At Asset Therapy, we help you rediscover you.
I specialize in helping individuals and couples with anger-management, trauma, PTSD, anxiety and depression. My goal is to help people improve their communication skills so that they can express their needs, and feel understood, rather than continue to feel stuck and alone. I am also experienced with Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) which helps people cope with stress, and prevents them from getting caught up in negative cycles.
Relationships are complicated and often very stressful and upsetting. I work with people who are grappling to communicate better with the most important people in their lives. Wanting to be heard, understood, supported and loved is human nature. This can sometimes be a challenge without outside, neutral help. Misunderstandings often can get in the way of intimate relationships, leaving each person feeling alone, disillusioned and their actions misconstrued. I see my job as someone who can help navigate these confusing dynamics and openly talk about the possible underlying feelings that led to these behaviors in the first place.
