Are you feeling stuck in a difficult circumstance or a relational conflict? Do you find yourself limited by fear, anxiety, lack of motivation or clarity? Are you discerning whether or not to stay in a current relationship? This can be a painful space. I believe we all have access to deep, still waters within us that can guide and direct us to deeper peace and clarity. Sometimes, we struggle to access that "knowing part" of us. I have 20 years of helping guide men, women, couples, adolescents and families gain skills and find deeper, more peaceful waters in seasons of grief, anxiety, depression, divorce & couple's conflict.

Are you a perfectionist? A high achiever? But despite how much you have accomplished, you still feel that you are hindered by low self-esteem and lack of confidence? Struggle with asking for help? I understand how isolated you may feel when you are not able to get the help you need. Isolation leads to feelings of loneliness and that heavy feeling of loneliness is such a huge burden to carry. Imagine working with a warm, compassionate, and validating therapist, who can hold your hand and walk you through the process of untangling the stories of your life, making the unconscious conscious, and helping you become your authentic self.

Often individuals who have experienced on-going internal or relational conflict feel stuck in a cycle that they can't seem to control no matter how many attempts or strategies they try. In the confusion and exhaustion, they give up and give in to hopelessness, low self-worth, shame, anger, and fear. This leads into more alienation, suffering, and despair. Those who want to heal the relationship with themselves and with those they love can rediscover the self that is trapped under all of the pain, anger, and fear. With empathic support, knowledge, and adequate resources, healing is possible.

You will be in a space where you can feel safe, not judged and free to explore your issues/conflicts in your most intimate relationships, friendships and work. You can be freed of the issues or traumas from the past that have held you back. I work in both short and long term therapy depending on your needs. Perhaps you want help to free yourself of old habits and repetitive patterns that have been hurtful in the past and to recognize toxic relationships. I also help couples to improve communication and to understand one another in order to create or improve a loving bond.

We all accrue wounds in the course of living. Finding the right therapist is the best way to find help to heal wounds. To support those who seek change, particularly in relationships, I take an authentic, non-judgmental approach that is free of trend-driven techniques. By providing a safe and respectful space that values and nourishes the healing process, clients can expect non-pathologized care. Given that conflict comes in many forms, my therapeutic approach is equally personalized to each individual and couple's needs.

My approach to therapy is compassionate and respectful. In addition to gaining greater understanding of your self, therapy is an opportunity to learn specific skills and techniques for meeting your goals and feeling better. I value therapy as a time to face difficulties and break free from unsatisfying ways of feeling, thinking, or being in relationships with others. As a clinical psychologist, I am experienced in helping clients struggling with anxiety, low mood, painful or intense emotions, problems in close relationships, and self-criticism.

Are you suffering from a loss -- or losses -- in your life? Have you lost a loved one? A relationship? Are you anticipating a loss? Loss and grief can be so painful, both emotionally and physically. What was, no longer is. The people and things you believed you could count on may no longer be available. Loss and grief can feel disorienting, like the ground under you has crumbled or shifted and you no longer know what’s up or down. You might feel stuck. You might feel like nothing will be good again. Loss and grief can bring up all kinds of feelings and reactions. They’re all valid.

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.
