I specialize in children, adolescents, adults and families. I have helped clients suffering from trauma, depression, anxiety related disorders, behavioral issues, and grief and loss. My approach is person centered, focused on creating a caring and empathetic therapeutic relationship, while utilizing varied interventions, including psychodynamic, behavioral and cognitive based techniques, family systems theories, and attachment based strategies. In addition to more traditional approaches, I am a strong proponent of creative expressive therapy. Through expressive interventions my clients have learned to develop appropriate self expression of feelings, self confidence, effective coping and conflict resolution strategies, and pro social communication to help foster appropriate peer relations.

People who come to me for therapy find a pragmatic clinician who responds actively and efficiently to urgent problems and symptoms, including anxiety, depression, and bereavement. I quickly help identify and address how present day stressors are affecting my patients' relationships at work and at home. My admiration for people’s strength and resilience guides my work. I believe a good therapist should be a loyal ally, an advocate for a person’s best self, and a compassionate believer in human dignity and capacity for change. My style is warm. My personality is direct.

Psychotherapy is about becoming conscious of who you are, and how you impact your world. People come for psychotherapy when the ways in which they are acting, behaving, and living in the world are no longer working well for them. All kinds of events can shake us up to the point where we need help to adjust to something new. I like to think psychotherapy is an experience in which you can focus on feelings that keep you stuck, and on feelings that help you grow. It is a place to find your own creative solution to how best to live life.

I like to think that working with a therapist is a positive experience, one where you feel understood and cared for. I help children, adolescents, adults, couples and families navigate life transitions, relationships, social situations, feelings of being depressed and overwhelmed. Together, we look the ways your past has shaped the present, how you replay the same negative message, and help you to break out of unhealthy, deep rooted patterns. I offer you an opportunity to experience the ways in which your nervous system experiences emotions and trauma, and open a new pathway to a healthier way of relating to yourself and to others.

My clients want to succeed on their mental health journey. Our first session is used for both me and the client to provide and gather information and consider what major goals we would like to focus on during treatment. We then begin to build rapport and establish manageable and measurable objectives in the following sessions. Throughout the process, clients will be prompted to reflect on their progress. If a client requests homework to be done outside of sessions, I will work with them on finding achievable tasks that will not overwhelm them but will help them progress toward their mental health goals.

There is no single way to live a fulfilling life. All of us, at times need a safe place to talk about what we're experiencing. Expressing your thoughts and feelings to another person is an essential part of transformation. This is especially true when done in a therapeutic environment where you can explore new ideas and make your own decisions about your life without fear of intrusion from the other. My clinical intention is to help clients see and experience themselves in a new way.

Whether you have been in therapy in the past or if it is something you have never experienced before, there is so much to learn about yourself, every time. Give yourself the gifts of time and support, and learn to manage the present as you heal from your past. I am an experienced, compassionate, goal-directed clinician who can help you work through a transition, crisis, or simply be there to listen without judgement. It is ultimately all about the connection and your courage to commit to the process of finding your strengths and healthy means of coping with stressors.

Are you feeling overwhelmed and alone or suddenly feel that you cannot communicate your needs effectively to those most important in your life? I believe that through the connection that exists in a positive therapeutic relationship, individuals can learn to heal themselves and their relationships while fully experiencing all that life has to offer. As a team we will work together to discover and understand longstanding patterns of thinking and feeling which keep us from fully understanding ourselves and what motivates our behavior. With guidance and support clients will begin to better understand themselves.

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.
