Announcement icon During the COVID pandemic, I am providing psychotherapy and consultation sessions via a secure Telehealth platform (video or phone).
Welcome. I work with children, adolescents, and adults coping with relational, anxiety, traumatic, and mood disorders. In my practice, therapy often entails exploring the impact of early attachment experiences on our views of self and our ability to form close, meaningful relationships throughout life. In our work together, you will be treated with warmth, empathy, and openness. The most important part of our work is the development of a trusting relationship. This relationship creates a thoughtful, safe space to explore your strengths, challenges, and goals. My approach to clinical work is largely relational and psychodynamic.
I work with individuals, couples, and families interested in exploring relationship patterns, effective communication, parenting and attachment, gender identity, teen/pre-teen experience, trauma and loss, adoption, and work / life balance. A particular specialty is working with couples seeking healing and reconnection through Emotion-Focused Therapy (EFT).
Psychological pain and dysfunctional relational dynamics can significantly impact how you feel about yourself, your job, the world around you, and relationships. Mindfully exploring your emotional experience and working through difficulties can help you build healthier relationships with yourself, others, and experience a more fulfilling life in the present.
