Additionally, changes in a relationship, a job, or other life transitions can throw any of us off balance for a time.
If I were to choose one word to describe my therapeutic approach, I would say "empowerment". Power is essential for good health. Attitudes that generate a feeling of powerlessness not only lead to low self-esteem, but also deplete the physical body of energy. Some negative self-talk is normal for all of us, but when it persists for a long time, it can rob us of joy and confidence. If you are feeling overwhelmed, depressed, stuck in a negative situation, or unhappy with your life circumstances, therapy is a good place to begin restoring your inner power and confidence.

While I am trained as a generalist and enjoy working with a wide range of presenting concerns, I have expertise in areas related to complex trauma, relationship difficulties, family issues, impulse-control, suicidality, self-injurious behavior, and identity concerns.
To have someone open their heart in therapy and trust me with it, is truly an honor. Therapy can be hard. Often times people share things with me they haven’t shared with anyone else. Because of this, I believe the relationship between client and therapist is the most important factor in therapy and what I focus on building first with you. Moreover, I take an integrative approach to therapy, conceptualizing from psychodynamic and interpersonal theories while utilizing interventions from EFT, DBT, CBT and interpersonal theories. All of my work is grounded in multicultural and strength-based views.

Psychotherapy is a process leading to understanding one's true self and struggles. Once difficulties begin to "make sense", how to tackle personal problems becomes clearer. No one's depression, relationship issues, anxiety or self-esteem difficulties are exactly like anyone else's. Therefore, it is important to understand your unique life. Current problems may be influenced by past assumptions we have made. It is important to recognize these assumptions for what they are, just assumptions, and not necessarily the truth. Good therapy results in personal understanding, but more importantly, a greater sense of being alive.

Relationship Issues Therapists
While need for human connection appears to be innate, the ability to form healthy, loving relationships is learned. Some evidence suggests that the ability to form a stable relationship starts to form in infancy, in a child's earliest experiences with a caregiver who reliably meets the infant's needs for food, care, warmth, protection, stimulation, and social contact. Such relationships are not destiny, but they are theorized to establish deeply ingrained patterns of relating to others. The end of a relationship, however, is often a source of great psychological anguish.
