About

Often in my practice I work with people who appear put together, but inside feel lonely, lost and disconnected. Many times these feelings are a response to experiencing trauma. We tend to think traumatic events only include extreme experiences like war and assault, but trauma can also occur through more nuanced events that break our trust in others, ourselves and the world. Both kinds of trauma trigger our nervous system in ways that can affect our health and limit our ability to have close, meaningful relationships. BUT neuroscience has shown that over time the human brain can rewire itself to new ways of thinking and responding.
Through therapy, we explore how to deconstruct the barriers that make us feel alone in the world and counter the ways shame limits our capacity for joy. By identifying challenges and trauma, we can navigate new perspectives, develop language to understand your experiences and connect the dots between life events that have compounded each other.
Like most meaningful things we do, working with a good therapist is a practice, not a quick fix, but starting early in our work I can give you tools to understand and care for your distress. The best part of my job is watching people over time develop an enjoyable friendship with themselves, leading to deeper relationships with others.
