"The majority of my work has been centered around the neurobiology of trauma, and early attachment experiences that form and shape relationships, beliefs, feelings and behaviors in the present. Some common challenges and themes have been addictive and compulsive behaviors, relationship difficulty, depression, loneliness, anger, anxiety, self loathing and shame. A few clients come in with clarity on what they want to talk about, but most just know they are struggling and aren't sure where to begin. My job will be to create the environment and provide the tools to help us uncover, explore and integrate the unconscious and conscious parts of the psyche."
