Areas of expertise include: Women’s and Men’s issues, Couples/ Family/Individual therapy (LGBTQ inclusive in all categories of therapy). Trauma in many forms, Depression and anxiety, ADHD, Bipolar disorder, acute stress and Post traumatic Stress Disorder, and personality disorders. I work with Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy model, and Internal Family Systems model. Most clients have internal conflicts that are difficult to sort, and difficult to understand how to mediate. From experience I have found We can build a gentler, more tolerant way of residing with conflict and pain.
We as humans need relief from feeling separate in our experiences. I offer a safe space and patience for healing. Most individuals struggle with strong self-critical narratives, some need help with self-harm (cutting, binge/purge cycles, addictions), anyone with difficulty regulating emotions, as well as relational infidelity and healing thereafter.
The simple truth is that for therapy to work you have to feel safe with me (in terms of being honest and open) and allowing me in to your process. We will be a great fit if you are wanting to look inward and learn safety, growth, esteem in SELF, and healing. Bring your honesty because the plan is for you to integrate what you learn in session into your life.
