My background is in Psychodynamic and Attachment theory but I have recognized the value of many evidence based approaches in addressing trauma, anxiety and depression.
Everyone has a unique story to tell. Sometimes the story is full of joy and laughter and sometimes it has challenges and heartbreak. For most of us, it falls somewhere in between. By taking the time to share and understand your story, you are given the opportunity to understand how your past shapes your current existence and how past relationships inevitably impact current ones. By understanding and owning your story, you give yourself the opportunity to choose how you want to go forward. One's past does not have to define one's future.

What I value most in my work is the therapeutic relationship that is built. It can be difficult to talk and open up when we don't feel comfortable, so I remind you that we are just two humans working together in an effort to heal and grow. That's how I see a counseling relationship- as a team! Counseling can be really tailored to each individual. We can work together to figure out the approaches that work best for you- whether it's doing an art therapy intervention, using cognitive behavioral therapy to challenge unhelpful thoughts, or simply just processing out loud and using me as a sounding board or a supportive ear to listen.

At the core of my treatment philosophy is the belief that families heal when movement occurs and people begin to unlock their potential and capacity for growth. Often there is underlying pain and/or trauma that needs to be addressed in order for the system to recover and break the cycle. Whether the results of the family dysfunction is abuse, addiction, estrangement, divorce, suicide, broken communication paths, or some other behavior, treatment can provide relief.
