I enjoy working from an integrative approach, meaning I believe there is no one therapeutic modality that suits every client. However, underlying most of my approaches is an attachment perspective. Sadly, far too many of our relationships fall short of giving us a sense of being loved and belonging. We end up living too much of our lives caught in our own or other's perfectionism, passivity, anger, fear, judgment, shame, withdrawal, disinterest, betrayal, abuse, or worse. The harder we try to rid our relationships of these problems, the more unloved and alone we feel.

Anxiety spins in your mind. It’s like a car on a racetrack of thoughts where the only way off seems to be a brief pit stop during the few high points of your day. Your mind turns to familiar scenarios, images, and disasters over and over again. It’s not just stress from work or the responsibility of parenting. The worry and fear get so bad sometimes that they might boil over into panic. Then the same circular pattern starts all over again. Maybe you have become avoidant of the people or places that trigger these feelings but in the back of your mind you know they are still there. You know deep down that you can't go on like this.

In my work I make deep connections with people as we meet and talk honestly. Each person who meets with me seeks to find meaning and purpose in life. Part of this process is helping the unconscious and the conscious talk to each other because many of our inner conflicts, i.e. fights with ourselves, come from a lack of communication between the conscious and unconscious. A part of the work is exploring what lies in shadow. This is not just repressed, ugly stuff. For many folks untapped gifts and potential lie in the unknown parts of themselves.

We often criticize ourselves for struggling or try to grin and bear it, but these options often make things worse or at best maintain the status quo. Therapy, however, can help us learn how to navigate life's challenges and be kinder to ourselves in the process.
