Although we live in an age of endless connectivity, many of us struggle with building and maintaining genuine interpersonal bonds. If you’re currently feeling overwhelmed trying to navigate new stages in your life, friendships or partnership, I would be honored to support you. During our time together, we will explore the past to better understand the beliefs we have in the present. We will work together to build self-awareness and attain more meaningful connections with others and ourselves.
I take a warm, slow, and attentive approach using integrative psychodynamic therapy, giving you the space to discover what you need in relationship to self or in relationship to others. I have experience helping couples learn how to best support their partners. I also work with individuals who are navigating major life transitions, cancer, or grief.
I hope to create a relaxing space for you to find stability and hear yourself or your loved ones more clearly. It's easy to get caught up in holding everything together that we forget to listen. As your therapist, I will listen carefully and hold space for you. Sim eu falo português.
