Marriage and Family Therapist Associate
Supervisor: Alana Olgive, LMFT
I help couples and individuals explore, understand, and express their emotions, needs and desires.
Provides free initial consultation
Practicing Since: 2021
I work with individuals, couples and families. Some specialties include pregnant and postpartum people, survivors of trauma, cross-cultural couples, and queer and non-monogamous folks. Social justice is foundational to my work. I work to create a non-judgmental and welcoming space for all.
I use emotionally-focused therapy to help couples connect in a deeper, more vulnerable way. So often, couples are caught in a negative cycle of interaction. We will identify your attachment needs and your emotions and work towards expressing them openly to each other. I have completed these trainings: Emotionally Focused Individual Therapy (EFIT): Attachment-based Interventions to Treat Trauma, Anxiety, and Depression training Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy – ICEEFT Externship
I use mindfulness-based therapy to help you bring awareness to your thoughts, feelings, and bodily experiences, working towards enabling you to non-judgmentally accept them. Together, we will approach your experience with curiosity. We will work on regulating your emotions through breath and increasing your ability to be compassionate towards yourself.
I often hear clients tell me, "I should be doing this." I ask, "Where did you learn that?" Together, we will examine the socio-cultural narratives that have impacted the way that you perceive yourself and your relationships. We will consider what narratives fit and what do not fit. We will explore the story that you are currently living out, leading you to a deeper understanding of yourself. We will work to re-story your narrative so that you feel empowered in your own life.
I completed the labor and postpartum doula training at Birthingway College of Midwifery and bring this knowledge to my work. I understand that pregnancy and postpartum is a huge time of transition. I will support you through making sense of this new identity and huge new responsibility. We will explore how it impacts your relationships and your sense of self. We will celebrate the joy you experience and honor the hardship of this journey.
Opening up a relationship can be both exciting and nerve-wracking. Together, we will explore ways to make this relationship feel safe and secure, as well as exciting and explorative. We will discuss your boundaries, needs, and desires. We will examine socio-cultural narratives about relationships to find what fits and what does not. We will unpack your emotional responses to this experience in order to create a deeper connection between you are your partner(s).
As a Marriage and Family Therapy, I am trained to work relationally with people. I consider how your relationships impact your sense of self and the attachment experiences that you bring into your relationship. Together, we will work to deepen your connection with your partner(s), helping you become more able to express your needs, boundaries and desires.
