My Ideal Client

I work with both couples and adult individuals. I specialize in the treatment of complex trauma individually and relationally. I help couples foster a more secure bond, resolve past wounds, strike a balance between connectedness and personal identity, and make mindful shifts in the ways they respond and react to one another. I help individuals ground, resolve past trauma, make room for emotions and needs, and cultivate empowerment and pride in identity and selfhood.

My Approach to Helping

As an emotionally focused therapist, I believe that emotion is a powerful agent of both change and connection. Problems tend to happen when the dominant emotional experiences that underlie experience are not fully conscious or felt. Change occurs when emotions are interacted with differently. In couples therapy, we work toward change by accessing (making explicit) the dominant emotional experiences and then creating new ways of expressing these emotional experiences to allow change to happen. In individual therapy, we work toward creating safe containment for your emotional world. My style is collaborative, empathetic, genuine, intuitive, and directive. A combination of attachment theory, humanism, and psychodynamic theory guides my work. I also incorporate tools and skills from Acceptance and Commitment Therapy which I can use with both couples and individuals. I work best with folks who are able to be self reflective and who identify as highly sensitive.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I utilize an intersectional lens to my work and I am trans-affirming, anti racist, feminist, HAES and body trust informed, and LGBTQIA+ allied (I am personally bisexual.)

Techniques I Use

Specialties

  • Attachment Theory External link

    I incorporate attachment work into every session and it is a grounding theory of my style and approach to providing therapy. Therapy is most effective when a therapeutic relationship forms between the therapist and the client. Attachment theory guides me in how I build that relationship with my clients.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    EFT is used with both couples and individuals. Sometimes when we're stressed, tired, spread too thin, or triggered we can struggle to connect emotionally with our partners or ourselves. I use both S. Johnson's Emotionally Focused Therapy and L. Greenberg's Emotion Focused Therapy to help make sense of negative cycles of interaction, connect to underlying emotion, balance identity with relationship, and become skillful in both self regulation and co-regulation.

  • Couples Counseling External link

    I'm passionate about helping couples navigate the complexity of relationships. I help couples learn to communicate skillfully (especially about emotional needs), negotiate conflicting needs, become less reactive and more receptive, make repairs, and choose new behaviors that are more aligned with personal values.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) External link

    ACT is an important part of my toolkit as a therapist because it's all about learning how to make room for emotions mindfully and with deep compassion.

Issues I Treat

Specialties

  • PTSD External link

    I specialize in helping people understand the ways trauma, especially complex trauma, impacts their lives, their relationships, and their emotional and behavioral symptoms or experiences. Using somatic therapy, mindfulness, nueroscience, and psychoeducation, I facilitate an integration of traumatic life experiences so you can regain safety, personal power, agency, and self trust.

  • Relationship / Marriage Issues External link

    I specialize in couple and relationship therapy for people living with trauma. Relationships can wound but they can also be tremendous healing agents. I will help you learn how to relate to your own or your partner’s trauma and how it shows up in the relationship in new ways that foster connection, intimacy, security, and mastery. We will work together to communicate skillfully, negotiate conflicting needs, become less reactive and more receptive, make repairs, and choose new behaviors together.

  • Depression External link

    I help people explore the nature of their depression and gain insight on a deeper level using psychodynamic therapy, ACT, and attachment theory.

  • Women's Issues External link

    I am passionate about offering women a safe space in therapy where a sense of solidarity and communion and can be felt. I support women who have been victims of domestic and sexual violence in the past toward post traumatic growth.

  • Self-Esteem External link

    Improving self esteem and recovering from perfectionism tend to be themes for the clients I work with.
