My Ideal Client

My clients are individuals and couples who seek a safe, non-judgemental space to better understand their patterns of interaction in their relationships with others and with themselves. Couples who work with me often seek to foster a more secure bond, increase intimacy, improve communication, and make mindful shifts in the ways they respond and react to one another. Individuals who work with me seek to cultivate a more present, grounded, loving, and compassionate relationship with their selves.

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, who have complex trauma, 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, LGBTQIA+ allied, and HAES and body trust informed.

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 therapuetic relationship forms between the therapist and the client. Attachment theory guides me in how I help build that relationship with my clients. In couples therapy, I will help you understand how your attachment style and patterns interacts with your partner's attachment style and patterns.

  • Emotionally Focused External link

    Sometimes when we're stressed, tired, spread too thin, or triggered we can struggle to connect emotionally with our partners. I use Emotionally Focused Therapy to help couples reconnect, both with themselves and with each other.

  • Couples Counseling External link

    I'm passionate about helping couples navigate the complexity of relationships. I draw from two models of couple and relationship therapy based in attachment theory called Intimacy From the Inside Out and Emotionally Focused Therapy. I use these models to 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 your personal integrity.

  • Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) External link

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 and attachment theory.

  • Self-Esteem External link
