I work primarily with adults over 30 years of age. A few of my specialties include: depression, grief, codependency, loss of meaning, relationship/family conflict, major life transitions, infidelity, and anxiety issues. I have advanced specialty working with GLBTQ+, gender non-conforming/transgender development as well as poly & non-traditional families. In addition, I have a passion for those who identify as Highly Sensitive and Anxious Attachment styles.
The field of Depth Psychology we know today came from the original works of Carl Jung and Sigmund Freud. Both Jung and Freud sought awareness and examination of all things human, in particular our unconscious selves. A Depth approach looks across a wide field of knowing, from direct personal experience to culture and human existence as a whole. Image, dream, and metaphor can be helpful components in uncovering our true selves.
Helping to develop healthy, happy lives and relationships within the queer, poly, lifestyle, and sexual minority communities.
I believe relationships are the cornerstone of all human development. Our health has everything to do with our ability to have trusting, stable, loving, and overall fulfilling relationships.
Codependency can be defined as the tendency to put others needs before your own; accommodating to others to such a degree that you tend to discount or ignore your own feelings, desires and basic needs. In codependency our self-esteem depends largely on how well we please, take care of and/or solve problems for someone else (or many others). In a sense, then only really know yourself through your role with others. Moving towards greater balance between self and others is possible!
Depression can show up in many different flavors and intensities. It can affect our sleep, our appetite, motivation, and certainly our relationships. Some types of depression makes us feel sad and hopeless, while others can feel agitating, even rageful. Regardless, depression takes over our lives and negatively impacts our functioning. Getting to the root of what's pressing down on us is key to recovering.
