My Approach to Helping
Hi! Thanks for stopping by my page. I know how difficult it can be to ask for help and you're taking a major first step by being here.
I believe that all people deserve to be treated with respect and deserve to have a comfortable, safe, and non-judgmental space to tell their story. I provide people with the opportunity to share their pain, desires and aspirations in this space and offer a collaborative approach for healing and growth. I am also passionate about helping adults get their needs met in their relationships! I provide individuals with the skills, tools and support they deserve to make lasting changes and improve their quality of life. I will work diligently with you and help you navigate through the challenges or hurt you are currently experiencing.
Connection, Relationships and Healing from Emotional Pain:
I believe (and research shows) that in relationships, people want to feel (at a minimum): love, belonging, support, safety, security, understanding, trust, and peace. However, many people are missing these key components from their relationships. Perhaps during childhood we didn't feel a sense of security or safety, physically or emotionally. Maybe because of our experiences it is difficult to trust. When these needs are not met, we can feel intense emotional pain. We can feel overwhelmed, lost, unbalanced, disconnected, depressed, anxious, stuck, or hopeless. As a therapist, I can provide you with the skills, tools and support to help you through this!
Individual and Couples and Family Therapy (fertility treatment, pregnancy, post-partum anxiety, depression and loss):
As a woman who has undergone fertility treatment, loss, high-risk pregnancy, post-partum anxiety and being a parent, I am passionate about helping women and couples who are navigating through similar waters. Sometimes this process can feel painful, exhausting, mechanical, and disconnecting - I am here to help validate your experience and work through those difficulties as they arise. As a certified L1 Gottman Couples Therapist who has worked with hundreds of couples, I can tell you it IS possible to reconnect. It IS possible to build a stronger, loving relationship than the one you had before. My approach includes John and Julie Gottman's research-based strategies and principles for making relationships and marriage work! Let's work together to strengthen the foundation of your relationship and rebuild it in the way that you want and deserve!
