My Approach to Helping
Whether working with individuals, couples, or families, my goal is to increase connection. Connection to ourselves by deepening self-awareness, insight, and options for change. Connection to our family members by overcoming the obstacles that cause pain and distress. Connection to our partners by learning how to reach for each other and maintain secure attachment. Change is not easy, there are lots of reasons we can become stuck. But with the right therapist and the right approach change and transformation are possible. My style as a therapist is eclectic, but firmly rooted in Mentalization, Narrative, and Emotion-Focused modalities. Specific to addictions, I am expert in Motivational Interviewing, Harm Reduction, and Moderation Management. If you or a loved one is being impacted by addiction and are unsure about what to do, I can help.
