Healing occurs in the context of healthy relationships. I have extensive experience working with foster and adoptive families and the LGBTQ community. I have developed curriculum and trained nationally on topics related to adoption and parenting for both parents and professionals.I use an attachment focused therapy model which is grounded in the latest research.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
Many of us grew up in families where we did not learn how to communicate effectively or deal with conflict. If you have experienced early trauma, did not feel accepted by your family or community, you may have grown up believing that the world was not a very safe place. As adults you may find yourself unsure of how to navigate these challenges in your present relationships. You may find yourself triggered by your partnerspouse or children's behaviors, causing you to feel angry, hurt or rejected. Psychotherapy can help you to identify these triggers understand their impact and learn to find new ways of coping. You can learn to be proactive instead of reactive, feel better about yourself and improve your relationships.
