My Approach to Helping
My work is primarily influenced by Attachment Theory, Internal Family Systems, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. My approach will vary based on each client’s unique needs and goals. Taking a trauma-informed view is important to me, and is something I continually strive to educate myself on. I have taken the Core Workshop with the Center for Healing Shame, and intend to continue this certification.
Clients who choose to work with me want to understand parts of themselves better, who may not understand why they feel or behave a certain way. They want to see tangible, healthy change in their relationships with others and in how they view themselves. They may be in life transitions that have brought on anxiety or depression, or old emotional pain from the past that feels difficult to cope with. I will often bring the focus to the client’s relationships in their life and with themself, because I believe a lot of healing can happen through connection. I have completed Gottman Level 1 training.
I work with teen and adult individuals and couples. I enjoy working with increasing understanding of relationships and how the past may be currently influencing them, social and generalized anxiety, panic, bettering communication, codependence, obsessive compulsive disorder, body dysmorphia, and mood difficulties. I am also open to working with other issues, please contact me if you are curious about working on something else.
I am an LGBTQIA+ ally, gender-affirming, and happy to work with people in relationships of any configuration.
