My Approach to Helping

We enter life as brand-new beings, open to the world in its entirety - but along the way our experiences, heartaches, and hardships can lead us far away from ourselves and make it harder to connect with the people we love. I help individuals, couples, and families in therapy by offering a safe space for you to investigate and integrate old hurts, understand yourself and your partner more deeply, and access your deepest inner resources.

I work primarily from an attachment-lens, which means I am interested in our early experiences in relationships, as well as the messages we've internalized in our bodies and nervous systems about belonging, safety, and care. I help clients begin to tune into their authentic emotional experience to build self-compassion and self-understanding. I also utilize aspects of internal family systems, somatic therapy approaches, and transpersonal psychology models. In my work with couples and relationships, I draw on aspects of emotionally-focused therapy and other attachment perspectives, and I work to bring greater attention and understanding to the emotional processes occurring beneath the surface, making vulnerability safer, and giving our emotions more space to be attended to and understood. I also incorporate a family systems focus to explore families-of-origin and potential intergenerational patterns that might be showing up in your current relationship.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Every person is different, and every person comes to therapy with their own story and reasons for seeking support. I feel honored to support you wherever you are. I also work specifically in the following areas:
Relationship conflict, rebuilding lost trust, and improving attachment.
Understanding your emotions and how they show up in your body.
Connecting with your intuition and building healthy spirituality.
Reclaiming your life after spiritual, religious, or cultic abuse.
Navigating family conflict, ruptures, and major transitions.

Why Going to Therapy Does Not Mean You are Weak or Flawed

There is a common misconception about therapy that tells us that seeking therapy means there is something wrong with you, or you have failed in some way. In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. Seeking support is brave, and it means you are committed to becoming the best version of yourself, breaking patterns, and healing from past experiences. Having a trusted professional who you can confide in and who can ask you questions or offer different perspectives can be a wonderful way to build self-compassion, self-trust, and self-empowerment. As a therapist, I approach my clients from a strengths-based perspective - you come to our work together with a whole set of skills and strengths that got you through life up to this point, and that is something to be valued, even if your context has changed to where some of those skills aren't working the same way they used to.
