My Approach to Helping

Do you feel frustrated in your relationships? Do you feel misunderstood, hurt, and alone? Do you find yourself being drawn to the same types of hurtful relationships again and again? Do you find yourself becoming overwhelmed or confused by your emotions? You are definitely not alone!

Everyone has a specific "love style" that they developed to help them navigate through difficult early life experiences. Although originally intended to keep himher safe, these love styles can often become obstacles to genuine, healthy connection later in life and enhance isolation and pain.

I help people "upgrade" their relationship skills by identifying their deeply legitimate yet unmet needs and finding more connecting ways to get them met. By identifying their love styles, cultivating awareness of their relationship patterns, developing healthier views of themselves and others, and adopting more helpful ways of beingconnecting, my clients enjoy the deep connection they so desire and come to even love themselves at a deeper level.

My approach utilizes Attachment-based Therapy, Emotion Focused Therapy, Brainspotting Trauma Therapy, and Enneagram Personality Inventory.

If my approach resonates with you, give me a call! I would love to help you get started on your journey to foster healthy, fruitful, and lasting relationships.

My Role as a Therapist

I consider YOU as the driver in the driver's seat; you determine the destination, have your hands on the wheel, and your feet on the acceleration and brake pedals. You set the direction and pace by which you journey towards your goal.

As your therapist, I am a passenger sitting right beside you, showing you some optional routes we can take to get to where you want to be. Some clients prefer a scenic, meaningful route where they get to understand themselves and their patterns on a deeper level and intentionally work towards health. Others prefer the more expedient, efficient route that helps them get to where they want to be as soon as possible. And others prefer a combination of both, making intentional journeys in bursts, then slowing down to reflect on their travels to reflect and integrate what they've learned.

Whatever your preference, I want to customize your therapy experience to best suit you as you are.
