My Approach to Helping
You've been through a lot and are navigating really deep issues about who you are and what to be in your life. You've been hurt by those who should have protected you - religious communities, families, society - and you want to rediscover how to be. You may be deconstructing, reinventing, or re-stabilizing.
I'm here to support and challenge you. I value the depth of knowing ourselves and our experiences and will utilize my expertise to partner with you in your exploration. I believs people are resilient, strong, and relational. I am strongly influenced by justice and equality for all.
More Info About My Practice
At Relational Psych, I specialize in trauma and issues core to identity, specifically those who are deconstructing or reconstructing aspects of their sexuality, spirituality, gender, or ethnicity. I am certified in EMDR and practice from a client-centered, insight-oriented, psychodynamic approach with adults, adolescents, and children. I am relationally focused and utilize a strengths-based lens to empower, increase resilience, and promote positive well-being.
I also partner with psychologists at Relational Psych who specialize in ADHD testing and psychological assessment. If you do a psychological evaluation through the practice, I can follow up as your therapist to help you integrate treatment recommendations and help you make sense of things.
