My Approach to Helping

I specialize in helping folks who struggle with anxiety, depression, low-self esteem, interpersonal deficits, and other symptoms of complex trauma. Early childhood traumatic experiences, particularly attachment wounding, can have lasting effects on the development of self and rupture one's sense of internal safety. If you struggle with making decisions, feeling "lost," lacking a sense of identity, or if you experience attachment issues, you can benefit from working with me to explore and process your emotions while having a corrective attachment experience in the safety of our therapeutic relationship.

I use an attachment-based psychodynamic approach to aid in building insight and awareness around pastpresent feelings, behaviors, and interpersonal patterns. Various methods will be used to empower you to explore and process your emotions because they will guide you toward creating meaningful change that feels authentic and is in alignment with your values.

I am a firm believer in the phrase, "It's the relationship that heals." It is my sincerest hope to provide the safety and encouragement you need to explore your deepest feelings, hopes, needs, and desires. You are not alone in this and you deserve the time and space to create the life you want. Drop me a line. :)
