My Approach to Helping

Things happen in the right therapy relationship that are hard to put into words. The experience can surprise us.

In our therapy relationship, there is room for your most authentic, evolving self (all parts). There is the opportunity to understand and embrace your deepest needs and wishes. As together we learn more about the deepest you, I'll support your own wisdom and insights to surface which begin moving you toward change and growth at a pace that fits you. It is my intention to listen deeply and without judgment, and offer the thoughts and questions that invite these insights and discoveries. I'll support your courage to try new approaches to old patterns of behavior and thinking, born of wounds and fear, that are maintaining strife. It's easy to feel isolated when you're struggling, but feeling fully accepted and deeply known in therapy can allow that feeling of 'being alone in it' to fade and invite a deeper sense of belonging in the world.

I work with individuals and couples and have a special interest in parenting special needs and high need children and how this changes our relationship with ourselves and others. Most often I work with clients for several years or more. I draw on several therapeutic schools of thought; psychodynamic, psychoanalytic, existential and humanistic, but am led by you, the client in front of me and the discoveries we make together.

More Info About My Practice

I am drawn to working with clients going through unexpected life events and changes. Loss and change are inevitable in life, but I believe hopelessness and disconnection are not. With help in the therapy relationship, the process of discovering one's unique meaning in these experiences can lead to seeing the world with fresh eyes.

My interest in working with parents of special needs and high needs children is driven by this possibility. This unique experience, can require a lot of extra support and care for parents, while also offering unique opportunities for growth and change and altering one's approach to life. I offer facilitated support groups for parents who are navigating this territory. In this cared for, protected space, parents can express what can be hard to say and discover resources and hope as well.
