My Approach to Helping

In our therapy and counseling work together, we will uncover your ideas of health and happiness and help you move toward them with confidence and ease. We will use the tools of mindfulness, recognizing unhelpful patterns driven by anxiety or depression, and revealing old hurts with kindness. You will be able to let go of unhelpful patterns and habits you may have developed to cope that are no longer helping you to manage difficult feelings or circumstances. You will learn to successfully address and diminish old coping skills or fears to regain your balance, hope and energy again. You will learn to recognize your Inner Critic as separate from who you actually are, and how to resolve its negative influence for good.

More Info About My Practice

I have been working with couples, adults and families on a variety of challenges for almost a decade, and my studies of Mindfulness and the Neurobiology of Attachment allow me to address a wide variety of topics and difficulties with confidence and skill. I was originally trained in a Solution Focused and a Narrative approach, yet have found that as my counseling experience evolves, my style is ever-evolving and deepening. I have recognized that my approach is more Relational and Neurobiologically based: I believe that what has happened to us within the relationships in our lives can only be healed in relationship, and that the therapeutic relationship is a powerful vehicle to overall growth and transformation.

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

I particularly enjoy the process of helping Stepmoms redefine their roles in a way that gives them joy, empowerment and freedom within their family lives.
I also have a passion for helping those with an an Anxious Attachment style find belonging and connection within their closest relationships.

Groups I Work With

    I work from an attachment-based perspective, and use my knowledge of neurobiology and mindful self-compassion to help you make sense of the patterns you may be unintentionally repeating in your life and may be causing pain for you and the people you care about. I am able to help you if you are struggling with issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, relationship conflicts, troubling thoughts or chronic pain. As a particular area of interest, I especially enjoy helping people recover from injuries of growing up with a Narcissistic or self-absorbed parent.
