My Approach to Helping

Do you have an adept ability to flex and bend to the needs of your environment? Do you struggle to identify and prioritize your own needs? Are your goals and dreams collecting dust while you compulsively tend to those around you? Codependency often develops in the personality structures of people who are raised in chaotic and neglectful environments as children. A finely tuned childhood survival strategy, it leaves many feeling a complex array of emotions in their adulthood: emptiness, resentment, loneliness, and confusion. Your personal wishes become off-limits, you hide from others and you hide from yourself.
I blend a number of therapeutic orientations to help you find your voice in relationships, at work, at home, and in your life.

More Info About My Practice

My initial goal as a therapist is to help you mitigate any overwhelming mental and emotional symptoms you are experiencing. My hope over the course of the therapy is to help you to create more choices in your life, to help you relate more authentically to yourself and others and increase your sense of aliveness. I will attend to both content - what you say in the room - and process - what you do in the room. I will often guide you to become more curious about what is happening in your body. The body offers up a clear path to the parts of us that need attention and healing. This is, in my opinion, indispensable for therapy to affect deep change.
