My Approach to Helping

Do you feel lost, overwhelmed or disconnected from yourself and others? If you feel as though you are on autopilot and living life in monochrome sameness, I invite you to step back into vitality and meaning. I specialize in attachment injuries that show up in adulthood in ways that affect our relationships, identity and sense of purpose. As a trauma specialist, I treat the fallout from shock trauma or chronic stress that is often expressed in identity-related issues, PTSD, depression andor anxiety. Many of the clients who seek my services struggle with relationships centered around co-dependent behaviors and narcissistic abuse all of which can sometimes manifest as reactivity to perceived or real rejection or abandonment. Unfortunately, simply having insight into these reactions doesn't always curb the repeated cycles of reactivity or disconnection and these entrenched behaviors can affect how we relate to ourselves and others. My attachment focus extends from perinatalbirth trauma through menopausal symptoms and includes parents, those anticipating parenthood, single adults and those rebounding from successive unsatisfactory relationships.

More Info About My Practice

I have a knack for helping my clients get straight to the point so that they can start feeling relief at the beginning of their treatment and not after several sessions. I know the importance of feeling that there’s hope and that this therapy thing is going some place whether its rediscovering motivation or being able to sense that you are still grounded amidst change and the unexpected.

My experience stems from extensive training in trauma and also personal as well as professional experience navigating intersecting identities and different cultures. This has allowed me an expansive perspective on many issues to define what's "normal" and meaningful on an individual level.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

I've an inborn sense of injustice, but I've had years to accept that I'm probably a rebel at heart and have learned that there's a balance for everyone living in that nuance between autonomy and connection to others. We all want to "fit in" to some degree while maintaining our integrity and purpose. Somewhere in that grey, is our sense of who we are.

My view on psychotherapy is that it doesn't stand alone as some neutral ground of objective science. It's part philosophy, identity, politics, culture, spirituality, and biology because as humans we are as much a product of our environment as well as a source of change for what goes on around us. We are born with the capacity to sort all that out, but let's face it, sometimes that learning process doesn't go as intended. I believe that we can most definitely impact what's possible. Since we are born with the capacity to adapt, acquire new learning and automate helpful behaviors and thinking, we can reach beyond beingfeeling "stuck."

Much of my personal and professional life has been curious around how we can find that confident sense of self that helps us navigate our journey in the world towards fulfillment and I am dedicated to facilitating this outcome for those who seek this transformation.
