My Approach to Helping
I specialize in working with children, adolescents, parents and young adults, to address the wide range of psychological issues that can impact individuals personally or arise within families. I work from a relational, attachment oriented framework with the belief that emotional health is directly linked to fulfilling and satisfying relationships with others.
By facilitating a deep therapeutic process that explores the complexity of the relational world of the child or the adult, I strive to enter this world and help create change within it. At the core of this process is the ability of the therapist make genuine contact with the individuals who have entrusted them with their care. Helping others feel truly seen, heard and validated despite their circumstances is a vital aspect of any therapy and one that I work diligently to honor and maintain in my work.
In my work I take a holistic approach to treatment with an understanding of the importance of treating the totality of the individual being served. For example, while working with children and their families, I will often assess for and treat a variety of contributing factors including, strained parent-child dynamics, sleep problems, issues with proper diet and nutrition, potential problems within the home and school environment and so on in an effort to provide thorough and comprehensive treatment.
