My Approach to Helping
I am a group and individual psychotherapist specializing in childhood dysfunctional family trauma. Clients who are interested in this work usually have had prior experience with therapy and are seeking to resolve long standing stuck places.
I am taking new clients but fyi, I DO NOT take insurance.
I work from a very specific and effective model regarding my client's childhood that promotes deep and lastly change and healing. The work is experientially based and interested clients need to be aware that the work it is very emotive. By that, I mean that we do not just talk or intellectualize but rather our goal is deep emotional shifts.
My clients experience significant lasting changes in negative core beliefs, are able to reclaim intimacy, profoundly heal their relationship with themselves, gain a sense of movement and recovery, and reclaim a lost sense of joy.
The model that I use is based upon inner child work where my clients learn what is healthy v. unhealthy family systems and begin the process of "re parenting" themselves. Learning about this concept is an amazing journey.
My model is done within a group setting with peers and we start together in individual and move towards group. Our first group is our families and we bring those beliefs and experiences into all of our relationships. The first step is becoming aware of how our first 18 years of life can still run our present lives.
