My Approach to Helping
** CURRENTLY OFFERING TELEHEALTH** If after our first session, you don't feel a connection with me the session is FREE. I have a gentle demeanor that is curious, respectful and seasoned with kind nudging. I want you to feel deeply cared for, respected and valued. For most of my clients, I focus on attachment, how the bond to significant figures has shaped the beliefs about the self, others and the world. Often times issues related to trust, perfectionism, poor self-worth and anger, are deeply connected to early attachment bond. Making these connections will make you feel empowered to think, feel and engage with others differently.
Many people carry the wounds of early attachments and have come to experience depression, anxiety, shame and insecurity precisely as a result of unhealed trauma and complicated grief. I'm interested to know about your relationship with significant others, parents, spouse, partner, children and friends. How you view those in your inner circle and your belief about how they view you has generally been a great starting point.
If you are entering therapy as a result of a specific problem and believe that the way you are thinking and feeling about the problem is keeping you stuck, I offer Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. CBT helps you to question your beliefs and attitude about the problem, learn to challenge negative ways of thinking and learn specific skills to shift your thoughts towards a direction that promotes courage, kindness and balance.
