My Approach to Helping

Consider the messages you learned from your family growing up, and how those life lessons found their way into the way you view the world. How do they inform the way you see yourself in the world? What is their impact on how you connect to others in relationships?

Together we can uncover deeply held beliefs about others and the world that may be causing you to repeat unhelpful patterns of behavior. Repeating these patterns can cause us to feel a myriad of negative feelings- confusion, frustration and loneliness. I aim to create a warm, empathic and caring relationship that allows you to feel heard and understood, which is vital for personal transformation and growth. I use a “here and now” approach to bring your issues to life by gently and respectfully making observations about how they appear in the therapy room. Aside from Schema therapy, I am training in Internal Family Systems (IFS)- "parts" work, Creative Arts therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapies, cognitive behavioral strategies, family systems theory and emotionally focused couples therapy (EFT). It takes tremendous courage to begin this journey of discovery, and I am right beside you along the way. I offer in person and telehealth sessions.
