The people I work with typically are looking to understand their internal state more accurately to be able to communicate more effectively with others. We focus on attachments, the development of thoughts and feelings, along with the processes that are associated with them. We work together towards a shared understandings through various techniques, modalities, and exploration.
My Background and Approach
I focus on the needs of the individual to support their internal/external relational system in a healthy and clear manner to reach overarching goals. I believe everyone has the capacity to better themselves if they're willing. I have helped those overcome substance abuse issues, explore individual identity (LGBTQ), cope with psychological/cognitive/developmental disorders, accept medical diagnoses, overcome sexual abuse/intimate partner violence, and a variety of maladaptive behaviors. I utilize an eclectic approach to therapy to ensure that you are receiving the best of all modalities I am versed in. I am trained Mentalization-Based Treatment for Adults, Adolescents, and children. I am also trained in Adaptive Mentalization-Based Integrative Treatment for system and hard to reach clients.
