I believe in the transformative power of the therapeutic relationship to create a safe and fertile place for all aspects of the self to be witnessed, explored, and integrated in the service of growth. I understand psychic pain as a message from the parts of the self that are calling for attention and healing. I work with my clients to attend to those parts so that they can experience the full range of their true self.
My clinical training covers both psychodynamic work and evidence based practices including CBT, DBT, and prolonged exposure. I have experience working with a range of issues including trauma, domestic violence, emotion dysregulation disorders including borderline personality disorder, anxiety, and depression. I have worked with diverse populations and in diverse settings such as community mental health and re-entry after incarceration.
