About My Clients
I work with both individuals and couples including but not limited to adults, young adults, teens, and adolescents. With specialized training and experience in working with trauma and those who have endured sexual assault/abuse, I additionally specialize in anxiety, relationship distress, and highly sensitive people.
My Background and Approach
Perhaps you seek a “coming home” to yourself in a safe and meaningful way. Perhaps you long to make meaning of wounding or painful experiences. Or perhaps, you wish to understand yourself in the context of relationships and the world around you. Whatever your reasons for seeking therapy at this time, I honor your courage to do so. Just as each person’s experiences are inherently unique to each individual, I tailor therapy to meet each person where they are individually at. Valuing training in relational and contemporary psychoanalysis, I work in a manner that is informed by trauma-sensitive, emotionally-focused, relational, and somatic approaches where there is a context for your pain and a safe presence in your healing. I believe that the therapeutic process should not be a “one size fits all” approach but rather, a crafted collaboration between patient and therapist to create sincere connection, meaningful dialogue, and exploration of your experiences in profound ways.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
In the Japanese art of Kintsugi, pottery that has been broken is not simply discarded, but rather, mended with gold. This process known as “golden repair” reflects the idea that although seemingly broken, the process of healing and mending results in resilient and beautiful pieces of pottery. I believe that as humans, we are also incredibly resilient - able to bear unbearable pain and hurt. However, I also believe that our pain is not meant to be held alone; as we need a present and safe other to help us hold, bear, and contextualize these wounding experiences. Thus, it is an honor to walk alongside you as we metaphorically weave gold within the cracks that have left you feeling broken or un-whole; cultivating expansiveness and fostering healing.
