About My Clients
Life is a journey and there are unexpected roadblocks & detours that take us out of our way- impacting how we feel about ourselves & our relationships. I provide Individual Therapy & Couples Therapy - specializing in relationship issues, anxiety, depression, self-esteem, trauma & life transitions. Practicing a Strengths based approach, I believe that you hold capacities & inherit wisdom about your life. I will support you in slowing down, being Mindful & noticing self-critical, intrusive voices.
My Background and Approach
My Couples work is informed by my training in The Developmental Model which integrates Attachment Theory, Differentiation and Neuroscience. I will help you to discover how to approach difficult challenges and topics and respond to each other in new ways that foster deeper understanding and connection. I use EMDR & somatic approaches to release trapped emotions.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am a licensed therapist with a Masters of Science in Counseling Psychology. But that is only one aspect of what I bring to my work. I also bring my life experience as the mother of three grown children, as the daughter of aging parents, as an artist who believes that creative expression opens our minds and hearts, and as a citizen of the world, who spent decades living in another culture outside the United States. All my life experience only enhances what I do in my work as a therapist, helping me better understand individual challenges, big life decisions and daunting change.
