About My Clients
Struggling with symptoms of anxiety, depression, trauma, addiction, or however your distress manifests makes us feel trapped, in cycles of outbursts or avoidance, and coping in ways that are not sustainable. We blame ourselves bringing us further from feeling connected and closer to feeling ashamed. Typically what we see on the surface is mistaken for ourself and is our way to cope with the issues that lie underneath. Therapy is here to help you dive into yourself to move through these issues.
My Background and Approach
My background is in treating anxiety, depression, addiction, disordered eating, previous traumas, relationship issues, attachment issues, and post concussion syndrome. My varied experience has helped me to integrate an approach of psychodynamic theories, attachment work, polyvagal theory, EMDR, and mindfulness based psychotherapy to help you to work through presenting issues. We only go to the past to see how it invades the present and utilize mindfulness based principles and skills to allow ourselves to grow different patterns of response for a better future. Feeling and processing our emotions in a safe relationship is a hallmark of therapy that I'm skilled in. My specialty is giving my clients the tools they need to empower themselves outside of the therapuetic relationship and to integrate evidence based practices into daily life.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I have strong beliefs in always growing in my craft and integrating those changes into the therapuetic process. I believe that I always must be doing the work that I'm helping others with to be fully present in front of them. Therapy truly is about closling the gap between knowing how we should feel to actually experiencing that for ourselves. Experiencing new or difficult emotions in session and integrating those experiences outside of session will always facilitate positive therapuetic results. I strive to be in the trenches with my clients and everything that I do is geared towards getting you to the results that you need. I encourage you to reach out here to contact me for a free consultation or to get going in treatment immediately. I do my best to provide a streamlined experience in onboarding.
