About My Clients
Do you worry a lot? Does anxiety make you restless or cause troubles with concentration, irritability, or restlessness? Maybe you even pull your hair, pick at yourself, or engage in compulsive behaviors to self-soothe. It's easy to become overwhelmed, especially for those who are dealing with depression, relationship problems, and the aftermath of trauma. Psychotherapy can help tremendously. I'm here for you and ready to journey through the challenges with you.
My Background and Approach
My approach to therapy is flexible and integrates psychodynamic theories with cognitive behavioral skills. I have extensive post-graduate training in psychoanalysis and trauma-informed practice. I prioritize creating a safe space for you to express yourself and confide your thoughts and feelings. I will listen to you, support you, and point out patterns I notice to help you enhance self-awareness. Through the therapy process, you will gain insight about the heart of your anxieties and troubles and learn the tools to respond mindfully.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I believe there is too much pain and suffering in the world, and that shame and anxiety can hold us in that dark, painful place. My work as a therapist has connected me to so many great people I would not have otherwise had the chance to know and taught me that resilience has no limits. I am always grateful to my brave clients who reached out when they were struggling and shared with me their time, stories, and art. Your strengths transcend theories and words. I've always been a pretty anxious person, and after some traumatic experiences I began my own therapy journey. I'm able to deal with distress from an empowered prospective now, at least most of the time :) I know first hand how vulnerable it feels to be a patient in therapy, and I do not take trust for granted. I'm a vegan passionate about environmentalism and animal rights. Anyone else an animal lover?
