About My Clients
I provide therapy for adults who are looking to explore their ways of thinking, behaving, feeling, and relating. I specialize in mood disorders like anxiety and depression, relationship challenges, codependency, chronic pain, chronic fatigue, autoimmune issues, and the effects of being raised by or in a partnership with someone with a personality disorder.
My Background and Approach
My approach combines an understanding of the importance of early relationships and advanced training in a somatic practice called Somatic Experiencing. Thus, my work with clients is based on the value of relationships and building capacity and resiliency in the nervous system. My first priority as a clinician is to help clients feel safe so they can do the work that leads to meaningful, long-term change. It is not my goal to change my clients; My hope is to help them shift their relationships with themselves in order to feel less shame, more power, and have more meaningful connections with others. It is my job to “hold the space,” so my clients can explore who they are, how they feel, and what they need.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
It can be difficult and confusing knowing which therapist is a good fit for you. It is also the most important part of the process, as I believe the quality of the client-therapist relationship is most indicative of whether a client will progress towards his or her personal goals. I offer a free 20 minute consult to see if we are a good fit.
