My approach consists of assisting people in identifying and exploring the stressors, issues, or losses that are causing pain, in order to begin to address them. I have a warm, direct communication style and will support you in developing a practice of self-care and self-reflection, while also implementing practical solutions, and coping skills. Building a healthy curiosity about your behavior, thoughts, and feelings will be encouraged in order to achieve a better understanding of the conscious and unconscious influences that perpetuate difficulties and conflicts. Deepening a self-understanding strengthens an ability to build healthier, more satisfying relationships with others and with yourself.
I have extensive experience working with grief and loss, depression, anxiety, mental illness, trauma, relationship and parenting issues, and chronic pain. My degree is in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Somatic Studies, mind/body psychotherapy. I also focus on young adult concerns.
