Using a present-centered and body-aware approach, I aid clients in restructuring core beliefs. In this way, getting “unstuck” is not limited to talk and intellectual analysis, but rather becomes a journey that unfolds through your direct and felt experience in the here and now.
I have specific training in Gestalt Therapy, Sensorimotor Psychotherapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy (EFT), The Enneagram, and mindfulness-based approaches. Specialties include helping clients move from anxiety to trust, from depression/isolation to connection, and from self-destructive behavior towards self-esteem and self-actualization.
I believe in my clients’ innate inner wisdom, and challenge them to take ownership over their process. My style is compassionate, curious, and honest. My work is influenced by a strong theoretical understanding of attachment, trauma, and neuroplasticity. I hold the highest regard for the relationships (be they friends, partners, coworkers, or family) that are significant in your life. Our work is not a replacement for meaningful connections outside of therapy but rather a bond that travels alongside them, and allows you to move away from old patterns and dynamics into deeper and fuller ways of connecting and finding nourishment.
I create a space for you to develop yourself – body, mind, and spirit. Potential areas for change include:
- Worry, anxiety, or fear
- Depression and feelings of isolation
- Indecision/Lack of Direction
- Self-destructive behavior
- Anger/aggression (towards self and other)
- Grief and Loss
- Shut down or cut off from you feelings
- ‘Self medication’ with food, alcohol, or other substances
- Coping Skills
- Low Self Esteem/Shame
- Relationship Issues
- Peer and Work Relationships
- Family-of-origin Issues
- Spiritual Growth
- Emotional Disturbance
Diversity Statement: Being committed to serving diverse people, reflective of our diverse community, is fundamental to sound therapeutic relationships. Every client, no matter their race, gender, sexual preference, age, religious affiliation or nationality, is respected and celebrated.
