“The willingness to show up changes us, It makes us a little braver each time.”

― Brené Brown

Approach to Therapy

In my psychotherapy practice, I support adults (18+) experiencing a range of issues in their healing journey. My approach to therapy is relational, informed by psychodynamic and attachment theory. In my work with you, I focus on developing a meaningful connection with you to guide the therapeutic journey. We will pay attention to your present and immediate concerns. As I learn more about you, I will invite you to explore your past experiences, relationship patterns, behaviors, and attachment patterns. Our personal histories, learned ways of being, and unhealed emotional wounds often impact our present-day issues. Developing a deeper understanding of your past can promote a healthier relationship with not only your present self but your future self too.


The therapy process will include increasing awareness as to how your thoughts, emotions, behaviors, and physical sensations are connected. Together, we will examine not only your needs, wishes, and hopes but also your fears, pain, and anxieties. We will gently unearth the roots of what is causing you pain and disconnection from yourself and others. Committing to therapy with intention, courage, and belief in your inner healing wisdom is a catalyst for powerful change. 


With the personal growth that therapy brings you, also come difficult moments. For instance, connecting our past to our present can bring forward painful emotions, a sense of grief, and sadness. As your therapist, I will provide safe containment to hold you through these periods of growth. My collaboration with you is built on trust, empathy, compassion, and respect. It is a big step to begin the therapeutic path of deep discovery, and I admire your bravery. One of the greatest honors I have as a therapist is to witness your journey. 


“Most people are afraid of suffering. But suffering is a kind of mud to help the lotus flower of happiness grow. There can be no lotus flower without the mud.”


Evidence-Based Treatments

In addition to relational psychodynamic therapy, I use an integrated approach to bring in skills and ideas from various evidence based treatments that I have received formal training in. Learning new tools can aid in developing ego strength and internal insights.
