Associate Marriage and Family Therapist -
I believe the self is the most powerful tool for growth, and in our relationship together I use myself as a lens. I work holistically to deepen into awareness of relationships and patterns to bring consciousness to old wounds and with healing and integration. Anxiety and depression may say something useful about certain needs in your life, or your life’s meaning.
I take a strong approach in trauma informed work, and how our relationship to intimacy, vulnerability, and conflict is related to patterns of attachment. It may be hard to self-regulate, or be in the body. If we haven’t felt contained it is often hard to know what we are feeling or experiencing, or start to dissociate. You may have found my page because you feel lost, confused, or are not quite sure what you feel. I use tools to help you be closer to your experience and ground.
The therapy space is a microcosm of the rest of life, which is ever changing. I work to be present with you so we can relate to what is happening right here, right now. My work is to get to know not just you, but all parts of you. Not just who you are, but what you hold. What matters to me the most is your well being.
