Associate Marriage and Family Therapist -
We are living in strange times. COVID-19 has made social distancing a new normal that changes so much about the way we live. However, though keeping distance is a present necessity, our need for connection remains the same. I am still accepting new clients and offering video/phone therapy for all seeking support during these times of uncertainty.
Humans are pack animals. We depend on our relationships to survive. So, when we are deprived of the love and care of supportive relationships, we find ways to meet these needs in their absence. These strategies help us minimize our pain allowing us to survive childhood and navigate adulthood.
Now you are finding that these survival strategies are becoming problems of their own. Do you struggle with letting your guard down, even for the people you love? Is it difficult to put your needs over the needs of others? Have you developed habits of avoiding “feeling” and find that you are disconnected from the world around you?
Therapy offers a unique relationship that invites you to explore your patterns and practice new ways of relating to others. I offer warmth, curiosity, and openness as together we seek out your ideal YOU and explore how to let this person shine through in all your relationships.
