About My Clients
**Only accepting Couples to Waitlist at this time**Are you looking for a therapist who understands what you are going through? Someone, to help you repair, heal, and grow in your relationship? Are you seeking someone to help you navigate these challenges with more confidence and resilience? Reaching out for help when we are struggling is really difficult. Maybe you have been trying to manage it on your own for a while, but things just don’t seem to be changing and you are feeling stuck.
My Background and Approach
I specialize in supporting adults and couples to heal relationships on all levels. Including relationships with stress, illness, neurodivergence, and trauma. Combining research-informed practices with revolutionary brain + relationship science, I work from an integrative “head + heart” approach that incorporates mind, body, and spirit to help you increase resilience, release emotional baggage, and ignite holistic healing. Hence, Head + Heart Integrative Psychotherapy. For I believe that only by working from a holistic perspective can we truly experience deep healing and lasting change. My practice of psychotherapy is research and trauma-informed and integrates Relationship Science (Attachment Theory, Gottman Couples Therapy, Emotionally Focused Couples Therapy, and Relational Life Therapy), Interpersonal Neurobiology, Systems Theory, Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), Mindfulness, Somatic therapy, EMDR therapy, depth psychology and parts work, and trauma-informed interventions.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
They say in school you learn a lesson to pass a test, and in life, you are given a test to learn a lesson. Well, I certainly have been given a lot of tests and learned a lot of lessons over my life. And one thing I know for sure is that change and healing are possible. It happened for me, and it’s possible for you too. I believe that we all have an innate ability to help ourselves heal and to heal our relationships. But sometimes life gets really difficult, and we need some support to strengthen that self-healing muscle. And building muscles takes practice and exercise. I consider the therapeutic space to be a mental gym, art studio, laboratory, and playground combined - basically, it's a place to explore and discover yourself and your relationship in deeper ways. In order to help clients integrate this deeper awareness, I will occasionally assign my clients “homework” to generalize their experience in therapy to their daily lives – where the real change and muscle growth happens!
