Mental Health Counselor in Greenlawn, NY

Relationships, marriage, and families take work. They can bring us joy and pleasure, but also cause us stress and take our energy. Through coursework and certifications, I have learned to identify patterns and dynamics in your relationships, and can use these to help support you and gain control of these meaningful bonds.
Attachment is our connection to others. We are taught by our parents or caregivers how to relate to others, view the world, and view ourselves. I believe that our attachment relationships strongly shape who we are, including who we become as adults in our own potential to have romantic relationships. I have studied attachment dynamics and styles through various graduate coursework and certifications.
We carry the burdens of our family - both past and present. It creates stress, anxiety, depression, insecurity, anger and more. Growing up in adverse conditions or with significant stressors can both cause continued hardships, but also make us resilient. I have experience with Internal Family Systems therapy and Emotion Focused Individual Therapy, and teach classes on ways to gain insight on our past burdens as well as release them.
