About My Clients
Transition, loss, and the experience of grief will affect every person through various moment in life. At times, these changes and losses are unexpected and sometimes unwanted events can throw us off track or render us feeling hopeless. I have a keen interest in how people construct meaning in their lives, especially during moments of loss and transition. I enjoy working with people seeking ways to adapt, thrive, and make meaning in the midst of loss and transition and explore grief.
My Background and Approach
I practice psychotherapy from a relational psychodynamic perspective which means fostering a meaningful and safe relationship to uncover, explore, and identify internal strength, and stability. Also, I hope to increase awareness of how lifelong patterns help or hinder how we function in relationships and how to navigate the the changing world. I admire and use practices from many therapeutic traditions. I rely on my knowledge in existentialist and humanistic approaches, the humor and practicality of solution focused methods, and the heart-centered practices of mindfulness, and modern brain science which provides an invaluable perspective. I strive to create an environment in which my clients can safely explore beyond the personal and social boundaries of what is “possible,” “permissible,” “accepted,” and “normal.”My primary goal in the therapeutic process is to actively assist you in reaching a better understanding of the underlying conflicts.
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I am sex positive, LGBTQ+ aware and multiculturally competent. I do not underestimate the impact of socio-cultural and political movements on the individual and the interplay between them and one’s inner life and relationships. Your confidentiality is the utmost of importance. Creating a safe space to be genuine and authentic in your experience will be my priority. I believe without a safe space healing will be halted. We will work together to create emotional safety for you.
