About My Clients

Throughout the course of our lives, we often develop coping styles and learned behaviors in order to survive. Over time, what was once a way of resiliency and protection ends up preventing us from our own healing and growth. We end up feeling powerless and judgmental of ourselves, wondering why we can’t get unstuck from old patterns or fully enjoy our lives. In therapy, we can begin to uncover what is holding us back through awareness and emotional processing of our experiences.

My Background and Approach

Sometimes the parts of us that are open, curious and authentic can feel stifled or closed off by life stressors and pain. As a result, we develop thoughts, behaviors and emotional patterns that cause us to resist or avoid our true self, thereby preventing us from moving through the world with harmony and ease. I believe in a collaborative, relational approach, consisting of an integration of Family Systems, Attachment Theory, Relational Gestalt and Feminist Theory, which strives to achieve an equitable and non-hierarchal relationship between therapist and client. Factors such as unconditional positive regard, non-judgment, compassion, sense of humor, and empathy are also foundational to the core of the therapeutic process. My goal is to provide a safe, brave space for you to explore and expand on the many feelings and experiences that arise. Throughout this process, we will move away from feelings of limitation, towards an experience of freedom and authenticity.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that therapy is a compassionate exchange within yourself and with others that allows one to fully experience the richness of life. I value this exchange between therapist and client because it allows us to fully expand and explore on the complexities that life brings. This helps to alleviate negative symptoms that are holding us back. As a therapist, I consider myself a facilitator of your healing and growth, giving you space to be curious, to question without judgment, to light up and expand on the path you choose. I will help you make connections and provide insights, incorporating mindfulness and somatic exercises, and working from a strengths based approach in order for you to fully embrace your unique strengths and authenticity. I take a collaborative, active role, sharing my observations in order to be of service to you and our process. As a result, I have seen clients make major shifts and changes in their lives, in their relationships, and in the way they feel.
