About My Clients

My clients are motivated to work on their material outside of sessions, willing to be honest with me and themselves, and are open to understanding how cultural forces play into their individual struggles. They are willing to try on more optimal thought patterns pointed toward emotional regulation and integration. That said, this space is for you and client driven: I am non-judgmental and am excited to learn about what works for you, who you are, and where you want to go.

My Background and Approach

I have been working in the human services field for over 30 years, including some time in the hospice field. As an attachment theorist, my work fundamentally points to the fact that our relationships matter, and they matter from the very beginning. How we regulate ourselves as individuals is first learned (or not learned so well) from our primary caregivers and our need for co-regulation never really stops. In treatment, my clients learn how to co-regulate and we talk about the difference between *reacting* to a situation rather than *responding* to adverse experiences in life. We identify methods of resiliency and resources to move toward more optimal patterns that serve well-being and happiness. I have studied Interpersonal Neurobiology extensively, have training in the Gottman Method and frequently use Internal Family System (IFS) techniques in treatment: IFS is a non pathologizing approach: all parts are welcome to the table toward integration and wellness.

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

I believe that we need to wake up and realize that we only have one planet and we need to figure out how to talk to each other and get along. We also need to deal with the horizontal hostility that feeds the rich and disadvantages the marginalized, poor, disabled, people of color, LGBTQ, and others. This disparity of who "wins" in the this culture and who loses is actually hurting everyone, including the "winners." I am a regular volunteer with NAACP and am active in the National Association of Social Workers, especially through my work on the Legislative Committee. I think macro forces (sexism, classism, prejudice and discrimination against people of color (i.e., White Supremacy) are forces that absolutely need to be reckoned with in order to fully heal.
