About My Clients
Are you struggling to feel secure in your relationships? At times even in your own body? Growth is seeded first in a safe and comfortable setting. You will find space with a firm foundation to be messy, make mistakes, and cultivate hope in my office. I serve clients who are in transitional periods: relationship enrichment, perinatal mental health, and individual women’s issues. Anxiety, depression, and stress often plague these seasons. I hope you allow me to walk through these times with you.
My Background and Approach
The pillar of my style is a wholeness approach to mental, spiritual, physical, and relational health. Training in Marriage & Family Therapy allows me to see the whole person, with past and present experiences, to develop the change desired. I believe in the power of vulnerability, and I am honored to go there with you. I value an integrated approach to therapy primarily based in Systems Theory, Attachment Theory, and Emotionally Focused Therapy. The integration of these treatment theories understands each client is a whole with thoughts, feelings, and relationships. That’s where we begin. I utilize various tools from other orientations, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, PlayTherapy, and Experiential Theory. Specialized experience & studied interest areas: foster care/adoption, Gottman Lv. 1 Couples Therapies, Prepare/Enrich couples assessment, complex-trauma, peri/postpartum mood disorders
My Personal Beliefs and Interests
I love to laugh and celebrate joy inside and outside of the office. One of my favorite ways to do that is through adventure: traveling, seeking new experiences, and sharing with loved ones. These feelings of awe, openness, and play are restricted under constructs like societal pressure, privilege, family dynamics, gender roles, trauma, the list goes on. It is deeply meaningful to me that each person feel the opportunity to take up space, explore, and be known, however that may look for you. I often find myself advocating loudly for those who cannot advocate for themselves. Specifically my experience within the foster care system and the underserved, under researched suffering from perinatal mood disorders drives my fight against unjust systems of power.
