About My Clients
My work as a psychotherapist has been all inclusive, as I have supported very young children, pre-teens, teens, adults, and have worked with elders coping with issues of aging. I have worked with people from many diverse cultural, ethnic, familial, and socio-economic backgrounds and am dedicated to supporting each person’s individual experiences within the complex, diverse world in which we live.
My Background and Approach
My approach consists of assisting people in identifying and exploring the stressors, issues, or losses that are causing pain, in order to begin to address them. I have a warm, direct communication style and will support you in developing a practice of self-care and self-reflection, while also implementing practical solutions, and coping skills. Building a healthy curiosity about your behavior, thoughts, and feelings will be encouraged in order to achieve a better understanding of the conscious and unconscious influences that perpetuate difficulties and conflicts. Deepening a self-understanding strengthens an ability to build healthier, more satisfying relationships with others and with yourself. I have extensive experience working with grief and loss, depression, anxiety, mental illness, trauma, relationship and parenting issues, and chronic pain. My degree is in Clinical Psychology with a concentration in Somatic Studies, mind/body psychotherapy. I also focus on young adult concerns.
