Parenting is difficult for everyone, especially with many of us far from support and guidance. I can help guide you and help you find who you want to be as a parent. I also find that being a parent can bring up a lot of feelings about our own childhood. I can help contain these feelings and use these to help you parent better.
A lot of people have difficulties in relationships of all kinds. We sometimes experience challenges with friends, partners, colleagues, our children, and anyone else we encounter. Understanding our attachment and how we relate to others can help us create more engaged, enjoyable, and lasting relationships.
LGBTQ+ clients bring unique experiences to therapy. From exploring gender and sexuality to having difficult experiences with family to navigating a world that is less than friendly, each client has a chance to tell their own story. I have significant experience working with the community both in private practice, as well as at community centers like Callen-Lorde and Ali Forney.
Relational psychotherapy, an approach that can help individuals recognize the role relationships play in the shaping of daily experiences, attempts to help people understand patterns appearing in the thoughts and feelings they have toward themselves. Based on the idea that strong and fulfilling relationships with other individuals can help people maintain emotional well-being, this model may be beneficial to people seeking therapy for any number of reasons.
Psychodynamic therapy is a talking therapy. This means that it is based on the concept that talking about problems can help people learn and develop the skills they need to address them. It is an approach that embraces the multifaceted aspects of an individual’s life. It strives to help people understand the sometimes unknown or unconscious motivations behind difficult feelings and behaviors. Having this insight can lead to symptom relief, help people feel better, and allow them to make better
Attachment therapy is based on attachment theory and explores how one’s childhood experiences might impact their ability to form meaningful bonds as adults. Though attachment therapy is often recommended for those who had negative childhood experiences, anyone struggling to foster deep connections with others might benefit therapy.
