I offer individual therapy to adults wanting to heal unresolved childhood trauma, addiction/recovery, codependence, Childhood Emotional Neglect, and grief/loss.
It is incredibly rewarding to help people discover how to create and sustain authentic healthy connections they are seeking, both the relationship you have with your inner self as well as in relationship with others. I love to accompany people on their journey of personal growth with the hope that in the process they can have the kind of healthy, enjoyable, meaningful relationships they treasure most.
I provide a warm and welcoming space in which to explore the challenges you are having. We will work collaboratively as you talk about the difficulty you are having as well as what you would like to gain from therapy. You will also have the opportunity to process thoughts and emotions as they come up as well as develop (or hone) both your strengths as well as your inner resources with my assistance. Part of therapy also entails venturing outside your comfort zone by learning new skills and being open to therapeutic suggestions that can complement the therapy process, such as book recommendations or things to try outside of session. The underlying goal in my work with all clients is to guide you to a place of healing that includes self-compassion, self-awareness, and self-care. Finding a good fit with a therapist is essential to great therapy. Research shows (and I also firmly believe) the therapeutic relationship is one of the most powerful factors for successful outcomes in therapy. With that said, I tend to utilize a combination of the following frameworks in our work together: * Family systems * Attachment theory * Existential (focuses on concepts that are universally applicable to human existence including death, freedom, responsibility, and the meaning of life) * Narrative * Humanistic and person centered * Motivational interviewing * CBT
