In my role as therapist, I provide a warm, non-judgmental and supportive environment for healing. My clinical approach is humanistic, psychodynamic, client centered, holistic, and relational. Authenticity and transparency are also very important to me in the therapeutic relationship. I see my clients as experts of their own lives, and find a collaborative approach to the work essential for lasting healing.
In my work with individuals I utilize interventions from Mindfulness Based Cognitive Therapy, and Somatic Experiencing, with a deep understanding of trauma, family systems and attachment theories.
I believe our earliest relationships with our families and primary caregivers have great influence on the way we experience the relationship with ourselves or others today. By gaining insight to our past, combined with tools to help work with the natural responses of the mind and body, we can create more choice in our present and future.
