"How bold one gets when one is sure of being loved."
- Sigmund Freud
As a therapist, I am empathic, curious, and straightforward. Because I believe healing most powerfully occurs within the relational realm, I will be active and collaborative with you as we carefully forge a connection with one another. In my experience, change accompanies a willingness to work with the past as it plays out with those in our lives- particularly as it relates to the relationship between therapist and client.
You may be entering therapy for a variety of reasons. You may have come to desire change, yearn for healing, or long for relief from pain. It is my belief that therapy can be a catalyst for change and healing at any phase; whether you are seeking short term consultation or long-term care, my desire is to create a space that can hold whatever you may bring.
My areas of focus include:
- Abandonment and neglect
- Sexual trauma and abuse
- Anxiety and depression
- Considerations of gender and race
- Self-aggression and forms of self-harm
- Pregnancy loss: miscarriage, termination, stillbirth
- Religion and spiritual identity
My theoretical orientation is informed by psychodynamic psychotherapy, object relations, family systems, and emotion focused therapy. If you have questions about any of these theories, please don’t hesitate to ask.
Case Management Services
In addition to my private practice, I work as a contracted clinical case manager for individuals who would benefit from comprehensive, wrap-around care. This form of therapeutic work is customized to meet the complex medical, psychological, and social needs of those who have struggled to find higher levels of support and are seeking an alternative to residential treatment.
