My Approach

I invite you to explore your experiences and relationships and discover a new path to leading a fulfilling life. There is a healing quality to establishing a positive relationship with ones self as well as others. I believe at the core of healing, mental health wellbeing, and authentic happiness  lies the human need for connection and safety.

 

I aspire to share this with clients through empathy, curiosity, acceptance and trust. My goal is to ensure that you feel safe and secure throughout the therapeutic process so you feel open to explore your innermost self. I will be there for you and with you as you navigate this path.  

I base my work on approaches that are grounded in research such as attachment theory and the neuroscience of human connections and mental health.

I practice:

Emotion Focused Therapy (EFT)

Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)

Circle of Security (COS-P)

 

I also integrate Expressive Arts Therapy into sessions primarily when working with children and adolescents. I do so when this approach fits and is therapeutic for the client.

My  story matters

because I matter.

I am absolutely enough.
