"Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it." - Helen Keller
I am encouraged by the resilience of the human spirit. We have an incredible ability to heal and to turn difficulty into wisdom, strength and compassion. Within a secure therapeutic relationship that's built on trust and empathy, the power of telling one’s story is transformative and can provide the fuel for making courageous life changes.
I work with a range of issues, including depression, grief, anxiety, attachment and relationship struggles, and practice an integrative approach that melds several cutting edge therapies. The therapy models I work with are supported by research from affective neuroscience, attachment theory, and somatic therapy, which all demonstrate that we are hard wired for connection and change. My work with individuals is based on Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (AEDP), Internal Family Systems (IFS), Mindfulness practice, and Eye Motion Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR).
This integrative approach supports healthy development and individuation - strengthening your sense of self, your capacity to communicate effectively, and your willingness to live a life of meaning and heart. In my work I offer warmth, authenticity, forgiveness and repair.
