I have been providing individual, family, and couples therapy in community and private practice settings for the past 15 years. My primary focus is helping individuals overcome life’s obstacles, including child and adult trauma, relationship problems, loss of a loved one, and other impactful events or situations that alter one’s sense of security.
Life brings many challenges, many of which we are not equipped for or prepared to navigate. Whether it is an unexpected life change, a frightening or harmful event, or a series of hardships, these kinds of challenges often impact our view of ourselves, others, and the world in general. In addition, when we struggle to cope with life and feel unsuccessful, we can develop symptoms of anxiety and depression that may affect our relationships, family or work life, or overall functioning.
My goal in therapy is to help clients learn to face challenges head on so they feel equipped to deal with life in the moment. Through the use of therapeutic interventions focused on treating trauma and attachment-related difficulties, I assist clients in developing the ability to cope with stressors, improving emotional regulation, and healing unresolved pain from the past. I have been trained in the use of EMDR (Eye Movement and Desensitization Reprocessing) and DDP (Dyadic Developmental Psychotherapy), and my therapeutic approach is to meet all individuals, wherever they are in life, using attunement, empathy, and acceptance.
