I approach my work through the lens of an integrative and holistic therapist. Our work begins with building a collaborative relationship to instill trust, compassion, and safety.
My background is grounded in Psychodynamic and Interpersonal perspectives paired with Self-Compassion. These perspectives help guide treatment as a way of understanding how your past impacts your present and create new ways of being in your world. Although I work with multiple presenting concerns, I have discovered a common obstacle among clients is how they relate with themselves (i.e. severe self-criticism) and subsequently relate with the world (i.e. relational patterns that create distress). This process then manifests into or intensifies symptoms (i.e. depression, anxiety, recurring trauma, low self-worth, and/or relationship issues, to name a few). Interpersonal work allows an individual to explore their sense of self, build awareness, and add language to their past experiences that create obstacles in their present. This process can be uncomfortable at times, but ultimately, can lead to a profound sense of relief and personal growth.
