As a therapist, my aim is to provide a safe, warm, and supportive environment for you to examine and recover from any stress, grief, or trauma in your life. I work from a trauma informed lens, acknowledging that life experiences shape who we are and the way we experience the world. I focus on harm reduction, aiming to increase safety, and help build coping skills that can replace patterns that no longer serve you. Exploring why we do things, and what we might be able to do instead, is often easier with company, and I would be honored to join you on your journey.
I often work from an emotionally focused lens and offer a DBT (dialectical behavioral therapy) informed approach with individuals, focusing on building distress tolerance, so we have the tools and foundation to work through the difficult parts of life. With couples I work with the Gottman model of therapy aiming to increase the base friendship and connection in a couple, to help come to a place where conflict can be managed from a loving, respectful, and healthy approach. I work both virtually and in person with individuals, including teens, young adults, and adults, as well as with couples.
I would love to get to know you, and join you as you seek to process, heal, and perhaps change some aspects of your life. I come from a place of non-judgement, and want nothing more than to meet you where you’re at today. Please don’t hesitate to reach out; we can connect and see if we might make a good team for the work you want to explore.
