The Therapist

Having a professional that understands you, and works with you to develop the type of care you need is deeply important.

Finding, and choosing a therapist is such a deeply personal progress. Someone who understands your values, who knows how to balance offering insight and challenge with compassion, these are all determined on such individual levels.

The therapy that I seek to provide is guided by the principles of somatic and attachment-oriented psychotherapy, as well as depth psychotherapy. What this means in plain english is that rather than focus just on how life presently presents itself, I work with clients to go deeply into their already developed, and sensitive inner worlds to engage in the process of memory reconsolidation and healing.  

I explore with them their inner worlds, making meaning and help them to understand their unique interpersonal neurobiology. I also seek to understand your unique needs and desires, and believe that therapy can contain a ton of bullshit and traps, that I do my best to not fall into.

I also believe that being embodied, working to regulate our nervous systems, and exploring the depths of ourselves, enables us to find new placement in the world, new understanding of our relationship patterns, and a sense of being that feels integrated, that accepts our shadow and our parts of self for all they are.
