Who I Work with
I offer psychotherapy to individual adults and adolescents, along with couples and other relationship configurations.
I work collaboratively with you on whatever you feel is important. This may include (and is not limited to):
Depression | Anxiety
PTSD | Trauma | Childhood, Adult, Intergenerational
Life transitions | Grief and loss, Relationship change, Career change, Relocation
Identity exploration | Individuation, Cultural identity, Exploring gender and/or sexual identity
Creating an authentic and meaningful life path
Assertiveness and communication
Relationship issues | Sexuality and asexuality | Loneliness
Navigating non-traditional relationship structures | Consensual Non-Monogamy, Polyamory
Living at the intersection of marginalized identities | Racial/BIPOC healing | LGBTQIA2-S support
Coming to terms with privilege
I especially welcome to my practice people whose identities and experiences are underrepresented, underserved, and marginalized. These aspects of identity may include, and are not limited to: relationship configuration, sexual orientation, gender identity, ability, weight, religion, spirituality, class, ethnicity, and race.
I am committed to therapeutic work that undoes systemic harm, work that empowers and affirms; I work with the person as a whole.
My psychotherapy work is grounded in psychodynamic theory, which means that I attune to and examine unconscious thought patterns. I also work relationally, meaning that we will pay close attention to what arises between us in the therapy room. Deepening your awareness of the forces that shape your internal and external world will help you make meaning of your past experiences and live more consciously and intentionally.
In my work with couples and other relationship configurations, I draw primarily from my training in Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT). EFT is the gold standard for evidence-based interventions in relationship work; it helps you and your loved ones establish safety and connection. I have also studied The Gottman Method with Drs. John and Julie Gottman, Collaborative Couples Counseling with Dr. Dan Wile, and Modern Relationships with Esther Perel; I weave these interventions throughout my work with you.
