psychotherapy, you will have an opportunity to make changes in your life
by recognizing and updating patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving that
are no longer effective. We'll notice how you respond to and engage with the
people and experiences in your life; where you charge forward and where you
hold back; and where past experiences impinge on the present. We’ll identify
beliefs that are no longer accurate and hot spots where you tend to get stuck
in feelings such as fear, anxiety, sadness, guilt or shame. Together we’ll
explore concerns or problems from an analytical angle while, simultaneously, we
gradually access the emotional and psychological threads weaving through the
situation. We’ll do this in a regulated and mindful way to allow access to
deeper psychological material without the loss of your capacity to think
clearly, make rational choices, and feel in control.
I help clients
with a range of concerns including relationship issues, depression, and
anxiety. I also specialize in working with clients who have experienced trauma
in their lives -- major traumatic events as well as more ordinary life
experiences that have had a lasting impact.
I utilize a
number of therapeutic modalities, including psychodynamic psychotherapy,
relational psychotherapy, somatic psychotherapy, AEDP, Hakomi, Sensorimotor
Psychotherapy and EMDR. I work collaboratively with each client to determine
the style and approach to therapy that provides the best fit.
