My areas of expertise are stress management, adjustment/life transitions, relationship issues, communication, self-esteem, parenting support, and foster care/adoption issues. I work with all personality types, but am especially skilled working with people who describe themselves as introverts or highly sensitive (read more about highly sensitive people here: https://hsperson.com/). I also love to work with parents and expectant parents.
My approach is mainly psychodynamic and attachment-oriented, meaning I’m interested in how people evolve and grow and how our primary relationships such as with family and partners can make us feel emotionally secure or more emotionally in peril, and how these frameworks can repair over time. On a personal level I have found Somatic therapy, mindfulness, and self-compassion very helpful -- and these sometimes influence my clinical approach, too.
