I believe the relationship between client and therapist is an essential part of the process. The therapy room can be considered a microcosm of your outside world and naming and clarifying experiences and dynamics that occur between us can help foster the development of insight and helpful solutions. With my support and guidance these corrective experiences can heal old wounds and shift maladaptive thoughts and patterns to help you feel more balanced and fulfilled with your life. Common themes include relationship issues, job satisfaction, gender identity and sexual orientation, depression, anxiety and processing trauma.
Because I do enjoy the creativity and embodied experience of play, when interested, I like to help people imagine ways that they can create their own replenishing experiences whether it be through movement, visualization, meditation or breathing. I believe these are at the heart of emotional regulation. I also work well with people who are either creative or curious about developing this part of themselves as it is such an essential component of problem solving.
