“I am here to support you through your individual path towards growth and healing”
My therapeutic work comprises person-centered and emotion-focused approaches. At the cornerstone of my theoretical orientation, is the belief that human beings are inherently trustworthy and possess an intrinsic ability to move towards healing when they are supported in doing so. Attachment theory greatly informs my approach in sessions, as our early life experiences and bonds significantly impact how we interact with others and the world around us. I am also fascinated by neurobiology and often bring this into our sessions to facilitate a greater understanding of the mechanisms of the mind and body. We may also utilize various evidence-based practices such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) to better identify the connection between our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Furthermore, I hold a 200 hr yoga teacher certification which influences my practice through the use of somatic experiencing and embodiment exercises when appropriate.
Adolescence is a transformative time that does not come without challenges. Exploring self-identity, gaining independence, navigating unfamiliar roles, and forming new relationships is not an easy feat! I am here to provide a non-judgmental, collaborative, and caring space to teens. We will work together to identify personal strengths and foster resiliency to life’s challenges. A family-systems approach also informs my work as we are inextricably connected with others in our immediate environment. Whatever your current life circumstance may be, I am here to meet you where you are at.
We're Here For You
