The primary focus of my therapy is on the impact that relationships have on our well-being. It is my philosophy that our interpersonal relationships, past and present, determine our sense of self, of who we think we are.
In addition to a Masters in Family Therapy, I have received training in psychodynamic and object relations-focused therapy. In simple language, this style of therapy proposes that childhood experiences influence development and shape the personality. Memories can remain embedded in the unconscious and surface in ways of self-defeating thoughts and actions.
Depression, anxiety, addiction, and relationship issues are some symptoms that are often correlated with ruptures in connections. Life changes, such as losses in careers, relationship status, and other curveballs (the pandemic) can exacerbate our way of being.
I bring curiosity and compassion to the treatment space, and the willingness to understand my clients’ experiences. My clinical training is noted below.
