Methodology

My Approach:

Sometimes we arrive at a place in our lives where we feel that we are continually pulling on the ends of a knot. Instead of untangling, the knot becomes tighter. In a safe space designed to encourage reflection, we will unpack current difficulties and long-standing issues in the context of past experiences. All of us are impacted by our upbringing, and if we can begin to understand these experiences and how they affect the roles we play in the world, then we are at an undeniable advantage for improving our well-being.

My clients gain new perspectives, increased levels of understanding, and effective communication and mindfulness strategies that promote health and happiness rather than conflict.

By drawing upon psychodynamic, mentalization, and somatic (body) experience techniques, my clients are better able to create fundamental connections between their mind and body and, with time, newfound awareness that leads to change and personal growth.
