A BIT ABOUT THERAPY
My intention is to help you to find a stable ground so that feelings of depression, loneliness, and anxiety are no longer holding you hostage in your own life. Our work is designed to help you discover a sense of hope, peace, courage, self-compassion, and deep relational connections.
I approach treatment through the lens of Attachment Theory. My theoretical orientation is rooted in Interpersonal Neurobiology, Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy and other somatic approaches. Therapy sessions are mindfulness-based, active and experiential. Meaning, we practice new ways of being and responding to familiar triggers. You will learn tools to regulate your nervous system so that you can integrate parts of yourself that have been left behind. It is this intentional vulnerability in a safe space that allows you to experience yourself as a capable and authentic human being. And with time, you will be able to carry that mindfulness outside of our sessions. The more we practice self-regulation and attunement to our bodies, the more we can access a sense of peace and confidence in all aspects of our lives.
As we gain awareness and find sanctuary in our most authentic self, we begin to create significant shifts in the way we interact and connect with others, transforming our relationships and discovering true intimacy. This experiential process fosters a newfound trust in the body. Discovering the internal resources that already exist within restores life vitality and creates a ripple effect in all realms of our life. Integrating the body and mind can help many individuals gain freedom from past experiences in order to approach life from a place of empowerment.
“In order to change, people need to become aware of their sensations and the way that their bodies interact with the world around them. Physical self-awareness is the first step in releasing the tyranny of the past.”
