Profile
“I am trained as a Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator®, a parenting program that helps caregivers understand and support their children and enhance their relationships.”
What was your path to becoming a therapist?
I was drawn to become a therapist after working with parents of children with special needs and developmental delays and sensing that I wanted to continue to deepen my work. I am trained as a Circle of Security Parenting Facilitator®, a parenting program that helps caregivers understand and support their children and enhance their relationships.
What should someone know about working with you?
I am a compassionate therapist who will guide you on your journey toward healing and finding your true self. Within a safe and compassionate space, we will uncover the ways in which you wish to grow and expand your life, your sense of self, your career, and your relationships. I work with clients from a relational, social-cultural, and psychodynamic perspective. During therapy, we will uncover and explore the obstacles that are getting in the way of you achieving your goals. I value taking an emotion-focused and attachment-based approach in my work, specifically when working with parents and more broadly with adults.
How do your core values shape your approach to therapy?
My core values of integrity, kindness, and compassion guide my life and practice. I believe that these values have guided my work as a therapist in that I hold sacred the therapy space and each person I am supporting. It is of utmost importance for me to create a safe and nonjudgmental therapeutic process. I honor each person's journey and support them in making the choices that best support their life. I welcome all experiences within my practice and meet you where you are, outside of beliefs about what is right or wrong, and in true alignment with your authentic self.
