I believe the therapeutic relationship to be the foundation of an effective therapeutic process, one that is based on safety, collaboration and trust. With me, therapy is a time and space to be curious about your inner experiences, so you can explore what will create and your happiest and healthiest life. In addition to exploring the difficult events and emotions you may be experiencing, therapy is also a time to celebrate your successes and victories, to explore and reconnect with your hopes and dreams, a time and place just for you.
My clinical framework is most strongly rooted in the humanistic-existential approach to therapy. This means that I maintain a client-centered approach which emphasizes the importance of the therapeutic alliance, empathy, and unconditional support which lead to a deeper sense of self-awareness and understanding. I also pull from other treatment approaches such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), which explores our thought patterns and how they affect our emotions and behaviors, and Internal Family Systems (IFS), a framework that compassionately acknowledges our human experience of having different “parts.”
I am a certified yoga instructor and am continuously in awe of yoga’s ability to heal, both emotionally and physically. The mind-body connection is undeniable and I believe yoga and mindfulness to be a powerful tool in finding a greater sense of ease, peace and confidence within our selves. I incorporate yoga and mindfulness based practices to guide you to a place of increased well-being.
