I approach couples counseling from developmental and attachment-based models. In sessions we will explore, in real time, how the couple challenges, supports and co-regulates as a unit. We begin by observing the attachment styles of each member, meaning, how do you respond to interpersonal stress? Then explore how these attachment styles also give each member of the couple information about what the other needs. We will often recreate life stressors in session and work through them together. Sessions can last one to two hours, depending on what we explore.

We will explore areas of pain and struggle as well as identifying and cultivating your inherent strengths. I work with both teenagers and adults.

Therapy looks different for everyone because we all come with our unique stories, trials and attributes. My job is to create an environment of safety and fundamental acceptance, where we can begin to set goals that promote healing and challenge you to meet your full potential.

An important part of healing and maintaining mental health is finding routines and making choices that support your basic well-being. Asking questions like, how do you prioritize your time? Where do you feel balanced? Where do you feel depleted? These can be difficult questions to ask and can sometimes challenge old coping mechanisms, but once you can look at your choices with more consciousnesses, making new choices feels both easy and natural. 

I am here to support you in this process of evolution. We will look at old patterns, set new goals and create an individualized plan that allows meaningful changes in your lifestyle to occur deliberately and with minimal stress.

By examining how your life informs and influences your career choices, we can begin to recognize your unique talents and how those can be applied to a career path that is exciting, fulfilling and meaningful.
