My Approach to Psychotherapy

I consider myself an attachment-informed, emotionally-focused psychotherapist. I incorporate somatic, experiential, and relational modalities that are informed by attachment theory, object relations theory, relational neuroscience, and somatic mindfulness.

Somatic: Nervous System Regulation, Physiological & Affective Felt Experience

Experiential: Here-and-Now, Moment-to-Moment

Relational: Connection between Client-Therapist, Client-Self, Client-Others (past and present)

Emotionally-Focused: Our emotions grant insight into our inner world. We can use this insight to compassionately show up for ourselves and decide how we want to navigate our external circumstances with more intention.

Parts-Oriented: Practice from the belief that the Self is not one whole, but is made up of many parts that all influence how we show up and navigate our lives.
