We are wired to connect with others, but before we can do that, we have to connect with ourselves, our genuine self.
Sometimes, it is difficult to see and even accept who we are, as our vision becomes clouded by our childhood experiences, our attachment to our main caregivers, what others tell us about us ……
Through our time together, I will help part that fog and help you see yourself more clearly, accept yourself more fully and hold yourself more confidently.
It is well researched that it is through connections with others that we thrive. When our relationships are not going well, whether it is with co-workers, family members or our most beloved person, we feel lost and disoriented. This sense of disconnect affects our sense of well-being and even our daily functioning.
My work as a relational therapist is to help you regain connection with yourself and with others. We feel emotionally and mentally stronger when we can face life as a team and know we are on the same page.
I have been in this profession for over 20 years. During this time period, I have worked with people from diverse cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations. I love the different insights and perspectives that each person brings to therapy. I practice from the lens of Attachment Theory, Psychodynamic Theory, as well as in Emotionally Focused Couple Therapy. But more than the trainings I have received, I also bring to the sessions insights, patience and compassion I have gained just from living life.
On the following pages, you will read about some of the topics I am most passionate about.
