Psychotherapy is nothing less than a mythical journey. The hero within you has made a choice to go within, confront personal and relationship challenges, and emerge a more complete self. As a person-centered psychotherapist I provide a golden thread, keeping you safe on your path, determined by your goals, and collecting your strengths along the way.
“Why do you have the golden thread?” you might ask. As a trained professional psychotherapist, I draw on theory, experience, collaboration, and a growing body of scientific evidence that shows us not only how the brain gets stuck in unhelpful patterns, but how assist you in resetting these patterns. I strive to really listen, truly understand your culture, and your strengths, and work hard to keep you as the focus of the transformation and growth.
I work with a diverse range of clients, including children, adolescents, families, adults, couples and groups. I draw from a broad theoretical model, but have clinical expertise in mindfulness and meditation, exploring relationships, both past and present, and addressing unhelpful patterns.
I draw upon multiple theories to include: play and filial therapy for children, dialectical behavior therapy (DBT), systems and structural theory for families, imago and Gottman theory for couples, a variety of addiction recovery models, depth psychotherapy, narrative therapy, psychodevelopmental psychology, inner child work and spiritual direction.
