People have innate resilience that is designed to help them navigate their family and community of origin. As we grow, our environment and the people around us change, making the strategies that were once needed no longer serve our current context and selves. This causes suffering. Therapy is an editing process to fill in gaps, let go of what is no longer needed or working, and reclaim that resilience to more flexibly navigate our lives.
Using integrative strategies grounded in Acceptance and Commitment Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, and psychoanalytic theory we will refine and develop your story while developing skills to navigate daily life.
I specialize in a wide variety of body-focused concerns such as aging, trauma, chronic illness, gender dysphoria, postpartum depression and eating disorders, among others. This specialty extends to normative developmental processes such as early adulthood and phase of life transitions. I am a specialist in LGBTQAI issues.
My therapeutic style is relational and grounded in skills-building and story-telling. We will both learn pragmatic skills to reduce suffering and improve daily functioning, while also considering the internal narratives and history that get in the way of lasting change.
