“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” (Anais Nin)
For many of us there comes a time when our old, familiar ways of doing things are no longer working; we find ourselves lost, stuck, or facing seemingly impossible roadblocks to the relationship, career, or life we most deeply desire. I provide a compassionate, non-judgmental space in which to uncover how you can get out of your own way and show up fully for yourself, others, and the opportunities of life.
When working with individuals I draw from the powerful methodology of AEDP (Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy). With roots in interpersonal neurobiology, attachment theory, and affective neuroscience this approach seeks to directly harness the brain’s innate capacity for neuroplasticity; for deep and lasting change throughout the lifespan.
If past traumas are limiting your sense of aliveness and agency we have the option of integrating EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization Reprocessing), an evidence-based trauma treatment, into our work.
I’m also trained in EFT (Emotionally Focused Couples therapy) if you are interested in couples work. In this approach I support you and your partner in moving from painful states of disconnection into more secure ways of relating, allowing you to build a foundation of safety, connection, and intimacy in your relationship.
