To me, therapy is about self-discovery. It's about really trying to understand ourselves and what's behind our actions. That's why I work through a psychodynamic lens that focuses on exploring our past and present. I believe that when we do this, we begin to really feel self-compassion for ourselves and what we've been through and we begin to feel like we are able to integrate parts of ourselves that we once felt we couldn't. I also work through a mindfulness lens in which I use meditation to help ground my clients and push them to be mindful of the bodily sensations that arise in session. I work with both individuals and couples and specialize in working with folks who have been struggling with religious trauma, relationship issues, self-esteem, and an overall lack of meaning in life.
