“Friendship between therapist and patients is a necessary condition in the process of therapy – necessary, but not, however, sufficient. Psychotherapy is not a substitute for life but a dress rehearsal for life, In other words, though psychotherapy requires a close relationship, the relationship is not an end – it is a means to an end.”
― Irvin D. Yalom
My approach to therapy is one where the therapist shows up in an authentic way not as the expert but as a human with expertise. I am mindful how developmental, complex, attachment, and episodic traumas can affect our lives. I use the lens of attachment theory and value the impact our early relationships had in how we relate with others in the present. I believe in the power of therapy and know that our bodies and minds have an innate ability to heal if we can remove the obstacles that may be blocking the natural healing process. I am honored, humbled, and inspired when I can support you on that journey.
