My Approach to Psychotherapy
I consider each person to be unique and do not believe that one therapy modality meets the needs of everyone. Therefore, my approach is integrative and tailored to you. I combine therapeutic tools and approaches from Relational (Interpersonal Neurobiology, Attachment-based & Intersubjectivity); Depth-oriented/Psychodynamic; Trauma Informed; Existential; mindfulness; Eye-Movement Desensitization Reprocessing (EMDR) & Cognitive-Behavioral Therapies.
What is Relational Psychotherapy?
Relational psychotherapy reflects a number of different influences including: interpersonal psychoanalysis, object relations theory, self psychology, feminist and postmodern thinking, infant–mother developmental research (including research on attachment theory), and developments in emotion theory and research.
What is Depth Psychotherapy?
Depth Psychology refers to therapy approaches that facilitate exploration of the subtle, unconscious, and transpersonal aspects of human experience. A depth approach may include techniques that explore the unconscious, dreams, complexes, and archetypes. Depth psychology is non-pathologizing and strength affirming. Generally these psychologies view the human being as often divided within self, with some thoughts, feelings, wishes, and memories accessible to awareness, and others hidden beneath the surface. Healing is associated with allowing what has been repressed, rejected, denied or ignored to come into awareness so that the person can understand, explore its significance and integrate it, allowing for a transformation.
