"But people are oceans, she shrugged. You cannot know them by their surface."
– BEAU TAPLIN
While I have studied the mind and explored many theories of relationship, change, and healing, I maintain the belief that each of us is the authority and expert on our own stories. And I think of therapy as a journey with you.
I may have a specific map and will work diligently with you to point out landscapes and mile-markers. I may have indications of where we will travel together, but the destination is up to you.
Understanding where you come from and the systems and relationships that have shaped you is important. So too is the theory that a therapist may choose to work within. I know that my own story and life experiences inform what I have chosen to study and how I practice. Psychodynamic theory is based in the relationship—in the belief that relationships shape us, harm us, and heal us. Our relationship will be used as a lens to the rest of your world. When appropriate, I will also draw from trauma theory, attachment theory, art therapy directives, and somatic practices to inform how you might look at the stories you bring.
I hope to be a hospitable space to all of the parts of who you are, offering my attention to you with my gratefulness for the courage it takes to seek help from another person.
