Description

AEDP is my therapeutic home. I also bring an interest in psychoanalytic therapy and I appreciate the value of skills work such as DBT.
My general approach is to help clients access difficult emotions that may have seemed too powerful to be experienced in the past. Some times that involves building skills and capacity to help clients stay grounded and feel in control in spite strong feelings. Often accessing emotions means getting into the bodily experience of the feeling and experiencing it while addressing the fear or shame that may have kept the sadness or grief locked away. I don’t see my role as having simple answers or advice for clients. Rather, I want to help clients know themselves and their own minds more fully.
I regularly consult with an AEDP supervisor to grow as a therapist.
