Description

I am currently self-employed at my own mental health practice, It's A Matter of Healing, LLC, in Fremont, CA. I have spent the last several years training in various attachment based therapy models after many years of training and practice in psychodynamic models as well as more cognitive based models such as Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). My background has provided me with broad exposure to pathways to healing and understanding the physiological and emotional reactions to misattunement. I fundamentally believe in the science of attachment and view it as the bedrock of survival fitness. Understanding our evolution of attachment and how we care about significant moments of disconnection is for me essential to the process of healing trauma. I describe myself as a trauma specialist because for me trauma is synonymous with loss and is the cause of all suffering, including relational. The field of understanding mental illness is rapidly accelerating in a manner that is paradoxically encouraging us to slow down to connect in the moment in a much deeper way. The experience of the moment, of connecting to understand and care is often what is missed in the aftermath of a disconnection and trauma. Moment to moment connecting with each other and with ourselves is essential in the process of self-regulating our nervous system and allowing healing to take place. I am looking forward to working with you and continuing to learn by experience about the enormous impact of attachment bonding, injury and repair.
