I work well with individuals who struggle with creating and maintaining long term interpersonal relationships with others. These would be those people who feel dissatisfied in their friendships and marriage because there something is lacking or is so dissatisfying to them that they cannot bear it and drop the relationship. I am also effective with people who suffered an emotional trauma or have been emotionally deprived or neglected and are now longing for a connection in a way that makes them feel too needy and overbearing to others.
Many times, fears of rejection or abandonment prevent my clients from seeking and creating meaningful relationships. In our work together, we explore these fears, re-examine old patterns and perspectives, and create new experiences that help build new pathways that allow for deeper connections. I have completed my EMDRIA Approved EMDR Basic Training through the Parnell Institute which specializes in Attachment-Focused EMDR.
I am a certified counselor for perinatal and postpartum mood and anxiety disorders, including depression and anxiety during pregnancy, postpartum depression and anxiety, OCD, and postpartum psychosis. I work with new parents who are struggling with the adjustment to parenthood, feelings of guilt, depression and anxiety, and the loneliness one can feel when caring for a baby.
