Most of my work for over a decade and a half has dealt with the brain as a social organ, and how it can change in interactions with other brains/people. How the quality of relationship connections to self, others (community), our environment and (an) existential Other(s) can actually change our neural pathways. Systems Psychotherapists, are trained to attend to, and listen- to cojourney, with their clients through a reflective, thoughtful process of discovery to develop richer connections within the relational, systemic spaces they occupy.
I am earnest about building and supporting people to reach their potential in all aspects of their lives, both personally, and professionally.
Working in private practice in The National Capital Region since 2003, I offer short-term and long-term trauma-informed psychotherapy services to individuals, and couples facing challenges impacting their emotional, relational and spiritual health.I have met some of the highest standards in the field of relational therapy .
I believe in respecting people as whole individuals who are resourceful and creative. My aim is to offer an attentive therapeutic ear and collaboratively walk with you on a personal exploration, that could potentially help you become increasingly conscious of yourself, validating your inner world while opening up new possibilities that encourage emotional balance, relational well-being, and positive change. I draw on my graduate and post-graduate training to work from various mainstream psychological and empirically validated approaches integrating, where beneficial and desired, personal concepts of spirituality and/or religious belief.
