My approach to psychotherapy is deeply influenced by the work of Diana Fosha, Ph.D., and her healing and growth oriented practice of AEDP, Accelerated Experiential Dynamic Psychotherapy (see www.aedpinstitute.org). AEDP incorporates relational and developmental analytic traditions, neuroscience research, emotion theory and attachment studies.
Sessions are built upon the core values of connectedness, engagement, listening and responsiveness. We will work together to create a safe and secure therapeutic relationship. As this safe and secure relationship is established, emotions, sensations, thoughts, and unconscious material can be explored, experienced and processed together. This is essential for healing, which occurs naturally, through an inner organic healing process.
At the heart of my work is the firm belief that we are all hard wired with self-righting tendencies and for overcoming obstacles that block our potential for growth and healing. The therapeutic relationship is simply the catalyst for such exploration and change, and can lead to a transformation in our relationship with ourselves and the world around us.
Doing work that is enriching, meaningful to me and fuels my deepest passion is an invaluable gift. I feel honored and humbled to serve every individual who comes through my door.
