Welcome! I provide individual and couples psychotherapy online; built on seventeen years of experience in clinics and private practice in USA (Atlanta, GA & Asheville, NC) and online with clients from all over the world. I am an IMAGO Relationship Therapist and Consultant,with advanced training.
I work with individuals and couples who are wanting to move beyond stuckness in their lives with in-depth understanding and more meaningful connections. Sometimes the stuckness can show up as panic attacks or anger issues, or maybe indecision, depression or a creative block . Often in exploring the "problem" and our reality, we find the way beyond and what our psyches are calling us towards.
Working together... My background includes person-centered, experiential and psychodynamic theory. I primarily embrace approaches to psychotherapy that work with the body and engage with the unconscious (depth psychology). We listen to the subtle movements, language and patterns that underlie your choices and what is trying to come forward and be heard in your life. This is particularly guided by my practice of the experiential somatic approach Focusing. Learning to listen to the story and wisdom of our bodily process is an incredibly powerful tool for growth.
I specialize in IMAGO relationship work. With the help of this method, we address frayed and stuck communication patterns in order to restore connection and the drive for growth and integration, both within the relationship and individually. And, I offer personal Focusing sessions, distinct from a psychotherapy framework .
I look forward to our meeting and creating a space for meaningful change. Reach out to me with any questions.
