Eclectic Depth Therapy
I specialize in working with members of the LGBTQ+ community, creatives, and other adults to improve and deepen relationships with self and others. Most of my clients come to get support with anxiety, depression, and interpersonal relationships. Eclectic depth therapy means I selectively apply techniques from a variety of approaches to best fit your unique needs, addressing body, mind, and spirit. I work primarily from a relational psychoanalytic lens to get to the root of the deeper issues by exploring your relational history and how it has shaped you, identifying your attachment style, and bringing your unconscious to light.
As your therapist, I have a gentle and loving approach, while also challenging you and bringing attention to your blind spots (we all have ’em!) if need be. I will always show up with compassion, empathy, understanding, and acceptance. Whether you are feeling anxious and/or depressed and not sure why, struggling with your identity, healing from heartache or trauma, or simply want to improve your self-awareness and esteem, you don’t have to go through it alone. Together, through a supportive and authentic relationship, we will help you work through your personal struggles, tap into your inner knowing, change patterns that are no longer serving you, and help you figure out what’s been getting in the way of being the healthiest version of the unique person you are, so that you can live your best, or as I like to say, “grooviest” life.
“The privilege of a lifetime is to become who you truly are.”
~ Carl Jung
In depth therapy, the goal is to work together collaboratively to bring to light the unconscious beliefs and wounds that are holding you back, and integrate the various parts of yourself to create a more whole, healthy, authentic version of you. Deep down you hold the answers to your own life’s mysteries and questions, and within a supportive therapeutic relationship, you can gain a greater understanding of your own inner world, and create positive changes in your life so that you can experience more hope, inner peace, and joy.
As human beings we are wired to connect with others, but sometimes our childhood or past relationship experiences can create challenges in that department. Perhaps there were relationships in your family that modeled unhealthy attachment patterns, or maybe due to circumstances in your life, you have struggled the most with your relationship with yourself. I help my clients excavate where those barriers are coming from, find love and acceptance for yourself no matter where you are at, and discover a new healthier path forward in your relationship to yourself and your loved ones. There is hope!
Come as you are
Therapy is a safe and judgment-free space in which you can identify the patterns that aren’t working for you, become more self-aware of negative perceptions and beliefs that are holding you back, and grow towards becoming the best version of yourself. Each of us is on a unique and personal journey of growth and evolution, and by learning how to harness your strengths and evolve through your setbacks, you can discover your individual potential, and create the life of your dreams.
