Welcome to my website!
I specialize in relationship issues, practicing Dan Siegel's Interpersonal Neurobiology and Stan Tatkin's Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy (PACT). I combine these with the awareness and knowledge of how Attachment Theory, unconscious coping strategies and associated developmental relational deficits underlie most, if not all, relational difficulties.
My work is based on my ability to be deeply present with myself and my clients. From this attunement to the client's needs I assess key issues and provide reparative experiences often based on underlying attachment issues, arousal regulation and developmental neuroscience. Utilizing a capacity model (as opposed to a psychopathology model) based on therapeutic enactments and relational repairs, the therapeutic alliance becomes the basis for a neurological rewiring of originally wounded relational blueprints.
