My clinical practice is heavily influenced by Attachment Theory. I am attuned to relational experiences with an emphasis on expression of needs and perception of accessibility. I rely heavily on the emerging field of neuroscience to inform my understanding of trauma and how it impacts the brain and behavior, and I practice from a trauma-informed lens, assuming all clients may have a history of trauma. One of my primary aims is to reduce chances of re-traumatization during the counseling process. This philosophy is enacted through transparent counseling practices including shared goal setting, treatment planning, and conversations regarding clients’ perceptions of progress.
