In clinical terms, I chiefly operate from a person-centered, trauma-informed approach while utilizing attachment theory. In practice this means my top priority is establishing a safe and trusting relationship with my client, which is a continuous process. From there I work hard to understand the current and past relationships, or lack of relationships, in your life including romantic partners, friendships, and family relationships. In session we can start to see patterns in your relationships and how they may be helping or harming you. This process helps put into context past experiences which may still be impacting you today without conscious realization.
