Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I am in private practice in Lafayette. I see individuals who present with a variety of issues ranging from depression, anxiety and life transitions to relationship issues and/or substance use in themselves or their family system. I work deeply with attachment styles, deficits from childhood and finding the parts of ourselves that are needed to become whole. I see families in transition as well as adolescents who are having difficulties navigating that challenging phase of life. I also see children who are experiencing social difficulties, anxiety and/or family re-configuration, i.e. divorce. Adoption and infertility/grief work are other specialties. I love sorting through the complexities of client’s experiences and find that doing this work is immensely satisfying.
