Psychotherapy for Individuals
In my work, I draw from a range of approaches, largely from Internal Family Systems (IFS), with the additional integration of Mindfulness, Attachment Based Therapy, and Person Centered Therapy. My work also incorporates a meditative and mind-body experience, as we acknowledge and get to know the feelings we carry within our bodies.
Internal Family Systems (IFS)
Internal Family Systems therapy is a non-pathologizing approach to psychotherapy. It emphasizes the natural multiplicity of the mind. The grounding assumption is that there are no bad parts, only parts forced into "bad roles." When we learn how to access Self, we can then heal our wounded parts.
Mindfulness-based therapy uses techniques such as mindfulness meditation to learn how to consciously pay attention to our thoughts and feelings without placing any judgments upon them.
Attachment Based Therapy
Attachment-based therapy is an approach to therapy that specifically targets thoughts, feelings, communications, behaviors, and interpersonal exchanges that we have learned either to suppress and avoid or to amplify and overemphasize because of early attachment experiences.
Person Centered Therapy
One of the main goals of person-centered therapy is to work towards becoming “fully functioning”. The phenomenological approach refers to our unique perception of our own world and experience, consequently reacting in an individual way.
Schedule an Individual Therapy Session
And this is where the inner journey either resumes or begins!
Drawing from Internal Family Systems (IFS) and meditative grounding work, I use both talk therapy and mind-body practices to help you tune into what's happening internally and emotionally - noticing patterns, thoughts, feelings, and/or behaviors that just don't feel quite like You. Within the work, we also strengthen and reconnect with your own Self energy (the You who feels most like You), in order to help, hold, and heal what has brought you to therapy.
The out-of-pocket fee is $150.00 per 60 minute session. I also accept Husky/Medicaid, Cigna, Anthem Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Optum, ConnectiCare, and United Healthcare insurance, with which you are only responsible for your plan's co-payment.
Due to the pandemic, I am currently only offering phone sessions or video sessions via FaceTime or Zoom, whichever is most convenient for you. The return date for in-person office sessions has yet to be determined.
