My Clinical Focus

A therapist's clinical focus or special interest indicates that they have chosen to specialize in a specific area, population, or approach within the field of counseling and psychotherapy. These specializations are obtained through additional training, experience, or a personal interest in a particular aspect of mental health or therapy. Therapists with a clinical focus or special interest may have extensive knowledge and experience with specific issues, populations (such as children, couples, or trauma survivors), or therapeutic modalities. This specialization enables them to provide more targeted and effective support to clients dealing with specific concerns related to their clinical focus.

Highly Sensitive Personalities

Did you have caregivers that were emotionally dismissive, unresponsive, or critical as a child? Do you frequently feel unworthy or have problems embracing yourself and others? Do you frequently internalize what others say? You may even be sensitive to criticism, even helpful criticism. Do you want to take steps toward emotional security, strengthen interdependence, and freely communicate your views and feelings? Do you often sabotage or have difficulty maintaining stable relationships? Find it difficult to cope with intense emotions or cycle through emotional states?

Complex PTSD, Trauma and Dissociation

A traumatic incident or event can have a range of effects. When you have a series of stressful incidents, it might have long-term and adverse implications on your life. It has the potential to influence your feelings, thoughts, relationships, habits, attitudes, dreams, and hopes. Three primary factors can have an impact on how you react to distressing occurrences. Have you been directly or indirectly affected by a traumatic event, or have you been a witness to one? Do you frequently find yourself in situations where you may see painful or stressful events? Are you looking to do inner child work or parts work? Do you feel like you experienced dissociative symptoms? Have you experienced identity-based traumatic experiences?

 

I believe trauma is almost always relational and many people are working through integrating, and reflecting on the impact of relational trauma.

Couple's Portrait

Couples &Multiple Partnerships

Our personal experiences are heavily emphasized in our relationships and connections with others. It reflects, like a flame, our upbringing, unconscious, and interior spheres of identities, values, and pursuits. We all want to feel connected and to be a part of something. We want to go into the depths of who we are and be pushed into other parts of ourselves through our connections. Every one of us has a story that influences the strength of those connections.
