“By shifting the ways in which we make meaning in the world around us, we shift our experience of the world. I believe in the unconscious and in the importance of being curious about the unique universe of every patient I see. Having worked primarily with individuals with personality disorders, I have great empathy for the suffering from which these styles of relating to the world developed to survive. Every treatment serves as a reminder to me that it is a privilege to sit with another person and to witness their process of transformation. By connecting with their values, and becoming grounded in the present I have seen individuals from a variety of diverse backgrounds and identity intersections increase their capacity to feel, understand, and integrate a range of emotional experiences and become curious about themselves and others.”
