Welcome.

I'm Carly (she/her). It is so good to have you here.

My approach to therapy is built on attachment science and community care. Our relationships matter; With our families, our communities, our cultures, our partners, and ourselves. I believe that nothing is more important -- and therefore more emotionally risky -- than opening ourselves up to love and be loved. 

As humans, we all have core attachment needs -- To be safe, loved, accepted, enough -- and nearly all of us have had experiences of those needs being ruptured or dropped on interpersonal or systemic levels. It is a profoundly painful experience and one that can hold us back from security, worth, love, and the ability to trust. The good news? We can heal those wounds through new experiences. That's where therapy comes in.

“Compassion is not a relationship between the healer and the wounded. It's a relationship between equals. Only when we know our own darkness well can we be present with the darkness of others. Compassion becomes real when we recognize our shared humanity.”
