GET TO KNOW
Izzy Blaber, Clinical Intern
Hi! I’m Izzy.
Relationships and communication are integral to our well-being. Each of us participate in a variety of relationships, including our relationship with ourselves, other people, and the systems around us. While it might seem like everyone magically knows how to “do” relationships, in reality the ability to be in community with others (and with ourselves) is an acquired skill. Being in healthy relationships helps us get our needs met. When those relationships deteriorate, we often see disruptions in our well-being like anxiety, depression, and disordered eating.
My goal is to offer space for clients to show up as their authentic selves, explore their emotions, and improve their relationship with themselves and others. This looks a little different for each person depending on what they need. I’m passionate about working with clients who identify as LGBTQ+, are navigating ADHD, anxiety, and/or disordered eating.
In therapy I use a flexible and integrated approach with features of interpersonal process, ACT, relational-cultural theory, and other modalities. I approach therapy work from a feminist-multicultural lens, and I believe that people usually do the best they can with what they have at any given time. Therapy work is thus an opportunity for collaboration between us, as well as an opportunity to practice relational and communication skills.
I consider it a privilege to be part of each client’s therapeutic experience; please reach out if you’re interested in working together!
