My work is dedicated to helping people develop healthy, productive, and satisfying lives and relationships. I offer confidential psychotherapy for individuals, couples, and families. I am committed to helping you receive the services best suited for you, so I am happy to discuss your circumstances to determine if working together would be a good fit.

My approach to therapy draws inspiration from multiple theories and perspectives, from psychodynamic and psychoanalytic ideas, to cognitive-behavioral techniques, brief therapy models and the framework of Eastern medicine. I strongly believe that who we are and how our problems and ailments manifest results from the interaction between our innate character and constitution, the important formative relationships in our lives, our physical and social environment, and the various demands with which we are asked to contend. Whether I am working with you in ongoing, long-term therapy to understand and alter unhealthy or disruptive lifelong patterns, or briefly consulting on a circumscribed issue, my approach always includes openness, compassion, and a dedication to developing an understanding of the issues at hand within the context of your particular constitution and circumstances.
