I specialize in helping adolescents, adults, couples, and families to improve their ability to relate with others through counseling and therapy. I maintain a non-judgmental attitude and provide a safe, confidential space for you to have your thoughts and feelings. Together we will work to understand your relationships with others and yourself. Over time, you will gain insight and process difficult feelings. You will find yourself increasingly able to move through life in a more present, thought out, and successful manner.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

My theoretical orientation is psychodynamic/psychoanalytic psychotherapy. The psychodynamic approach stresses discussion of a patients thoughts, feelings, and perceptions in order to identify unwanted repeating patterns in life. It also focuses on making connections between our therapy relationship and your other relationships.
