Billing and Insurance

My approach to therapy is rooted in Intensive Short-term Dynamic Psychotherapy, an evidenced based treatment for many emotional and relational difficulties. In addition, I have over 20 years of training in mindfulness and Zen meditation. I believe that in order for changes in therapy to take hold and make a true difference in somebody's life, there has to be an experiential understanding, not just cognitive insight. Many therapies focus on symptom relief but rarely work on understanding and uprooting the causes of pain. I believe that both are essential. My style is attentive, active, and engaging. During our sessions I will pay close attention to your difficulties, life circumstances and your strengths. In addition, I will attend to your moment to moment experience including your anxiety, emotions, and thoughts as they arise in session. This is perhaps the most important territory for real experiential therapy. I will always share my thoughts with you as they arise and listen to your feedback as we move forward.

On the Fence About Going to Therapy?
Oftentimes, people will hesitate to seek help especially when it comes to therapy. People often assume that they need a "diagnosis" to see a therapist or that only "mentally ill" people see therapists. However, sometimes we just feel that our life is a bit off and we aren't sure what to do. We may feel stuck, out to sea, or ungrounded. Therapy can be a powerful tool to help us find out what we need and it can help us explore the best ways to get back on track.
