My approach to counseling and psychotherapy is informed by relational, psychodynamic theory. I believe attention, exploration and interpretation of the therapeutic relationship has the greatest potential for meaningful, long-lasting change. I am interested in helping people develop a more authentic sense of their selves and their relationships to others, greater flexibility in their understanding of both internal and external events, and greater creativity in their approach to life. I do my best to meet the individual needs of each client, allowing their priorities and way of working to co-determine our approach and collaboration.
