My Approach to Helping

Psychotherapy is an endeavor that many people seek to improve the overall quality of their lives. Whether one is experiencing conflict within relationships, difficulties coping with stress, a specific life problem, or acute symptoms, the insights, skills and increased awareness that come from psychotherapy can be invaluable.

Given the complexity of our lives and the reasons we seek psychotherapy, treatment should be not only goal oriented and focused, but flexible and sensitive to the uniqueness of who we are. I employ a variety of evidence based therapeutic strategies and techniques, including Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), Psychodynamic Psychotherapy, and MindfulnessMentalization based practices to help individuals, couples, and families improve the quality of their lives.

What Makes up a Problem?

"...the symptom is not a 'disorder', it is a silenced truth that needs to be heard." -Agnes Aflalo

We all have aspects of ourselves that remain hidden, suppressed, outside of our awareness, unquestioned, etc. These aspects of our minds, though silenced, exert their influence on how we live our lives. Through meaningful therapy, we can gain insight and awareness into these forces, and freedom from them. This freedom can improve our relationships with others, improve our self concept, and allow us to become effectively responsive, not reactive to our emotions.
