My Approach to Helping

I have served as a psychologist for over 20 years, assisting people with issues such as work stress, relationship difficulties, depression, anxiety, and life transitions. I use a two-pronged approach. I address the specific concerns that brought you to therapy, then implement a therapeutic style compatible with your personality, challenges, and approach to learning. Everyone has the power to change their lives. Clients say I am caring and compassionate, yet straightforward.

Theoretical Influences that Guide My Work

I have training in several therapeutic approaches, including cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and psychodynamic. Psychodynamic approaches enable you to explore the relationship of the past to the present, while CBT focuses on current functioning by helping you become more mindful of your thinking and behavior patterns.
