My Approach to Helping
I believe the therapeutic relationship can promote healing, and that therapy does not have to be an intimidating experience. I work with adults, adolescents and children, and have expertise in play therapy and family therapy. I am warm and genuine and will always respect where you are on your journey. I utilize an approach based on CBT and psychodynamic theories, but I like to tailor the treatment to the unique needs of my clients. I incorporate a zen-like frame of mind to life and it's problems, and strive to create a tranquil and safe space.

My hours of operation are mainly Fridays, Sundays and Tuesday evenings, but am flexible to schedule appointments outside of those hours, if requested.
Important Factors for Choosing a Therapist
Studies seem to suggest that the therapeutic relationship is more important than a particular skill or theory that is used. I firmly believe this. Your inner voice will likely inform you as to whether or not a therapist can assist you. Listen to that voice, and always advocate for yourself. A good therapist believes their client is the best teacher, and a therapist should always offer unconditional positive regard. These ingredients are the keys to healing.
