My Approach to Helping

I offer therapy tailored to meet my clients' needs and draw from a variety of theoretical orientations, including psychodynamic (insight oriented), cognitive-behavioral (skills), and trauma-informed treatments (EMDR).

More Info About My Practice

Our lives consist of welcome routines and happy memories, turning points and challenges. Sometimes it is painfully difficult. Perhaps you have experienced the loss of a dream or a loved one, or been unable to move past a traumatic event. Maybe life feels like a daily rut, void of meaning or joy. Even in the company of people who care about us we can feel alone, sad or overwhelmed. Therapy can help.

Clients describe me as genuine, compassionate, thoughtful and interactive. My hope is that you will experience psychotherapy as a relationship and partnership in which you feel engaged, empowered, influential and self-aware. Therapy can be a deeply rewarding experience and I would be honored to welcome you into my practice.

Had a Negative Therapy Experience?

If you have had a negative experience in the past, it's understandable that you would approach therapy reluctantly. The only reassurance that matters is your personal experience. To that end I would say that when you do find a therapist that you trust, and a therapeutic space that feels safe, the possibilities for change and healing are among the best gifts you can give yourself.

Importance of the Client-Therapist Alliance

Human beings are relational by nature. That's good news because it is relationships that anchor our healing and growth process. Amidst our struggles if we can find healthy relational connection we begin to experience change and move through our pain or block towards a place of greater happiness and freedom. This kind of progress only happens when others extend to us safety, caring, respect and attentive listening. The client-therapist relationship offers this kind of dynamic and space.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

Mental health struggles are very often multi-dimensional; our biochemistry and genetic vulnerabilities to certain issues matter and so does our environment and stress.
