My Approach to Helping
I believe that psychotherapy with a therapist who is a good "fit" for you can make a profound difference in the way you experience yourself in the world, and can free you to live a life that feels authentic and an expression of your true self. I will help create an atmosphere of trust and understanding and a safe and reliable space within which we can explore those difficulties and feelings which have led you to seek help.
Some people come to therapy because of an immediate crisis or for help dealing with sudden loss or an overwhelming problem. Others are suffering from more chronic issues, such as pervasive and ongoing depression or anxiety, relationship troubles of all kinds, problems with eating, or the devastating consequences of trauma and abuse. Whatever your reasons for contacting me, I am prepared to listen carefully, without judgment.
I am a licensed marriage and family therapist who is highly trained in providing psychotherapy and psychoanalysis to individual adults of all ages. Although my approach focuses on your present struggles, it recognizes the powerful impact of the past in shaping our present lives in ways of which we are often unaware. Together we will work to uncover and understand those forces that interfere with your emotional development. I am warm, compassionate and thoughtful in my approach to doing therapy, and very much value a collaborative working relationship, which is the core of the healing process.
