My Approach to Helping

Our relationships with others and ourselves are the most important dynamic in our lives. When our relationships are working we feel energized and alive. When they are not we can feel dull, hopeless and overwhelmed.

My area of expertise is working with individuals and couples who have reached a point where they feel their lives and relationships are no longer working. Often these feelings stem from unresolved conflicts or recurring patterns that are destructive and painful.

I work within the framework of Object Relations Theory (ORT), Relational Psychotherapy and Family Systems Theory.

These frameworks emphasize self examination and insight, bringing unconscious processes into conscious awareness while promoting deeper self knowledge and the resolution of inner conflicts and unhappiness.

My approach to treatment emphasizes that one of our most basic human needs is to be in relationship with others. I focus on my client's interactions with others, as well as how they think and feel about themselves. I assist them in exploring how their interpersonal relationships have impacted their emotional development, as well as how their previous relational experiences are affecting their current relationships.

Using a family systems approach we explore together how each member of the family impacts and is impacted by other family members and how these interactions have affected and shaped the patient's life.

What I Love about Being a Psychotherapist

I really enjoy working with others and helping them to find greater joy in their life and work.
I have been helped personally by working with a skilled psychotherapist and know how life changing the work can be. I want to offer that experience to others and I work very hard to stay current in my knowledge and understanding of how people think and what will help them make the changes they desire.
I created my office space to be a safe, inviting and comfortable place where trust can flourish and together we can find ways to help you attain your goals.
