I believe everyone has the capacity and desire for individual growth. Whether an individual has come from a troubled background or a supportive family environment, there is always room for increased personal awareness and development. I believe in providing a very supportive environment, both physically and emotionally. I am caring, empathetic, and direct in my approach to couples and to individuals. I primarily use psychodynamic therapy but am familiar with many other models. I use what will work! In my work with the gifted and creative, I base my approach on Dabrowski's Theory of Positive Disintegration.
