My Approach to Helping

Whether you are looking for help to manage painful emotions, improve your relationships, or simply understand yourself in a deeper way, you are looking to improve your well-being. I am passionate about helping people connect with their inner strengths and improve their quality of life. My style is warm and empathic, interactive, and deeply grounded in a strength-based perspective.
I draw from Psychodynamic Theory, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), the practice of Mindfulness, and Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT). As a Certified Health Coach, I can help you develop strategies to achieve your health and wellness goals.I approach each session with compassion, respect, and gratitude because I believe it is an honor to be a part of such an important journey. Please contact me for a free phone consultation so that we can determine if I might be a good fit for you.

How Psychotherapy Can Help

By providing a safe and nurturing relationship, people start to see themselves in a more compassionate and accurate light and process painful emotions and experiences. Often, those struggling with emotional pain, trauma, and relationship issues have distorted views of the self which hinder their growth and connections with others. In addition, I am able to help people identify their harmful and self-defeating patterns and replace them with healthier and more effective ways of coping.
