My Approach to Helping
My counseling style begins with a comfortable, safe space to explore and manage your challenges. I view creating a trusting, judgment-free relationship as the foundation of my work. A caring, collaborative relationship is a space for healing. The issues that spur people to seek therapy can be painful, whether due to a long struggle or an immediate crisis. Many people seek help with relationship challenges, worry, loneliness, and hopelessness. These difficulties provide powerful opportunities to work through struggle and enrich your life and create increased personal happiness.
More Info About My Practice
I draw upon my graduate and post-graduate training, utilizing therapy that relies on self-psychology, relational, psychodynamic, and family systems perspectives. I help both couples and individuals.
I completed a year of post-graduate training at the Institute for Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis and a two year training program from The Washington School of Psychiatry. Both of these programs gave me invaluable knowledge and tools in working with both individuals and couples. In addition, I recently completed an excellent one year training program from The Couples Institute working with couples from a developmental perspective.
