My Approach to Helping

I believe the most important element of effective psychotherapy is the genuine connection between the patient and therapist. My approach to therapy is interactive, supportive, and empathic. I see psychotherapy as a creative process and my patients as co-partners in this process of exploration and discovery.

Together, we will work in an atmosphere of acceptance and safety with the ultimate goal of greater self-awareness, emotional comfort, and relationship satisfaction. Therapy is a personal journey we will travel together bringing us both challenges and great rewards.

More Info About My Practice

In addition to my weekly or twice a week psychotherapy sessions, I also work along side local psychiatrists in the event that you and I feel that you can benefit from both talk therapy and medication treatment.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

My hope is that through psychotherapy, individuals can free themselves of the feeling that something is not right in their life, free themselves of intrusive thoughts and emotions, feel less restricted in their relationships, experience themselves as more creative and productive, enliven hope within them and overall relieve suffering.

What I Say to People Concerned about the Therapy Process

I know that it can be scary and anxiety-provoking to speak to a stranger about your personal life and intimate issues. Being aware of that, I work at your pace and comfort level to get you to where you want to be and where you can feel relief.

My View on the Nature of 'Disorders'

I believe that people are shaped and influenced by numerous experiences in their life. Rather than viewing or labeling people as "disordered" I tend to look at the ancestral traumas, early childhood relationships, lifestyle, cultural background, and societal conditioning that has led people to where they are today. That being said, I am aware that sometimes a diagnosis may help someone feel relief that they now "know" what is wrong with them and I believe these diagnoses can be helpful in guiding treatment and putting the patient at ease.
