My Approach to Helping

I focus on supporting clients in identifying their sources of resiliency through an exploration of strengths and through the development of a safe and collaborative relationship. I strive to build a relationship based on honesty, compassion, and hope. I use a humanistic style in my therapeutic approach, rooted in the belief that we are more alike than different and through courage and honest self-reflection, personal evolution and healing can occur.

I specialize in treating individuals who suffer from symptoms of trauma. I use a combination of modalities including body-based therapy, to alleviate psychosomatic symptoms, to cognitive-behavioral focused techniques which aim to develop new thinking patterns and coping skills. I also have extensive experience in couples, family and group therapy.

Deciding to pursue therapy can be a very difficult decision. Finding a therapist that you feel is the right fit for you is a critical part of the therapeutic process. In the event you would like to learn more about my approach, please reach out for a free initial consultation.
