My Approach to Helping
Therapy can be a leap of faith, a hopeful search for relief from uncomfortable or unmanageable states, or a pursuit for deeper insight and meaning, sometimes both. Whether temporary, or longer term those first steps can at times be the most tentative, however quite rewarding once taken. My foundational training in the Psychodynamic, Depth and Humanistic traditions merged with innovative and evidence based advancements in attachment theory, neuroscience and the body’s stress response, have led me to a strengths based, integrative and client centered approach whereby each treatment plan is tailored appropriately to the unique needs of each client. With experience in Residential Inpatient, Intensive Outpatient and private practice, I view my work as a collaboration with the client that honors the person and their process working towards healthy relationships – with Self, others and their environment. My style has been described as calm, insightful and reflective. I work with teens and adults, and have experience with the unique challenges faced by clients who work in the motion picture industry.
