My Approach to Helping

I am empathic, nonjudgmental and creative. I use a gentle sense of humor and a supportive, caring style to challenge my clients to achieve the goals they set for themselves. I am flexible, employing whatever therapeutic model fits the needs of my client.

Specific Issue(s) I'm Skilled at Helping With

Individual Psychotherapy:

There are times when we need someone to listen deeply, point out patterns and connections with objectivity, and support us unconditionally in discovering our true selves. We may need that person to help us connect with our emotional compass, our intuition. A therapist can help you understand yourself, your past relationship experiences and your experience encountering the world around you so you can find and form the kind of relationships you always knew you wanted. I am dedicated to supporting you in achieving your goals.

Couples Psychotherapy:

Sometimes we feel lost, angry, or sad about our romantic relationships. Working with a therapist can help couples learn how to navigate tricky emotional struggles. Among other useful models, I now use Gottman Method Couples Therapy in my couples work. This method is based on extensive research on what tools "master couples" use to have successful relationships. I am fascinated by helping couples turn to each other again.
