My Approach to Helping
I consider myself to be empathic and a great listener.Your concerns truly matter to me, and I find it important to make sure that our work reflects your important goals.
I am an active therapist. I give a lot of feedback but am very careful not to impose my values or opinions. On the contrary, I strive to help you come up with your own answers and to develop the confidence to make your own choices and decisions.
I am proud to integrate the principles of Emotionally Focused Therapy in my work with couples.
More Info About My Practice
I consider it a privilege to be part of a person's decision to improve his or her life. Through individual and couple's therapy, I help people uncover patterns that may be holding them back. I have seen my approach effectively provide relief and restore hope to those who are struggling with depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, addiction, grief and life transition relationship conflicts. Most often, I work with adolescents and adults as they face issues relating to family challenges, sexuality, infidelity, divorce, remarriage and blended family issues. I believe that people can reach their full potential when they forge a powerful therapeutic relationship in a safe, empathic and confidential environment. I tailor my interventions to meet the client's goals. I received my formal education at Cornell and Columbia Universities and went for post-graduate training at the Ackerman Institue for Family Therapy. although my formal training was psychoanalytic, my practice style has evolved into an active, cognitive-behavioral intervention.
