My Approach to Helping

I offer client-centered psychotherapy designed to meet the needs of each individual client. I tailor my approach to my clients' needs, drawing from theoretical orientations such as cognitive-behavioral (which focuses on the development of skills), psychodynamic (which works to build insight), and relational approaches. A good fit between a therapist and her client is, along with a strong fit between the client and the treatment approach, is key to success. I believe psychotherapy works best when it addresses surface-level problems such as depression and anxiety, as well as those problems' underlying causes.

More Info About My Practice

I'm both a researcher and therapist, and have published several book chapters and articles on my specialties. My clients find me active, flexible, genuine, and attentive. I greatly enjoy my work, and am honored to support my clients through psychotherapy.
