My Approach to Helping

Relationships are the cornerstone of our psychological world. The way we relate to others constructs our external world, which then interacts with and defines our internal world. Internal and external relationships are inextricably linked, and our interactions with others offer valuable insights into ourselves. The reverse is also true. Shifts in one relationship inevitably creates a shift in others.

Psychotherapy emphasizes the value of examining and processing our psychological struggles so better integrate our intellectual selves with our emotional selves. This experience offers a chance at change and growth.

Therapy is a collaborative process, where you are the expert on yourself and I am the expert on the mind. Together we'll work to understand your struggles, while moving beyond old and unproductive patterns. Together we'll create space for honest expression and greater flow in your life.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

In my view, the ultimate purpose of psychotherapy is to have a deeper engagement with yourself and the world. Psychotherapy can allow you to more fully integrate aspects of yourself, which in turn gives you a greater capacity to hold, tolerate, and engage with a greater amount of experiences. In essence, psychotherapy can help you to have greater flexibility and options in your life.
