My Approach to Helping

Perhaps you are doubting your abilities and self-worth; or maybe you are facing challenging situations and uncomfortable changes. You might be feeling "stuck", confused and uncertain as to how to move on from past experiences or how to manage worries about the future. Let us work together in identifying and accepting your true self and developing the skills to handle life's stressors. Let us work towards embracing every day in a meaningful way.

I have experiences helping clients on anxiety and mood disorders, substance abuse, depression, low self-esteem and interpersonal difficulties. While I work closely with adults, children and adolescents from all walks of life, I specialize in working with artists, performers and creative individuals (actors, writers, dancers, visual artists and more). Please look at my book Counseling for Artists, Performers, and Other Creative Individuals: A Guide for Clinicians to find out about my work with this population.

My View on the Purpose of Psychotherapy

The purpose of psychotherapy is for the client to rediscover himself/herself, to learn to accept and to love their true self. Psychotherapy is a chance to develop self-awareness and to gain an understanding on how we relate to others. In addition, it's an opportunity to express and heal from parts of ourselves we may keep hidden, thoughts and feelings we may be ashamed of and behaviors that somehow end up harming us.
