My Approach to Helping
My style is non-judgemental and interactive. I offer an alliance, support and a safe place where you can develop new insights, mend broken places, dispel false negatives and create change. I don't make assumptions about what you need; I'm keenly interested in finding out who you are!
More Info About My Practice
I've helped my clients to address relationship problems, work stresses, parenting frustrations, depression, anxiety, anger, hopelessness and the effects of past trauma. Among others, I work with individuals facing tough life transitions, grappling with questions about identity and purpose, suffering grief or loss, struggling in their relationships, coping in the aftermath of experiencing or witnessing traumatic events.
How Psychotherapy Can Help
My style is active, empathic and informal. Drawing on my psychodynamic training, and integrating attachment, relational, cognitive behavioral and mindfulness perspectives, I strive to provide a therapy experience that is warm, reflective and collaborative, where you can feel safe to explore what's troubling you or holding you back, and develop more satisfying and effective ways to cope with difficult feelings, thoughts, situations and people. I work with my clients to help them expand awareness about themselves and heal old wounds, to identify and change dysfunctional patterns in their relationships and to increase understanding about the underlying beliefs that inform their moods and behaviors day-to-day.
