My Approach to Helping
You can enter psychotherapy for a variety of reasons, all of which I can help you through - reduce emotional distress in order to regain a sense of fulfillment in life andor restore the ability to function in daily activities, improve relationship difficulties (with family, spouse, siblings, friends) caused by issues such as ineffective communication, gain control of unhealthy behaviors such as substance abuse or disordered eating, facilitate healing or promote well-being by nurturing the psychological, emotional, spiritual aspects of oneself, engage in a process of exploration to increase a sense of well-being and satisfaction with oneself, work, school andor relationships. I pride myself on using an eclectic approach that places my patients' needs first.
