About My Clients


My Background and Approach

Research has shown that the single most important aspect of a successful psychotherapy is the quality of my relationship with you, more so than any particular theory. I have been trained to pay close attention to this dynamic and I encourage my patients to talk to me about it. What our relationship feels like in the present can be a fundamental key to understanding yourself. I expect people to come to me with a wide variety of complaints, concerns, confusions…or just a general feeling of dis-ease. I have yet to meet someone who, with time and introspection, doesn’t come away realizing that the things they held themselves so harshly responsible for are explainable given their life experiences and, therefore, are deserving of compassion. However, simultaneously, many of these things need to be confronted and challenged. Holding those two seemingly disparate aspects of therapy requires skill. I both support and challenge you.
