About My Clients

I work with a diverse range of clients of all ages, cultural backgrounds and sexual orientations. I treat individuals suffering with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, life transitions, lack of self esteem and motivation, developmental trauma, OCD and grief. I have extensive experience helping couples and families with relational conflict and disconnection.

My Background and Approach

I have been trained in a variety of evidence-based therapeutic modalities. My primary theoretical orientation is psychodynamic and relational, which means that I often pay special attention to how interpersonal dynamics may be relevant in your symptoms and struggles, and how interpersonal experiences throughout your life may contribute to your current pattern of relating. Through developing insight, we wil work together to determine which aspects of these patterns are working for you and which aspects are not. These insights can be a catalyst to significant positive life changes. During our work together I frequently incorporate cognitive behavioral techniques to help you identify unhelpful thinking styles and behavior patterns contributing to your symptoms and struggles. Through this process we will actively challenge and replace maladaptive thoughts and beliefs with more realistic and helpful alternatives, which will assist you in rediscovering your power and reclaiming your life

My Personal Beliefs and Interests

My practice is dedicated to listening carefully to my clients' concerns and offering insight with compassion and understanding. I provide a warm, empathetic and non-judgmental space. I am not the kind of therapist that sits passively and nods. I listen intently to what you have to say and help you make sense of what life has thrown at you. I am active, honest and real. My clients can count on me for an authentic relationship. My goal is to provide you with the experience of working through your challenges with the support, understanding, and perspective of another person who has your best interest at heart as you find your own answers.
