Are you working to overcome specific issues and trying to achieve something good for you? I can help you get to the clearing in the centre of that forest. We will likely have to go tree by tree. You’re the one in the forest, doing the travelling - it's your journey, and it’s my job to watch and listen for information about which tree is blocking your path, which roots are getting your feet tangled up - my job to enable your sharing of what’s conscious and your exploration of what’s not, to keep you in connection with your growing edge, helping you to gain insight, and walking alongside you on your journey towards your goal.
My approach revolves around a unique modality known as ISTDP (Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy), and my hope is to explore with you whether there might be another way to deal with your problems, one that might leave you able to respond to whatever comes up in your life with a more adaptive, resilient, and compassionate sense of your own self.
I’m dedicated to my own ongoing journey. I’m equally dedicated to improving my clinical ability as a therapist and thus my utility to you. In our work together I’ll take an active stance and be as real with you as I humanly can. I’ll invite you to do the same, so that together we can collaborate and find a way to resolve whatever is troubling you.

I work using a modality known as ISTDP (Intensive Short Term Dynamic Psychotherapy). In your sessions I will focus upon you with utmost care, looking for patterns in the ways in which you relate to others, and perhaps more importantly, how you relate to yourself, to see where the difficulties you are experiencing come from, and if there might be another way for you to approach and respond to them.
