I see my patients first and foremost in a humanistic way as people, not simply as patients or their diagnoses. As such, I offer patients comprehensive treatment, not just from a neurobiological perspective, but also a from a humanistic one. I approach my patients with compassion, respect and a commitment to confidentiality. Some of the biggest obstacles to attainting self-awareness and self-acceptance are deeply buried feelings of guilt and shame. Working with a psychotherapist you trust, who is curious, empathic and understanding can help you expand your capacity for self-curiosity, self-awareness and self-acceptance, which in turn can help you expand your capacity to: •examine, understand & change problematic patterns in your life; •make choices freely & actively, instead of reactively; •ultimately lead a more thoughtful, authentic & fulfilling life.

I will listen carefully to evaluate your problems and distress, your values and strengths. Then collaborate with and support you in psychotherapy. Besides decreasing distress and supporting you through difficult times, psychotherapy can help you to discover and understand how some automatic reactions of your mind, that you may not have been aware of, work. These can lead to problematic repetitive patterns, difficult or disrupted relationships, not working to your potential, and psychiatric symptoms. Changing these can improve your coping and interpersonal skills, allow you more freedom of choice and action, and to be more effective
