"Psychotherapy provides a unique space through which a new relationship with oneself and others can be forged. Change in patterns of feeling and relating can be achieved through a process of exploration of and reflection on one's deeply held beliefs, convictions, and values, and past and present experiences. My approach is collaborative and informed by psychodynamic perspectives. I strive to facilitate meaning, understanding, and empowerment through close attention to the details of one's internal life and external context. Many of the individuals I work with enter psychotherapy to work through depression and anxiety related to struggles with identity, relationships, loss, trauma, and migration."

"Navigating your way through the ups and downs of life isn't always easy but can be done better with some help along the way. I take a holistic approach to each person to help you deal with your challenges and worries, your dreams and nightmares, and your health and wellbeing in both your relationships with yourself and with others. Sometimes changes in personalities and expressions of oneself can seem confusing as we experience the many emotions in life and the reactions they bring as we work on healing the traumas within ourselves and in our relationships with others at home, at work, and in our families, schools and communities."

"My work is designed to help people's efforts in unblocking aspects of themselves keeping them from fulfillment and satisfaction, professionally and personally. I also try to uncover those "automatic assumptions" that people feel, but are erroneous, generating behavior that is negative and self-destructive. If you feel badly about yourself, it distorts your behavior, which then effects how others see you. People are often much too hard on themselves, and assume others are as critical. I also try to help people evaluate their relationships, and clarify their's and the other's role in conflicts."

While I lean toward the object relations and intersubjectivist schools, it means I'm listening to you and thinking about you not simply through these (or other) theoretical lenses, but as the person you are and the situation you're in.
