Choosing a therapist can be a daunting task, often undertaken at a time when one is feeling less than powerful. I offer a free phone consultation to potential clients, during which we'll get to know a little bit about each other, and I can answer any questions about the therapeutic process, including scheduling and fees. In my practice, I make use of a variety of theoretical frameworks to help understand and address your symptoms. I employ elements of cognitive behavioral, dialectical behavioral, psychodynamic, art and music therapies, but my focus is always on you as a whole person, understood in the context of your environment.

I provide therapy to adults with a wide variety of issues. I use a combination of psychoanalytic, cognitive, and hypnotherapy techniques. One or all of these techniques might be right for you at any given time during the course of treatment. I believe that a strong therapeutic alliance is of utmost importance. I provide a safe atmosphere of non-judgment and empathy. My approach is warm, supportive, and collaborative. I enjoy helping individuals utilize their personal creativity to manage emotions and take on life's challenges.

You’ve always managed to maintain control but life just became overwhelming and your usual coping techniques aren’t working. Not knowing what else to do, you find yourself doing more of the same. When working long hours does nothing to soothe your fear that you are an imposter, you work more. When one glass of wine fails to take the edge off your work stress, your pour yourself another. Now, others are starting to notice you don't have your act perfectly together and your frustration with yourself has built itself into a litany of self-criticism.

Therapy isn't education, and it's not advice-giving. Because people are different, elements of therapy require different healing for different people. It's the ability to speak your mind safely to someone who listens, listens intelligently, and cares is important. I believe a successful counseling experience depends on the therapist ability to understand and respect the unique concerns, background, and context of each patient. I am committed to achieving such an understanding in every counseling relationship.
