"My aim in psychotherapy is to meet you where you are. I work with many difficulties, including anxiety, trauma, depression, relationship problems, and ADHD, but I don't let these define you as an individual or as a couple. Non-judgment and taking a strengths perspective are fundamental components of my work. There are many skills and tools I can teach you, though perhaps most important of all is looking together at how you think about yourself and your struggle. My goal is to help you understand your difficulties in a new way so you can heal and experience enduring well being."

"I believe one of the first steps in therapy is to articulate clear goals so that we can most effectively address your specific needs and struggles. We will do this by productively exploring the dynamic terrain of your relationships - to your emotions, thoughts, behavior, and also to others. This is done in a non-judgmental, safe and creative environment. Eventually, this productive and flexible environment which we foster together, can replace less effective ways of relating to your self as well as to others in the different arenas of your life."

"As a psychologist I evaluate and treat individuals who seek help for depression, anxiety, life dissatisfaction (from relationships and work stress), relational trauma (e.g. childhood abuse and emotional neglect) and addiction/compulsive behaviors that may co-occur with depression, anxiety or trauma/PTSD. Of note, you do not have to be in crisis to be in therapy; I often work with individuals who are interested in personal growth, long-term recovery issues, regaining meaning and passion after loss and sometimes stopping distressing interpersonal patterns. Treatment is generally trauma-informed and phase-oriented, integrating body-mind interventions and neurobiology. Please visit my website for details,"

"I think of therapy as like sanctuary - a place where there aren't distractions, where there is an opportunity to pay attention to what is important, in a spirit of kindness. Because of this, many individuals and couples find it to be enjoyable, and very relieving. Of course, since people do therapy to work on painful things, therapy itself isn't always easy. But at least things can be approached thoughtfully and skillfully, in a safe context, and this itself brings great benefits."

"Therapy can be a source of tremendous relief and gratification. Unhappiness and anxiety that feel unbearable can lessen and disappear when you have someone who can help you understand the reasons for your suffering. A good therapist can also help you more easily get your mind off upsetting thoughts that preoccupy you. Or if you find yourself acting in self-defeating ways, studying it with a therapist can be of enormous help. Ideally, you will leave an initial consultation with a new way of thinking about the problem that brought you in."
