Integration and balance. These are the two guiding principles of my therapeutic approach. Sometimes people find themselves lost, astray, or simply curious about their current state in life. When we hit our lowest point, however, we may access the greatest change within ourselves. At some point in time, we may have lost our sense of self, while in other cases we may have struggled to form a coherent identity no matter how successful or secure we may appear. Nevertheless, we all have the potential to cultivate our resiliency and better understand who we are and who we wish to be.

Welcome to my practice. I aim to help my patients lead lives that are fulfilled and meaningful. I do so by collaboratively working to understand the internal restrictions that may be keeping them from taking full possession of their lives. In the process, painful symptoms are relieved. I have repeatedly seen that psychotherapy can nourish experiences of presence and vitality, deepen satisfaction in one’s relationships, and generate energy for creative, professional, and leisurely pursuits. If you seek self-understanding and relief from psychic suffering, I may be the therapist for you. I look forward to meeting you.

After 25 years of experience, I've learned that successful psychotherapy begins with a genuine collaborative relationship and connection with my clients - one formed in an environment of trust and safety, but with enough challenge to promote change. I work from a psychodynamic and relational perspective, actively engaging with you to explore issues including relationship and career difficulties, anxiety, depression, self -esteem, as well as addictive behaviors such as eating disorders. I integrate behavioral strategies (CBT), life coaching techniques, and mindfulness practices as needed. I want my clients to know themselves better, be able to explore new options, and learn the tools needed to change.

As you read my profile and wonder whether or not I'm a therapist you'll find easy to relate to and one who can help you accomplish what you want to achieve, perhaps you can also wonder how ready you might be to do what it takes to accomplish the changes you want to make. If you sincerely wish to solve a problem, connect more spontaneously and meaningfully with others (as well as with yourself) and/or bring about a fuller more satisfying use and embodiment of your innate capabilities, I can help you accomplish that transformation - sooner rather than later.

Therapeutic change requires a trusting relationship within which thoughts and feelings can be expressed and explored freely. As a seasoned therapist, I believe that the crises that bring us to the first therapy appointment can be the beginning of a process of self-exploration that leads to greater self-understanding and more effective problem solving. As we sit together, I help you reflect on what is going on in the present and how you got there. I pay close attention to patterns and themes that emerge and help you organize these so you can develop a narrative of your life that makes sense to you.
