"A good therapy experience requires a safe, empathic environment which promotes self-exploration and growth. My style is interactive, balancing detailed inquiry while allowing room for full expression of the client's concerns. I question assumptions, share my observations of automatic patterns in thinking, feeling and relating to others and draw attention to experience that is being avoided. In my experience this is where sources of depression, anxiety and problems in living are found. Exploring these patterns allows us to reevaluate their present usefulness and adopt new approaches, resulting in greater freedom and flexibility in one's life."

""At its best, psychotherapy alleviates suffering and makes possible a richer, more meaningful life. I work with patients by drawing on a number of different perspectives. In particular, I use a psychoanalytic approach to address repetitive patterns and historical forces that prevent people from creating the life they want to live. I integrate behavioral interventions when appropriate to confront specific problems and to help people develop a sense of competency, control, and agency.""

If you uncover the source of most problems in living, childhood relationships and the resulting psychological fallout are at the root. Recognizing you are struggling with something is the beginning step in a courageous journey towards changing it. Without judgment, I will support you on that journey as you learn to understand the origins of your problems, and how to make changes for greater life satisfaction.
