"I believe that we all have the intrinsic ability to reach our full potential; that "self-actualization is growth-motivated rather than deficiency-motivated". It is our life experiences and toxic interactions with others that often prevent us from realizing this potential on our own. Although I was trained psychodynamically, my approach is integrative and driven by the needs of the individual client. I practice in a warm, relational, and collaborative manner. I have extensive experience working with children, adolescents, individual adults and couples. I help clients identify what is holding them back from effecting positive change. I help clients be more mindful and less fearful, thereby allowing them to attain more meaningful healthy relationships."

"In a society that expects us to be constantly producing, connecting, and consuming, it is hard to take stock of the inherent complexities in our everyday lives, whether we are children, teens or adults. I see my role as creating a space for pause, reflection and calibration. I pay attention to themes that emerge from discussions we have, tracing the influences of past experiences to present decisions and emotions, helping to connect interactions in the therapy room to problems that emerge outside the therapy room."

"My main goal with providing therapy is for you to become free from the fears and secrets that might have brought you in. Many of us feel tormented by our anxieties and catastrophic thinking, which inevitably interferes with our relationships and ability to be the person we wish. I work with children and adults who often feel impending doom or have had a major trauma, such as early abandonment or sexual abuse in their life. I also see couples who struggle with common goals and intimacy. I primarily use psychodynamic theory and play therapy (for children) in my work."

"I treat patients experiencing significant distress due to issues stemming from old familial wounds, from trauma, from painful life transitions, from ungrieved loss, from relational conflicts, from wrenching clashes between how one experiences oneself versus how society demands one be. This distress may have been labeled with stigmatizing diagnoses that might feel like a permanent stamp. I practice with the assumption that distress can resolve, that suffering can heal, that diagnoses are symptoms of the human condition, not indelible marks on one's being."
