I am an integrative psychotherapist with an extensive background in working with mood disorders, dual diagnoses, prosocial behavior management and stress reduction. My approach is to integrate elements of several schools of therapy to address the emotional, behavioral, psychological, cognitive and spiritual dimensions of my clients. This strength-based approach allows me to design a therapeutic strategy for each client based on their specific areas of concern."

I enjoy working with people from diverse cultural and ethnic backgrounds and have always preferred having a "general practice" which allows addressing a wide range of personal concerns. While each individual requires a unique approach; the transformative power of therapy is rooted in the trusting relationship that evolves between you & I. It's the alliance between us which helps you become the person you aspire to be. The work is serious but also allows for having a bit of fun while seeking the most gratifying life to foster a sense of fulfilling purpose for yourself. "

"Therapy provides an opportunity to slow down amidst the rapid paces of our lives and look around to explore the ways we cope with difficulty. Ultimately, this teaches us more about who we truly are. Pain is inevitable in our lives, but it can function as a window into our truer, deeper selves. Contacting and nurturing the parts of ourselves that have been hurt, shamed, or neglected helps us to more fully embody our unique selves and find freedom from the constraints of our suffering."

"Your potential is much greater than you even think. But psychological burdens -- such as depression, loneliness, guilt, and anxiety -- rob you of the freedom to feel, act, and choose. Self-protective strategies left over from childhood, ingrained but faulty ideas, and an absence of self-acceptance make life very, very difficult. How we work together will depend on what you want and what you need. Cognitive-behavioral techniques can be very valuable. But for many people, the path includes uncovering buried emotions, giving the "true self" a chance to emerge. Our closeness gives you the courage you'll need."
