I work with adolescents,adults, and couples using the Family Systems approach by considering individual relationships between family members in the context of the whole. This means that I take into account my clients' emotional and relational history, in addition to observing present interactions. This collaboration of information from both the past and present is important in helping each person realize that he/she contributes to the way his/her life functions. It is my goal to help individuals recognize the impact of their unique roles in the family so that they may improve the quality of their interpersonal relationships.

My goal for every individual, couple, or family I work with is not just to solve problems but to achieve actual long-term happiness. I do a developmental, growth-oriented style of therapy, best suited to intelligent adults, couples, or families interested in permanent solutions to emotional difficulties such as depression, inter-personal conflict, loneliness, lack of meaning, insecurity, panic, or anger. Therapy as I practice it will change how you understand yourself and other people, how you react to life events, and most important of all, how you feel on a day-to-day basis.
