About

At times, we struggle through life’s challenges, perhaps feeling stuck or unsure of the path forward. Maybe you’re going through a stressful transition, burdened by emotional pain, or just have an inkling that life isn’t going “right.” Psychotherapy can help you navigate life’s difficulties and cope more effectively. My focus is to understand your concerns, help you consider underlying causes, work on making better choices and increase your sense of control over unwanted behaviors and thoughts. Regardless of the intensity, severity, and frequency of your concerns, nothing is too small or too big to benefit from psychotherapy.
I aim to create an open, supportive environment where clients feel comfortable and not judged. My style is warm, compassionate and straightforward. I believe being an active collaborator is also important for the therapeutic process. Together we can make sense of your challenges and develop a toolbox of techniques to use when confronted by them.
I use a variety of interventions, from psychodynamic to humanistic to cognitive behavioral therapy, to help reduce self-defeating behaviors, while developing new ways to perceive life events, interact in the world and have healthier relationships. I believe change is possible for everyone and I'd very much enjoy learning about and working with you.
