"A decision to consider psychotherapy suggests you are experiencing difficulties in life which you hope a professional can help with. Perhaps you have noticed some repeating patterns that get in the way of love or work but do not understand why. I have practiced psychodynamic psychotherapy for more than thirty years. I work individually with adults and adolescents and have additional training in couples therapy. My style is responsive and interactive. I ascribe to the value of firm therapist-patient boundaries. This practice helps to facilitate a safe space which is essential if the work is to proceed."

"I am not your typical therapist, and strive to always create that emotional connection that allows us to work through any issue as a team. Most of my clients have already tried traditional therapy, and haven't been able to engage in one way or the other. Many of my clients haven't felt heard or understood, and it is a goal of mine to make therapy accessible for all. My belief as a therapist is that everyone can benefit- and should benefit from the relationship they have with their therapist. My clients believe in person centered care- and feedback goes both ways. I provide a trauma informed environment where the client gets to lead."
