Finding the right therapist can be overwhelming. It takes a lot of strength to begin the process of therapy and I applaud you for taking the first step. Entering into a therapeutic relationship is all about building trust. I provide a relaxed, non-judgmental, and compassionate atmosphere in which you can safely explore your thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. I truly want to get to know who you are and how we can work together to reach your goals, work on changing behaviors that are no longer suiting your needs, and modify unhealthy thinking styles.

To others, it seems like you have it all. But underneath lives a different story. Despite your outward success, you feel haunted sometimes by feelings of failure, conflict, self-doubt. At certain moments, a gnawing sense overcomes you, telling you: Something is not right. You've made changes but somehow still end up in the same unsatisfying patterns, repeating the same unhelpful behaviors -- feeling more and more alone. You want to understand your patterns and your past so you can create a different future. You want to learn to feel differently about yourself and how you relate with others. You want to find a different way.

The goal of therapy is to enable people to have richer and more satisfying lives. I match my approach to the person I'm seeing, offering both short-term, pragmatic, solution-oriented therapy, and longer-term treatment that involves complex historical material and ingrained self-defeating patterns. I think of therapy as an opportunity to learn better ways to live and thrive in the present. I use a combination of approaches including EMDR, AEDP, cognitive-behavioral therapy, and longer-terms work to change recurring patterns.
