"The unique experiences, expectations, and traits of each person require an individualized approach to psychotherapy. As I work with an individual my approach may include elements of modern psychoanalysis, cognitive behavior therapy, family therapy, and client centered counseling. I utilize recent research in neuro-psychology to inform the various theories of psychotherapy. Faculty members, students, and creative individuals, as well as foreign nationals and first and second generation Americans are groups with whom I have significant interest and experience. A special interest of mine is facilitating the growth of individuals who want to change long term problems with self-esteem, interpersonal relationships, anxiety and depression."

"It's my belief to "Keep it simple." Life is stressful enough. Balancing work, family, social life, friends, and relationships can be overwhelming at times. I practice from a harm reduction theoretical orientation. It combines person-centered (respect for autonomy) with systemic therapy (a critical look at culture and attachments). By identifying wants and needs, I can assist clients with locating triggers and establishing healthy coping skills to alleviate any mental, emotional, or physical stress. I have worked particularly with clients dealing with personality disorders, relationship issues, codependency, and adjustment concerns."

"Therapy, to me, is about the search for living as our best selves. This entails a paradoxical dance of change and acceptance. It's this process that I so appreciate navigating together with my clients. Some people reach out to a therapist because of challenging life-adjustment situations. Others are pushed into therapy by family, friends, or employers when they are in highly distressing situations. Either way, change is possible when we're willing to show up just a little bit."
