I use a variety of clinical techniques uniquely suited to the suffering individual, which include psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, play therapy , family and couples therapy, and task-based therapies.
For me, psychotherapy is offering patience, understanding, insight, acceptance, compassion, relationship, and a secure base to persons suffering from burdens too heavy to carry alone. I compare myself to a container into which my patients pour their unbearable feelings. My task is to detoxify these feelings and make them easier to understand and tolerate. I help my patients to use healthy relationships with others to meet their emotional needs and the emotional needs of others. To establish and maintain healthy relationships, we work in session on understanding our own and others’ mental states (wishes, feelings, intentions) and how these are connected to how we behave toward each other. Relationships tend to work better when we are able to understand our own and others’ minds and how our minds influence how we behave toward each other.

Are you at your wits end with your child's behavior problems? Concerned about your child's depression? Struggling with depression or anxiety of your own? I can help. I specialize with ADHD, anxiety, self esteem,and infertility. I've been told that I'm warm, easy to talk to and "real". Still, I'm not afraid to call out my clients if I notice that they are engaging in unhealthy behaviors (in a gentle way of course). My clients tell me they appreciate this about me, as they don't just want someone who simply listens and nods.
