"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

"You’re overthinking things, second-guessing yourself all the time, worried you’re not keeping up with your friends/peers. You want to be your best self, but not sure exactly what that is or how to get there. You’re afraid to do the wrong things at times and do nothing as a result. When you and your partner talk about your relationship you mean well, but say the wrong things or it comes out the wrong way. Falling short on friendships, dating and your career and you’re not sure why. You need clarity and a way to move forward, but turning to friends or family doesn’t feel like the way to go."

"The decision to start psychotherapy is significant as it often means that you are suffering in some way or you've realized that what you've been doing is no longer working, and you are seeking change in your life. My approach is collaborative, warm, and challenging. I work psychodynamically, and also focus on the integration of the mind and body. I believe change occurs through the expression of emotions, addressing how the past impacts your current experiences, and exploring interpersonal relationships, including the relationship between the patient and therapist."

In some cases, you may be experiencing difficult moods -- anger or irritability, depression or anxiety, sadness, grief. Some other reasons my clients come to counseling include relationship troubles (e.g., romantic, family, friends), unresolved trauma, demanding life transitions, stubborn self-defeating patterns, and low self-esteem that is undermining their lives.

"Many of us enter adulthood with beliefs about love influenced by Hollywood depictions of romance. If we're fortunate, we've had more nuanced and realistic models, examples from adults who've shown us what it means to commit to another person and what love through a real lens looks like up close. The luckiest of us we saw the deepening and mellowing of love over time, love between people who have weathered conflicts, learned from the challenges they faced and and grown together. If so, we are likely to reach our adult years understanding what loves both asks of us and offers in reward. "
