"My practice is geared to assist individuals who, in their day to day lives, feel misunderstood, alienated or in other ways feel pressured to ascribe to interpersonal, social, familial or professional "norms" that are in contradiction to their unique personal needs or desires. It is important to honor each person's individual truth in order to support them in moving forward in an authentic and long-lasting way. Through supported exploration of their past experiences my clients discover how their unique personal history, not only informs how they feel today, but also what they need to change in order to feel better tomorrow."

"I became a clinical psychologist because I believe deeply in the reparative power of human relationships. In a number of senses, we become who we are through our interactions with others, and these patterns form the basis of how secure we feel with ourselves and others. I see the therapeutic relationship as a natural vehicle for healing relationship wounds and breaking repetitive self-injurious patterns that dovetail with interpersonal struggles. I invite clients to join me in a collaborative effort to observe and more deeply understand themselves, their relationship patterns, and their characteristic ways of thinking and feeling."
