"Life can be challenging and counseling can help you make sense of things that feel confusing, out of control, or just plain uncomfortable. I will see you as the unique individual you are and help you find ways to feel better and more in charge of your life and to maximize resources and support. I will respect the ways you want to go about change and help you navigate what has been the "comfortable norm" and what can be felt as the "uncomfortable new." My approach is collaborative, compassionate, and direct."

"I work with children, adolescents, and adults who are navigating issues such as depression, anxiety, anger, substance abuse, transitions, and day-to-day life stress. From a psychodynamic lens, I create a supportive environment for my clients based on trust and connection. Growth becomes possible when we have the opportunity to reflect and gain insight in a non-judgmental setting. From this space we can begin to integrate aspects of ourselves that have been neglected due to challenging or painful experiences."

"People come to talk to me to understand the emotional and psychological concerns that are interfering with living a satisfying life. Most of my clients are very productive and goal driven in their professional and personal lives and find that although very successful, their inner emotional sense of self may be suffering. By seeking a psychodynamic psychotherapist, my clients tend to be curious about how to enrich their lives by getting to know themselves more deeply."

"Each of us has a story. Stories shape our behaviors, thoughts and emotions, and influence how we form relationships, feel about life and ourselves. Sometimes, we hide parts of our stories to feel safe and lessen hurt. Over time, these missing parts can take root and cause suffering, leaving us drained, anxious, angry, depressed or just empty. I believe therapy is an opportunity to discover and make use of the healing power of our stories. Unearthing and reclaiming lost parts dissolves them of their power over us, alleviates our suffering and allows us to live a happier, more authentic life."

In order to accomplish this many people need to resolve the inhibitions that betray their strengths. Because each person is unique, there can be no set formula for helping people find solutions and pursue their goals. As a therapist I focus on the particular circumstances presented, and help construct personalized goals by carefully and non-judgmentally attending to what is being presented and responding in a direct, supportive, and interactive manner, always from an empathic perspective."
