"Clients come to me when they are dissatisfied with their lives and/or overwhelmed by a situation or stressor. I view therapy as a collaborative endeavor and work together with you to develop a treatment which incorporates your strengths, needs, and life's experiences. I also respect your wish to work on a specific area of concern short-term and/or to address a variety of complex issues over time. During the treatment, my clients report that they feel safe, supported, and challenged by me and that their lives are greatly enriched by the experience (see Healthgrades reviews by clients)."

"Often the circumstances that bring a person into therapy feel monumental and shameful. Other times the reasons for seeking therapy are unclear or hard to identify. Regardless of magnitude, life's struggles matter. They are real, and, because we are human, they are complicated. The relationship my patient and I build is the most important aspect determining the effectiveness of the therapy we do. When it feels restorative, shared, and caring, the relationship provides a uniquely valuable context in which we can take on struggles and uncertainties together, while we learn about the patient's individual needs, values, and difficulties."

"Years of research indicate the biggest predictor of therapeutic success is the relationship developed between the therapist and client. My clients joke that I am not your traditional therapist who sits back and nods. I see myself as a "change agent" whose style is interactive, warm and direct. My philosophy is that you should leave every session with the feeling that you have moved forward with your personal goals."

"We are all, I believe, a collection of parts ; some we are aware of, some we're not; some we like, some we don't; some enrich our relationships and some do just the opposite ! At times we can become hijacked by a part - saying things we don't mean to say, or muting ourselves so we don't say things we do mean. Ruptures in relationships or problems in the workplace can result. As we listen to our parts, with an open heart, healing can begin . My approach is described as warm, engaging , collaborative and, at times, playful."

Perhaps the Terrible Twos, Tween or Teen years have hit? Could it be that your child is struggling at school and you'd like to support him or her to feel better and have more success?

"There is nothing like being listened to and understood on a deep level, with genuine interest and acceptance. This is what I strive to offer in therapy or analysis, as we explore together your hopes and dreams, your losses and regrets, your longings and fears. Many people come to therapy to free themselves from self-defeating patterns and the legacy of past traumas, so they can be more truly themselves in relation to others and live with greater satisfaction and meaning. My analytic training enables me to work intensively, and I enjoy incorporating experiential techniques like journaling, psychodrama, and art."
