My orientation is a psychodynamic one, but I also integrate principles of CBT, DBT , and Brief Solution-Focused Therapy into problem solving and the cultivation of better self-management strategies where relevant and useful.
Strange as it may sound, my ideal client is someone who has been suffering in a profound way and, despite numerous past interactions with mental healthproviders, has yet to fully make sense of themself, let alone remove the obstacles to change and growth that have them stuck. Regarless of what diagnosis a person has been given before, my interest is in what is "behind it." How and why did a person develop the particular maladaptive strategies behind the symptoms comprising what we call a psychological "disorder?' What purpose do they serve, despite the suffering they engender? This is the "need to know" stuff of real change...

Through the use of DBT , CBT and the Psychobiological Approach to Couples Therapy(PACT), I work collaboratively with clients to better understand their thoughts, feelings, and behaviors and to help them increase self awareness.
I approach my clinical work with an emphasis on relationships, attachment and the importance of multi-cultural and relational approaches. I understand the value of knowing where a client comes from and where they have been in order to collaboratively develop interventions and approaches that are safe, effective and familiar. I believe that in order to truly help clients they, and I, must understand the context in which they live and learn and that the work we do in the clinical room must be transferable to their everyday life. Many of my clients are seeking guidance on how to engage in and maintain healthy relationships.
