I approach therapy with the understanding that our mind and body are not separated but aspects of a unified whole. Our emotions and life history are held and manifest in the body and change begins when we acknowledge and work with our full being. Through a process that goes beyond talk, I help my clients bring attention to how their concerns effect how they breathe, feel, move, think and express themselves, as I support them in gradually exploring the underlying emotional terrain.

I work with children, adolescents and adults in individual, couple, and family psychotherapy. Through a collaborative process, I help patients discover connections between problematic patterns of thinking and relating, and the ongoing challenges they face. These connections – between thoughts and feelings, past and present, internal experience and external situations – can help a person think in new ways, generating possibilities for growth and change.

To do this, I work to understand the internal restrictions that may be keeping them from taking full possession of their own lives. In the process, painful symptoms are relieved. My clinical experience has repeatedly shown me that psychotherapy can help one become kinder to oneself, a better parent, a more sensitive partner, and more deeply gratified in one's career and pastimes.

My focus in working with patients is for them to feel deeply understood by me and to feel safe in exploring their issues, whatever they might be. This understanding is best accomplished, in my mind, through the use of empathy. What is it like for you to be you? For me, the relationship between patient and therapist must point in the direction of healing oneself and through oneself, others. I fundamentally believe, like others before me, that the patient is the one who guides the process. Similarly, it is the patient who is my best teacher.

My approach to therapy is integrative, drawing from a variety of clinical theory, techniques, and empirical research ranging from psychoanalysis to cognitive behavioral therapy, tailoring the treatment to meet the unique needs of the individual. Ultimately, I believe, and research shows, that the effectiveness of therapy across approaches depends on the quality of the relationship. That is, it has to be “a good fit” and occur in the context of a safe, supportive, compassionate and confidential environment.
