I am an empathic, insightful and down-to-earth therapist experienced in assisting and supporting individuals and couples experiencing problems associated with Mood, Anxiety, Relationships, Life Changes and Substance Abuse. I offer a holistic approach to psychotherapy; assisting my clients' in reducing symptoms related to their problems, prevention of more serious problems, and resolution of conflicts. I elicit my clients' strengths and foster an environment of growth and awareness.

My approach to psychotherapy is based on the Psychosocial Model. The theoretic underpinnings include Freudian personality theory, ego psychology, systems theory, role theory, cognitive and behavioral theory, crisis intervention and existential psychology. I use biofeedback when indicated. The presenting problem/s will inform the therapeutic approach and interventions for desired outcomes.

Looking for couples counseling? The Gottman method is an effective and practical approach. I have completed Level 2: Couples Therapy with the Gottman Institute, an empirically based approach to working with couples. This method works to improve communication, decrease conflict, enhance friendship and explore shared goals and rituals.
