"My practice focuses on helping people develop healthy, meaningful, and satisfying lives and relationships. Sometimes negative thoughts and feelings - about ourselves, other people, or the world - get in the way of us being our best selves. Clinically, clients and I collaborate to reinforce adaptive behaviors, and understand your unique strengths so that you may live a meaningful and satisfying life and improve the quality of important relationships. In therapy, we focus on both problem-solving difficult situations, as well as developing an understanding of long-term patterns that contribute to your distress."

"I believe that our relationship is a partnership and that my role is to get a better understanding of how you approach life and how that approach either helps or hinders what you want. It is my experience in working with clients that all behaviors, thoughts and feelings are rational given past experience. Challenges in relationships and well-being are often developed when previously effective behaviors are no longer helpful in a new environment or under a new set of experiences. "
