Life is not easy! Our world is complex and difficult to navigate. Many individuals, at some point in their lives, struggle with emotional difficulties. To address such difficulties, many theories about how psychotherapy should be conducted have been developed. I believe all theories of human behavior and functioning have something to contribute to the process of psychotherapy. I view psychotherapy as a collaborative relationship and process designed to help address life's difficulties, fostering personal growth, emotional well-being, and interpersonal satisfaction. I welcome the opportunity to support you as you navigate your world and reach for your full potential.

Well grounded in the interpersonal psychodynamic traditions, I work in both brief and longer-term models of therapy. I strive to provide clients with an opportunity to explore their inner selves, their relationships with others, and their innate striving for wholeness, creativity, and well-being.

I believe that psychotherapy is centered on the therapeutic relationship itself--which is designed to provide respect, emotional safety, support, confidentiality, and the gentle challenge to grow and thrive. Whatever your needs, I will honor your own engagement with the questions and help you explore possible answers.
