Announcement icon Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, I am exclusively available for telehealth appointments. With so many unknowns, anxiety is expected. Call now.
Are you struggling in your relationships with others, or with how you view yourself? Do you have problems at work, or are you grappling with a loss? Many times we may feel unhappy, or bland but are not clear about the causes and what we can do. Personal growth is a lifelong process, and at times, choosing to embark in a psychotherapeutic relationship can help. We all have the capacity to better understand ourselves and improve our lives. In our work together, you would begin to understand the relationship you have with yourself and how you navigate other relationships.
I have found following your lead is of utmost importance. I work with a warm and nonjudgmental style and have worked with clients of diverse ethnic, cultural, gender, and sexual orientation backgrounds. I offer insight oriented psychodynamic and psychoanalytic psychotherapy, and use a strengths based perspective with clients.
I work with adults, adolescents, and families. Parenting and growing up can be tough, and no amount of training can prepare us for all of its challenges. Asking for help can be difficult, but is the first step towards an improved life.
