About

One of the most important ingredients in successful therapy is a good therapeutic fit. My approach is to provide an empathic, warm and supportive environment, and work collaboratively to identify and make sense of your unique struggles and particular obstacles. I work with adolescents and adults and use both insight-oriented and skills-based approaches to find short and long-term solutions to intercept the patterns that are interfering with your personal growth. I also provide supervision and consultation to psychologists and psychology trainees.
I have post-doctoral training in Motivational Interviewing, psychodynamic psychotherapies, and Mentalization-Based Treatment. My range of experience allows me us use treatment modalities that best suit the individual in a collaborative approach.
I offer virtual sessions via a HIPPA compliant video platform. My physical office is located on the second floor of a stately old house with parking with off street parking. Please feel free to reach out.
