Many adults seek therapy because of anxiety and depression symptoms. Others because of repetitive and troubling behaviors that get in the way of fulfilling intimate and professional relationships. Whether symptomatic or stuck in a relational pattern, the underlying cause for these difficulties is in the emotional life of the person. As a seasoned and highly trained therapist I provide an empathic environment which enables a shared journey into an individual's emotional life leading to the discovery and understanding of internal mental processes that are driving behavioral difficulties.

But this uneasiness does not exist in my office. I will not blankly stare at you as you delve into your personal history. You will feel heard and understood. During sessions, I engage and interact on an authentic, human level.
