Do you keep finding yourself in the same place over and over? It could be a type of relationship, a job, a conversation, a feeling, or a behavior. Many of us have unfinished business with our past. As a result, we sometimes get stuck in unconscious patterns, and we miss opportunities for connection, freedom, and joy. Therapy can help you regain your authentic connection to yourself, others, and the world.

My approach is based in psychodynamic psychotherapy. This means that we collaborate toward understanding and resolving your concerns not only in the present moment, but also with attention to their origin and your future health and happiness. To do this, I integrate numerous modalities, as I consider myself an eclectic therapist. Clients I work best with like a direct approach, with a twist of humor.
