Welcome! Seeking counseling is a healthy start to making, accepting and striving for change. Wellness consists of having options to work through. Goals are important to set yet it can be confusing in terms of how to set a path forward. My counseling services are customized to your vision of becoming a better you. The initial visit is free so we can take the time to outline a blueprint of your needs. No internal goal is superficial it all matters in terms of improving the quality of your life.

Welcome to my practice. I specialize in Intensive Short-Term Dynamic Psychotherapy (IS-TDP). IS-TDP is based on findings from neuroscience, physiology, attachment studies, mindfulness and psychodynamic theory. This is an effective and well researched technique that is useful in addressing problems and difficulties rapidly and actively. Using this method we can get below the surface and address more than the symptoms but rather the cause. The results, typically, are broad in scope with health benefits in multiple areas. Of note, this method is effective in addressing physical symptoms unexplained by medical examination.
