I address a wide variety of difficulties and issues in my practice, including depression, anxiety, substance abuse, relationship difficulties and personality disorders.
I believe that therapy can not only alleviate specific hardships or teach more compassionate self-care, but that therapy can be emotionally transformative. I practice this belief with rigor, I believe my role is to provide a supportive, yet challenging environment that fosters emotional well-being, new insights, and change. I am an active participant in the therapy session. Together we will be able to set therapeutic goals and follow a clear path to achieve them. I hold emotions and affect in the highest regard and pay particular attention to non-verbal communications.

Psychotherapy provides a unique space through which a new relationship with oneself and others can be forged. Change in patterns of feeling and relating can be achieved through a process of exploration of and reflection on one's deeply held beliefs, convictions, and values, and past and present experiences. My approach is collaborative and informed by psychodynamic perspectives. I strive to facilitate meaning, understanding, and empowerment through close attention to the details of one's internal life and external context.
