I work from a relational model having completed a three year post graduate program with the Institute of Contemporary Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis. I realize the importance of the therapeutic relationship and encourage clients to choose a therapist that they feel safe and understood by but also challenged by during the session. For the initial session, I offer 50% off of my rate to allow for people to determine if I am able to provide that type of treatment for them."

"There are times when things are not going as well as we'd like in our family, social or work relationships. You may feel alone, depressed, anxious, or have conflict or discomfort with those you care about. In my psychotherapy practice I help couples and individuals restore their sense of well being and connection. People learn how to be more present and intentional about their interactions and decisions, in accordance with what is most important to them. Partners learn to be safely available to each other through a dialogue process that teaches more effective listening, deeper understanding and empathy."
