"Feeling chronic negative emotions such as sadness, anger, anxiety, or loneliness is often a sign that something in our relationships has gone awry. By the time we attend psychotherapy, the task of altering our relationships may feel difficult or impossible to navigate alone. As a psychodynamic therapist, I am interested in how your early relationships impact your personality, worldview, attachment, perceptions, and coping mechanisms. Through compassion, challenge and sometimes humor, I aim to help my patients gain insight, learn new ways of relating, and implement change in order to heal, grow and flourish."

"Effective social skills therapy groups can help overcome past experiences of social frustration and initiate an optimistic identity as a socially valuable person. I am a well-known leader of these groups with widespread experience in school, hospital and clinic settings. I model a child- centered, strengths-based approach which creates the trust necessary for practicing desirable behaviors and correcting mistakes. The focus is on helping youth gain the confidence, knowledge and skills to make and keep friends. Priorities include two-way conversation, taking turns, reading social cues, handling teasing, giving compliments, showing empathy, managing emotions, and positive self-talk."
