"My approach to psychotherapy is collaborative, and is influenced by the specific needs of each individual. My style is relational and incorporates elements of both psychodynamic (insight oriented) and cognitive behavioral therapy (skill building), as well as mindfulness. In my experience, I have found that long lasting effects come from working with and addressing both the current symptoms of distress as well as the underlying factors that have caused these feelings. I believe that the therapeutic relationship is central, and value establishing a strong connection and working together in order to achieve personal changes."

"I am a clinical psychologist with over 25 years of experience in psychotherapy and psychoanalysis. My practice is directed toward individuals who have problems with self-esteem, with relationships, and/or with achieving work satisfaction. Often people are depressed and anxious, and unhappy with their lives, yet unable to effect change. For many, even knowing what it is they may desire is difficult and confusing. Sometimes, life feels meaningless and direction is hard to find. Developmental challenges, such as occupation choice, marriage, raising children, mid-life, and aging, pose particular stresses and are often times for re-evaluation."

"I believe every person has inner wisdom and the capacity for fulfillment in life. However, challenging events in the far or recent past can make this wisdom hard to access, or, at times, even imagine. Instead, you may experience anxiety, depression, relationship difficulties, or feelings of chronic stress. Using a collaborative, integrative approach I help you connect with your strengths, develop practical coping skills, and gain deep self-understanding and acceptance. In this way you can free yourself from self-limiting patterns and become more of who you want to be in your life."

But psychodynamic therapy is briefer and less intensive than psychoanalysis and also focuses on the relationship between the therapist and the client, as a way to learn about how the client relates to everyone in their life.
