My approach to therapy is relational. I believe the problems that lead people to therapy are often interpersonal in nature and I see the therapeutic relationship as the primary agent of change. I endeavor to create with my clients a relationship that does not repeat the problematic relational patterns that led them to therapy. I use the therapeutic relationship to show clients that different and more satisfying interpersonal outcomes are possible. I also draw upon an existential approach to help clients accept responsibility for their role in creating themselves, their relationships and their experiential world.

I tend to work well with individuals that feel deeply, are highly sensitive to their environment, empathic, and who struggle to connect with themselves and their own needs, often putting others first. Someone interested in re-routing some of their mental energy toward the process of self-attunement, mindful awareness, and self-love, would be a wonderful candidate for my style of work. I insist whenever possible in laughing with my clients, and showing love and care in the way I listen actively, and share my energy with those I support.
