People sometimes come to psychotherapy seeking support in getting through a challenging time or in making a difficult decision. Others are looking to change long-term patterns of behaving and relating. And some are interested in more generally examining their motivations and increasing self-awareness. Whatever your goal or motivation, I believe psychotherapy can facilitate discovery and growth that can strengthen and improve the quality of your relationships not only with with the significant people in your life but also, maybe more importantly, with yourself.

My therapeutic approach is based on a psychodynamic perspective with a strength-based, ego-supportive, and empathic stance. I am mindful of each individual’s unique needs and circumstances with a strong awareness of socioeconomic, cultural, and environmental factors that contribute to various experiences and stressors. I integrate nonverbal and verbal aspects of the therapeutic process through the use of creative arts as I've found both to be effective in exploring one’s unconscious mind and understanding how it may be affecting conscious behaviors and thought processes.

I believe in drawing from a wide range of approaches and theories, but always grounded in psychodynamic understanding, focusing on what is best suited to each person in their own therapy. I know that a trusting relationship must be the foundation of any therapeutic process if it is to be productive, and this is the kind of environment I try to create for all of my clients. I am engaged and interactive, and I work with a wide range of clients with varying backgrounds and issues.

Therapy is a path to change, growth and healing so you can live the life you want. Our lives turn in unexpected ways, at times it causes us anxieties and discomfort. As we all face emotional and professional conflicts that leave us feeling lonely, unfulfilled or stuck, it's hard to keep hope when you feel trapped by longstanding patterns in your relationships, thoughts, or career. I believe that change is possible. Psychotherapy speaks in many voices. In a safe and non-judgmental environment, my aim is to help you understand the roadblocks, both past and present, impacting your actions and feelings.

We all reach moments in our lives where we feel stagnant. This is often due to unprocessed trauma and unexpressed emotions. I work with individuals who often feel sad, worried, and confused about what's happening in their mind and body. These individuals have a drive to move past such feelings by doing the difficult work of showing up, being vulnerable, and diving deep into complex emotions. They seek a deeper understanding of themselves, their patterns, and their histories in order to move towards a brighter, more centered future. If this describes your wish for yourself, then contact me today to start your journey.

Therapy can provide a space for individuals to safely and openly explore past and present experiences of trauma, conflict, and desire. Addressing these experiences in therapy without the threat or fear of judgment can help alleviate stress, anxiety, anger, and depression. The relationship that develops between the client and therapist, in addition to the client's individual strengths, insight, and motivation, facilitates growth and progress towards the client's ultimate goals. A mutually trusting and respectful relationship between the client and therapist is therefore a necessary and key factor in my practice.
