"Clinical psychotherapy is a process of deepening self awareness and supporting people to live more authentically. In my practice I emphasize working with children and adolescents. One of the most essential developmental tasks for young people is to discover who they are. Therapy is profoundly well fit for this process. Developing an understanding of one's emotional landscape at a young age allows for greater maturity and authentic decision making. Therapy helps young people unravel complex family dynamics, thus increasing genuine individuality. The outcome is the ability to be in charge of ourselves with confidence, emotional intelligence, and deep satisfaction."

"I utilize cognitive-behavioral, solution-focused and dialectical behavioral interventions to help my clients bring about the necessary changes in their lives to feel comfortable and happy again and diminish the distress and discomfort they are feeling. By learning to focus on strengths and resources rather than past problems and failings, my clients report feeling less depressed and anxious, while looking forward to the days ahead. I am aware of the important role of thinking in how we feel and what we do, and so I help my clients replace dysfunctional thoughts with more adaptive ones. Life is special."
