Do you want to change something in your life that isn't working for you? Perhaps you've been struggling with anxiety or depression, a relationship that isn't fulfilling, or a lack of purpose for your life. You may have gotten help before but found that it didn't last, or merely removed the symptoms. I will help you get relief by working to resolve your problem at its root cause.
I provide a caring, compassionate, empathic, and nonjudgmental environment in which you will be able to accept yourself fully, discover your authentic self, and unlock your own inner wisdom for guidance. I am a seasoned clinician with 35 year of experience in a variety of settings with diverse populations.
My primary therapeutic modalities are psychodynamic and cognitive behavioral, but my overall approach is eclectic, utilizing whatever modalities are best suited to the individual. I have found the Enneagram to be a powerful tool for understanding others and helping them to realize their inherent potential.
