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.

My goal is for my clients to develop a deepened relationship to themselves. This work involves us partnering to find language and create structures that facilitate change.

My practice is centered around the idea that everyone has a story to tell, and that by sharing and thinking about the constitutive elements of these stories they can reach the understanding of themselves they've been looking for. The goal of therapy is to make the unconscious conscious, as Freud said, and by looking at the narrative of your life we can create a framework for understanding how the issues you face have come about, and how you can address them in order to lead a fuller, more mindful and meaningful life.

I believe each of us is born with an authentic self that guides us on our path and has the innate capacity for healing. When that authentic self is not nurtured enough by our environment, it develops defenses as protection. Patterns of behavior, ways of perceiving the world, and anxiety often result. Through our work together, I help you to integrate mind, body and spirit, strengthening your authentic self and exploring whether the defenses are still needed. I am interested in your strengths as well as your struggles, and my aim is for you to begin to feel grounded, whole and centered.

People usually come to therapy seeking relief from problems that have become intrusive, limiting or painful. Through talking in session, you will start to become aware of thoughts and feelings you didn't know you had, of desires hovering below consciousness. My job is to help you connect to your inner experience, and to provide an atmosphere of tolerance and curiosity where we explore it together. The process itself generates insight and emotional awareness. From there we work to transform what you're learning about yourself into positive change and self-assertion.
