I draw from Freudian and Jungian theories, humanistic, and transpersonal theories, blended with the buddhist psychological concepts of mindfulness and self-compassion.
My goal is to create a safe and comfortable space where clients can articulate their inner experience through both words and symbols. Deeper and clearer understanding unfolds as we engage in the therapeutic process with both a playful curiosity and a nonjudgmental attitude. I listen deeply and empathize with clients, while simultaneously encouraging them to confront the unhealthy roles, ineffective patterns and behaviors, and difficult emotions that are keeping them stuck in their lives. I believe that psychotherapeutic work profoundly transforms our inner worlds. It is truly a gift to be witness, partner, and guide on this journey.

To help understand and navigate the healing process, I draw upon psychodynamic/analytic, existential-humanistic, family-systems, experiential, cognitive-behavioral, transpersonal, trauma-informed, dialectical, and client-centered orientations.
Whether one seeks relief from anxiety, trauma, relational impasses, or life disillusionment, therapy can help. It is unfortunate that insufficiently engaged approaches to therapy, prohibitive rates, and the irresponsible reluctance of some clinicians to accept insurance fail so many clients, who in good faith seek to discover a healing of heart and mind. As a psychodynamic therapist, I view my role as an empathic change agent employed to help bring about a fuller knowledge of self and a more liberated experience of life and relationship. It is my honor to assist clients interested in embarking upon their journey towards healing.
