Common problems that bring people to therapy are such things as anxiety, depression, loss, relationship difficulties, life transitions and trauma. I use a psychodynamic approach to get an understanding of deeper issues that may underlie these present day problems.

I will work with you to formulate a plan to change long standing problems with behaviors and negative perceptions, and to achieve a greater sense of well being.
Have you ever wondered how it would feel to have a space to express yourself freely without judgment & criticism?

I view clients as experts of their own experiences and take a collaborative approach to counseling. Working together, we can develop the tools and insights needed to achieve your therapeutic goals. In addition to this person-centered approach, I utilize solutions-focused, acceptance and commitment (ACT), cognitive behavioral (CBT), and dialectical behavioral (DBT) therapeutic modalities and mindfulness tools based on clients' needs.
I believe many of our emotional and relational difficulties are connected to the experiences we have growing up in our unique family systems. These experiences shape core beliefs about who we are and what we can expect from others. This work involves becoming unstuck emotionally and healing faulty relationship maps, losses, or traumatic wounds of the past. I can support you to resolve the unfinished business of the past so you don’t have to keep recreating it in the present and find that when clients create healing at the root cause, the symptoms are no longer needed. While pain and loss are inevitable, suffering is optional.
