"I work with individuals, couples, and families who want to address long-term problems and patterns. It is through this kind of personal exploration that a deeper understanding can be attained and the sense-of-self can be strengthened. A psychodynamic approach can go below the surface to address problems, improve personal relationships, and stop self-destructive behavior. So often, past experiences can interfere with our present lives and we find ourselves suffering through repeated ongoing pain."

"I am a therapist that treats people, not patients. Therapy often has a misperception that it is for people who are "weak", "emotionally unstable", "fragile", or "crazy." In our busyness, life can often become complicated very quickly, and hard to handle on your own. Taking your car to a mechanic is a natural response when you don't know how to fix it, so when the warning lights come on your dashboard of life it can be very helpful to have a trusted counselor help you navigate these relationships. I take a direct attachment-based approach to help you understand what drives your current behaviors so you can implement sustained change."
