I have always gained great satisfaction from helping people feel happier and in learning more effective ways to achieve more fulfilling lives. Those clients who are eager and open to learning more about themselves in order to achieve these goals benefit most from my approach as a therapist. I often focus, therefore, on insight, meaning, and symbols (including dream interpretation)in order to help clients establish a more positive and accepting perspective of themselves and others. In therapy, I work with obstacles against achieving these goals that include anxiety, depression, addictions, anger, and interpersonal and relationship issues.

My approach to psychotherapy is focused on increasing self-understanding and changing longstanding patterns in thinking, feeling or relating to others that are no longer working. I view psychotherapy as an open-ended, collaborative relationship aimed at helping individuals look inward to find new solutions, develop healthier patterns and achieve emotional balance. My treatment philosophy is based in the Bio-psycho-social Model, in which a person's problems are understood in the context of their unique biological, psychological, social and environmental influences, and therapeutic approaches and interventions are chosen accordingly.
