"The most significant predictor of a successful therapy experience is the quality of the relationship between therapist and client. Building a safe, nurturing relationship is where I excel. My style is warm and highly interactive, best suited for clients who prefer a therapist who feels very human, less like the old "medical model." I assist clients to explore their thought patterns and corresponding emotional reactions, and to identify unconscious assumptions they hold about themselves, which inform their behavioral patterns. I also provide practical tools for regulating anxiety, managing depression, and processing grief & loss."

"Are you here because you're having a "dark night of the soul" and feeling hopeless? Or do you want to change a relationship pattern that keeps repeating no matter how much you try? Perhaps you want to transform your low self-esteem and FINALLY believe in yourself...You know that something has to change, but what and how? You have most likely thought yourself in circles around the problem, but you cannot think your way out of this one. Does all that thinking send you spiraling out and anxious, your inner-critic having a field day?"

"My style is warm, collaborative, playful, direct, and flexible. Psychotherapy is one of the few places where individuals are free to explore and express themselves in a deeply personal way. People come to therapy for different reasons and with different goals in mind. I am committed to offering a space that is innovative and values uniqueness, developing a way of working with you that accounts for your complexity and individual preferences. I encourage open dialogue and feedback regarding what you find helpful."

"Do you worry you're not where you thought you'd be in life? Wondering why others seem so content and together, while you’re quietly thinking you must be doing something wrong? Are there things you'd really like to be doing (personally or professionally), but you keep second-guessing yourself, your abilities or choices? It's easy to measure other people's outside appearances against our inner worlds, but the truth is life can be really hard sometimes...for everyone. I help individuals who are tired of feeling held back by worry or self-doubt, and want to move towards a life of greater meaning and satisfaction (as defined by them). "

"If you've always been different or struggle to fit into the mainstream, you might feel very alone. Maybe you have trouble finding ways to fit into a world that isn't always aligned with your strengths, perceptions, and values. You might even feel like something's wrong with you. Being different can make it hard to find a sense of identity and community, so I view it as my job to help you connect with your own strengths and build feelings of community and security, so you can feel more in touch and okay with who you are. And if trauma in your past is a part of the difference, I've been trained to help you gently unpack that too. "

"I help people to rapidly get to the core issues which keep them stuck in their lives, be it unhappy in their relationships, chronically depressed, angry, anxious, or just suffering. What almost always what creates suffering is the avoidance of painful feelings, either feelings from the past or recent events. When we avoid these painful feelings, we develop symptoms and suffer. The treatment approaches I use are evidence-based, meaning they've been researched, tested, and proven to work. And they lead to accelerated and long-lasting change, normally a fraction of the time it takes with other types of therapy. "
