Psychotherapy for You
I provide psychotherapy for individuals and couples. My aim is to help you identify and understand past experiences and assist you in making decisions to cultivate a life of meaning and peace.

I believe in establishing clear goals for our work together using a collaborative approach. During our meetings we can work on quieting your harsh inner critic, understanding your fears and anxiety, and strengthening your self esteem. My goal is to create a comfortable space in which to address your concerns and help you thrive.

My Approach
I use a variety of therapeutic techniques which cater to your unique needs, bearing in mind that those needs may change over time. Together the work we create is a “work in progress”. My style is a combination of psychodynamic, self-psychology and cognitive/behavioral. I am a very interactive therapist who incorporates warmth and humor. Additionally, I find it helpful with many of my clients to incorporate various spiritual/grounding philosophies such as meditation, visualization techniques as well as discussions about health and exercise.

I also believe that first and foremost, a client needs to make a solid connection with her/his therapist and that a genuine, down-to-earth stance on the part of the therapist affords the client the most beneficial and comfortable experience in the therapy room. Feedback over the years from my clients includes feeling extremely comfortable to share their information and also an appreciation of my direct and interactive style.
