My work as a therapist is grounded in the belief that we are all capable of having meaningful, satisfying lives. My personal style as a therapist is warm, accepting, and intuitive.
Every client is different and I do my best to adjust my technique to meet the needs of each individual client. For some this means a more directive, short-term approach, while others prefer a long-term, depth approach. I am able to provide guidance for whatever your preference is, and invite my clients to provide feedback about what works best for them.
While I integrate many therapeutic orientations in my work, I mostly approach issues from a psychodynamic perspective. This means that we will spend time exploring some of your past relationships and how they affect your present life. Together we will look at patterns that may have been established long ago, learn from them, and then replace them with healthier ways of functioning.
My experience includes working with adults, children, couples, and groups on various topics such as:
- Career change
- Domestic violence
- Eating disorders
- Post Partum Disorders
- Premarital counseling
- Substance abuse
