CARING, COLLABORATIVE, AND PRACTICAL PSYCHOTHERAPY
FOR ADULTS, TEENS, AND COUPLES
People often come to me because they feel stuck. They see themselves as ineffective in life or powerless to overcome negative thoughts. They may struggle to find common ground in relationships, or are caught in destructive patterns that keep them from achieving their goals.
Others come in search of meaning. They have a sense of something deeper or of potential that is waiting to be fulfilled, yet they don’t know themselves well enough to realize what is possible.
In over 18 years as a psychotherapist, I have come to appreciate the wisdom of every individual to succeed over what seem like impossible obstacles. I believe the personal challenges you face have roots in and can be met with your natural abilities. Psychotherapy invites a process of recognizing your best self, exposing resilience, and freeing yourself from the barriers to fulfillment.
My goal is to provide a safe and creative space in which we collaborate to reveal your potential. I take an interactive approach, which means I listen attentively, partner with you to explore your concerns, and share my observations and experience to promote self-awareness, confidence, healing, and growth. My interventions are tailored to address your specific needs, and include techniques from cognitive-behavioral, interpersonal, feminist, and humanistic psychotherapies.
HELP FOR SPECIFIC NEEDS
I offer clinical assessments, consultation, and lifestyle coaching, in addition to brief and long-term psychotherapy for individuals and couples. Treatment recommendations are personalized and take into account the nature of your concerns, treatment goals, relevant personal history, and other resources available to you.
