Approach to Therapy

Seeking therapy can be a daunting task and often people are ambivalent about entering a therapeutic relationship.  Through years of psychotherapy practice with adults and couples, I have found that real change is possible when one feels safe, validated and accepted. My work is grounded in the belief that with the right support and practical tools one can gain confidence in tackling obstacles such as anxiety, depression, loss and difficult life events. My style is integrative and solution focused.

I believe it is most important to meet the individual where they are. I approach therapy with an integrative style, focusing on what is best for the client, thereby allowing him or her to guide the therapy.  My interventions with clients focus on their perceptions of experiences, how they react to these experiences, and how they allow these experiences to affect their relationships and interactions.  Through my psychodynamic as well as my dialectical and cognitive behavioral training, I am able to provide clients with a range of treatment that is tailored to their personal goals, growth and/ or healing.
