Therapy is about creating meaningful, lasting change that contributes to a sense of fulfillment in your own life and in your relationships with others. It's an investment in you and those around you. I have a collaborative, goal-oriented approach, tailored to each individual and shaped by my own training, experience, and interests as well as my curiosity, empathy and respect for others. My practice is informed by a wide variety of influences (psychodynamic training, parent management training, cognitive behavioral studies including DBT and mindfulness) and interests (meditation, parenting issues, work/life balance, life transitions, neuropsychology, positive psychology).
I work with children, teens, young to middle age adults, parents and couples on a variety of issues including stress and anxiety; depression, adjusting to life events and transitions; interpersonal conflict and communication; relationship issues; parenting problems; academic and occupational struggles, and emotional regulation issues including anger management.
The wonderful thing about change is it can start in thought- cultivating greater self-awareness or behavior- learning a new skill. Whatever the starting place, our ability to connect with one another in an authentic way, in which you feel understood, is critical to the change process.
