Languages Spoken:

I provide insight oriented therapy.  We will review your past and explore how it relates to the present.  We discuss how you interact with the people in your life; past and present.  As you gain insight, it teaches you to see things in a new way.  I believe that's where change begins!  This allows you to try out doing things differently.  It can be hard to make changes.  That's often what brings people into therapy.  You'll see that subtle changes can make a huge difference.
