I work with clients at their own pace to guide them through a better understanding of their issues and concerns while challenging them to take steps for an improved way of living. I take a predominantly psychodynamic approach that focuses on discovering and exploring past experiences, inner thought processes, and relationship patterns to relieve and repair core personal issues. Additionally, I take a more active and teaching role when certain symptoms or behaviors require the instruction and practice of new skills.
I provide individual therapy to adolescents and adults, couples therapy, and group therapy. I primarily work with individuals with depression, anxiety, or relational issues. However, my experience and training in mental health have been varied to include successful treatment of those with behavioral problems, grief, bipolar disorder, and schizophrenia.
Therapy will focus on your goals and areas of need, and length of treatment will be a collaborative decision based on those goals and needs. Whether you are coming to therapy for personal growth or specific concerns, starting our relationship by creating a supportive and caring environment is of utmost importance to me. Through our work together, I hope to help replace suffering and distress with relief and a new outlook on life.
I accept some insurance and offer therapy on a sliding fee scale so that it can be affordable for you. Please contact me with your questions.
