Facing difficult, challenging times throughout the lifecycle is inevitable for all of us. It is up to each of us how we choose to deal with the stress. Congratulations on taking the biggest step by deciding to look for help for yourself or a loved one! Seeking help does not mean you are weak. On the contrary it means you are brave in your willingness to face and combat obstacles standing in your way of happiness and fulfillment. You value the quality of your life, and strive to achieve more than just surviving and getting by.
As a psychotherapist, I feel privileged to provide others with support and guidance, so that they may have healthy, satisfying relationships. My therapeutic style is non-judgmental, compassionate, and interactive. I utilize an insight-oriented integrative approach. I am actively engaged during sessions, and gear my interventions to the specific needs of each individual. I draw elements from the theoretical orientations of cognitive behaviorial therapy, psychodynamic theory, and family systems therapy. Together, we seek solutions to problems and understand how past conflicts influence the present.
