ABOUT MY STYLE

Active, Empathic, Transparent

Often, we seek therapy when we feel overwhelmed—by anxiety, depression, a life transition or a difficult relationship. I create an empathic, non-judgmental space where you can catch your breath, regain your balance, and, ultimately, become more confident, settled and secure.

Together, we’ll identify the patterns that are holding you back, as well as your unique strengths. I tailor my approach to best address your needs and abilities, and I provide straightforward strategies and insights drawn from my extensive training in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Dialectical Behavior Therapy, Psychodynamic Therapy, and Internal Family Systems. I believe authenticity, honesty and humor make up the heart of an effective treatment.

To learn more details about my therapeutic style, read my blog post about it.
