My Approach


I'm an integrative therapist, which means that I draw from

several different psychotherapy orientations. My work is

informed by psychodynamic, behavioristic, humanistic, and

systemic approaches. In other words, I formulate my

approach to fit you and your needs, rather than the other

way around. Most importantly, I am relational, creative,

and holistic.


Successful therapy depends on a strong and positive

relationship between client and therapist, and nurturing

that bond, beginning with a safe and supportive

environment, is my first priority. My style is warm,

collaborative, and direct, and I appreciate the healing

power of humor. I believe that therapy is most effective

when it is flexible, demystified, and client-centered.


You already have in you everything you need to be well and

whole. As your guide and your advocate, I help you

develop the insight, curiosity, and courage to know yourself

deeply and live your life fully.
