I believe that therapy presents individuals and families with invaluable opportunities to invest in themselves and their futures. As a therapist, I strive to initiate supportive, safe, and trustworthy relationships with all of my clients, ultimately establishing opportunities for positive change and self-reflection. I tailor my approach to each client’s unique experience and set of needs, taking great care to understand the complex challenges life can present. Together with my clients, we strive to foster personal growth and discover new ways to lead a more satisfying life. My approach involves a combination of Psychodynamic, Dialectical Behavioral Therapy, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy methods to cultivate growth and healing. My ultimate goal is to offer a range of targeted techniques to cope with and navigate challenging problems of any type and degree.
