My practice is dedicated to helping people overcome difficulties in managing troubling emotions, dysfunctional behaviors, or problems in career, relationship, or life transition. Working primarily in short-term cognitive behavioral models, trouble areas are defined and broken down. Clients are encouraged to collaborate on developing new, healthier perspectives, and effective coping strategies and skills. Foundations in psychodynamic and developmental theory, neuroscience, as well as eastern philosophy and mindfulness practice often inform and shape the course of work.
My primary responsibility to clients is to establish and maintain a safe place; an environment of comfort and trust, where clients may freely explore any area of thought, emotion, or behavior – assured of confidentiality, and without fear of judgment or repercussion.
