Each person's broad web of relationships and external circumstances impacts their view of the world and ability to cope within it. With over 15 years experience as a clinical psychotherapist, I consider these and other factors in my work with individuals and couples.
My theoretical perspective is integrative, heavily rooted in the psychodymanic approach, but drawing from the relational and cognitive-behavioral (CBT) models when appropriate. My approach is empathic, interactive and collaborative. Each session is uniquely tailored to the individual, taking into account the goals of the therapy. While i see the importance in identifying root causes for behavior, I believe it is equally important to focus on coping mechanisms in the present and developing effective solutions for managing life's difficulties. The therapy can be short-term, addressing a particular issue or life transition, or longer-term, focusing on more complex problems or personal growth
