My Approach to Therapy:

I believe that when you come to therapy, you have the opportunity not only to relieve your suffering, but also to work to build a life that feels more full and meaningful to you. My approach to the therapy process is to collaborate with you in order to help you reach your goals and engage wholeheartedly with your life. I utilize a strengths-based perspective which draws from several models of treatment including relational, psychodynamic, and family systems approaches. I also integrate mindfulness-based, cognitive-behavioral, and dialectical behavioral techniques into treatment as appropriate.
