My Education

My Private Practice

I utilize psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, and interpersonal techniques in my practice.  In essence, I believe that positive change develops through both insight and action.  Therefore, I strive to help my clients do three things: explore how their problems developed (to prevent repetition), identify the changes they would like to make, and then determine how to put those changes into action. As I work collaboratively with my clients using this approach, they frequently report that they feel happier, more content, and more empowered.
