"Are you feeling stuck? Are you not finding enjoyment in life? Do you feel depressed? Do you feel anxious? Are you overly self-critical / feel inadequate? Are you experiencing conflict in your relationship?
   I Specialize in Treating:
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Feelings of Inadequacy or Insecurity
  • Relationship Conflict
  • Maladaptive Behavior

These are all good reasons to seek help. The fact that you have the motivation and desire to improve things is a positive sign.
The Benefits of Counseling with Me Are: 
  • Non-Judgmental and Empathic
  • Uses a collaborative approach to tailor treatment to each individual
  • Experience dealing with a wide range of issues
  • Overcoming issues for a happier life
Treatment is a way of taking care of yourself. It's not always the easiest process, but it is often a very rewarding one. I look forward to taking the journey with you. 

"I love what I do."

Working with people to help them gain a deeper understanding of themselves is both an incredible challenge and a great privilege. I try to avoid labels such as "good" and "bad" because it is a form of judgment and tends to limit the exploration of our inner selves. I work with you to better understand your personal experience, so that you can take better advantage of the assets, attributes and passions that drive you.

 Although my practice method is psychoanalytically-oriented, I use an eclectic approach, which considers the individual's needs, as opposed to a one-size fits all practice. I believe that we all do things for a reason, and understanding the meaning behind those reasons, can help us gain a deeper understanding of who we are, which can ultimately help us become better versions of ourselves.
 "I think of the work as a collaborative effort."
Although I'm a trained professional, you are ultimately the expert when it comes to you. I'm generally skeptical of quick fixes, as many of our difficulties come from years and years of patterned thoughts and behaviors, often beginning before our earliest memories. The timeline varies, as it is not uncommon for people to come in for specific reasons, and have those reasons change over time. We are always changing, so it is not surprising that things shift over time.
