My approach to psychotherapy involves seeing each client as unique with a very personal history. I start by getting to know you - your likes and dislikes, your relationships, how you manage your feelings, your general experiences in life. We will define the problems together, and then we will - together - define your goals for treatment. I use a client-centered approach with a strong emphasis on Rational Emotive Behavior Therapy.

Psychotherapy, often referred to as talk therapy is of then the first line of intervention for people suffering through life transitions, anxiety, depression or a loss. Talk therapy helps one to focus on the thoughts and actions that may have become a pattern of maladaptive coping skills. By reviewing life events that have shaped a person, there can be insight into new coping mechanisms that might be more adaptive.
