As most research shows, the relationship between therapist and client is the most important thing (coupled with a therapist, like me, with extensive training). I am known for being someone that makes people feel comfortable pretty quickly. I think you will find that I truly care about you and your well being.
The people who most benefit from my approach understand that change takes time and therefore, so does therapy. I offer sessions no less than one time per week. Each session is 50 minutes in duration.
My overarching belief is that you are the expert of you and your life. I will support you, as we work together to find ways to make the changes you are seeking. In order to do that, I will be very curious and ask many questions about who you are and what it is you'd like to change.
I am engaged throughout our session and I use humor when appropriate. I utilize an eclectic approach to individual psychotherapy. This means I have many different tools in my toolbox to ensure that you receive the support you deserve. More specifically, I follow the teachings related to psychoanalytic/psychotherapy - relational, object relations, insight oriented and interpersonal schools of thought. I also utilize cognitive behavioral and wellness tools.
