About

I was drawn to the mental health profession for two reasons, my desire to help people, and my passion for psychology and understanding the human experience.  My most effective work with clients comes from my ability to help someone gain new perspectives, and teaching coping skills for some of the most troubling inner experiences—such as our feelings of isolation, disconnectedness, abandonment, helplessness, and trauma.  My therapeutic techniques are varied, and depending on the presenting challenge I will work from one or a combination of modalities, particularly: Existential, CBT, DBT, or a Mindfulness based approach.  I believe in holding an unconditional positive regard, a not judging stance, towards all my clients, and I work towards being focused on solutions and my client’s strengths.  Sometimes in life we cannot solve all our challenges alone, and I consider it an honor to share the therapy experience with another person—as they grow and create a life they want to live.
