My style is warm, interactive, respectful, practical, and collaborative, and I have experience working with clients of all ages and backgrounds. I believe that establishing a safe and trusting therapeutic environment is the foundation on which to increase self-understanding and insight, and that this is essential to promoting growth and achieving therapeutic goals. My years of experience have strengthened my sense of optimism and belief that you can feel better, and that change and growth are possible.With over ten years of clinical experience and training, I help individuals to better understand and accept themselves, which gives them greater ease and freedom to engage in life more fully. Most importantly, people leave with new knowledge and skills that help them cope with the inevitable life challenges that may arise in the future.It has been my experience that combining insight (psychodynamic) and goal oriented (CBT) methods in an integrative approach offers the most effective, individualized, and flexible treatment. Taking the courageous step to begin therapy is the start of your journey towards feeling better.
