Portrait 2019There are two threads that inform my therapeutic approach, and both made their appearance long before I decided to become a psychologist. First, I’ve always been interested in people and their stories.  Helping someone discover, understand, and reinterpret their life story is exciting and fulfilling, both professionally and personally. Second, I always felt that the influences of class, race, sex, relationships, and identity can’t be seen in isolation in order to understand and change the direction of one’s life.  

I have expertise in a variety of therapeutic methods including psychodynamic/interpersonal, mindfulness, trauma theory, cognitive behavioral theory, mindfulness, and hypnosis.  I individualize your therapy to suit your needs.
