No matter what issues you bring to therapy, I use an approach that is comprehensive and open minded. (My training is in relational, self- psychological, existential, humanistic, interpersonal and feminist modes of psychotherapy.)

Each of us has stories about our histories  that we tell and retell to ourselves and others. We become stuck when we believe they are frozen and unchangeable. As we  talk about your experiences, we  create a  shared vocabulary of meaning.  Together we can start paying attention to the parts of you that may have been neglected, mistreated or misunderstood.
This  journey has both moments of victory and  challenge.  It's  not always as quick a fix as we would like,  but with patience, the results can be enduring and transformative. Finding the right match in a therapist is key and I encourage you to come in for a session to see how it feels between us.
