The most obvious, important realities in our lives are often the ones that are hardest to see and talk about. My role is to help illuminate the essence of who you are, and to foster self-awareness and enlightenment so that you become who you want to be. I offer experience in couples/family counseling, substance abuse, anxiety/depression, personality disorders, and trauma.
My modalities include, but are not limited to, Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic/Psychoanalytic Approaches, Dialectical-Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Interpersonal/Family Systems Theories.
Central to my approach is a philosophy of mindfulness, and the idea that how we construct meaning from experience is a matter of personal, intentional choice. The psychotherapy I practice involves careful listening to the difficulties that manifest in a person’s life, then working to unravel these experiences to treat not only symptoms but underlying causes.
I would be honored to work with anyone who is unafraid to learn and grow, even when it feels terrifying or impossible. Therapy is a powerful catalyst in transforming the narrative of our lives, because healing can only occur when the stories we tell ourselves turn into less painful ones. Change is possible, through re-connection (with our true selves and with others), and happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if we only remember to turn on the light.
