My Approach

At the foundation of my therapeutic work is a belief that the answers you are searching for are already within you. My job is to help you dig them out. 

I pull primarily from relational, Gestalt, attachment-based, and insight-oriented approaches in my work. Though this lends itself to longer-term therapeutic exploration, I also have significant experience in short-term, solution-focused counseling.

Our relationship is important in facilitating your healing. It is crucial that you feel like we are a good fit. Read more about my approach by exploring the Services tab, or reach out to me via the form under the Contact tab if you have any questions or would like to schedule an appointment.
