The purpose of my work as a psychotherapist is to help my clients make positive changes in their lives by enabling them to learn new things about themselves, deepen their self-awareness, and develop greater emotional flexibility.
Although I focus on what’s happening in the here and now, I believe that unresolved issues from the past tend to create obstacles that hold people back in the present. Psychotherapy is helpful in working through such issues by addressing underlying emotions and bringing them into consciousness. This process makes it possible to achieve a sense of inner peace and emotional freedom, as well as more fulfilling relationships with oneself and others.
My therapeutic style is warm, compassionate, non-judgmental, holistic, and interactive. Working collaboratively, I tailor the treatment to each unique person. My approach is informed by my training in psychoanalysis, behavioral methods, mindfulness, and my personal yoga and meditation practice.
