Welcome To My Practice
If you are looking for a psychotherapist, chances are you have been aware that something is out of sync, either with your job, your relationship, your feelings about yourself, or something that has happened in the past. Whether this is your first time seeking help or you have been in treatment before, it is
courageous to take the first step in finding someone to help you. Not only is it difficult to admit needing help, it takes effort and perseverance to find someone with whom you feel comfortable and upon whom you can rely.
My philosophy is that people want to function optimally in their lives - both through work and play. We want satisfying relationships, we want to feel productive - if not essential - in our work lives, we want to be healthy, and we want to feel engaged in something that brings us pleasure outside of our work and relationships.
As a generalist, I have experience with a wide range of patients and have worked with a wide variety of mental health challenges. These include: anxiety, depression, eating disorders, behavioral problems such as addictions, obsessive-compulsive disorder, relationship difficulties, learning disabilities, autism-spectrum disorders in young adults, social anxiety and awkwardness unrelated to ASD, obesity and overeating, sexual dysfunction and personality disorders.
My approach is holistic: You are not just a set of symptoms, but a complex individual. Through the development of a therapeutic relationship, we can come to understand who you are and how you would like to function in your life. I believe in treating the whole person, and in doing so, addressing the presenting issue.
In addition to individual and couples therapy, I offer group psychotherapy, clinical supervision and psychological/psychoeducational evaluations.
