Psychologist, PsyD
My approach is guided by the belief that people face difficulties in life in part because of painful early experiences that give rise to feelings that often remain out of awareness. As a result, these individuals can become depressed and anxious. Often, they find themselves repeatedly engaging in self-defeating patterns and becoming involved in relationships that are ultimately unsatisfying.

I believe that through thoughtful exploration and collaborative insight, my clients can become more fully aware of the experiences and feelings that contribute to their difficulties. I believe that this awareness can help my clients find relief from their symptoms and experience a stronger sense of self in the world.
When working with children and adolescents, I encourage children to communicate their feelings through imaginative play and therapeutic games. For my adolescent clients, I provide a safe, non-judgmental environment for them to be able able to talk about difficult feelings and experiences and come up with effective coping skills.
