Modality & Approach

I am primarily relational/interpersonal and psycho-dynamically oriented which means that I will simultaneously help you focus on the here-and-now while pushing you to uncover and repair deeper, older patterns of relating to yourself and the world. I also believe that therapy is not a one-size-fits-all endeavor, and I often employ a variety of techniques from mindfulness, CBT and DBT approaches to enrich our work when useful.
