Emotionally focused therapy (EFT), Psychodynamic
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. My style in the room is direct, empathic, collaborative, and playful.

I became a psychologist because I believe in the healing power of feeling seen, heard and understood by others. I am inspired by and grateful for my clients who trust me with their inner worlds each week, both in moments of pain and of joy.
