I am a warm, down-to-earth, and depth-oriented therapist, with a gentle yet confrontational style. I believe in the importance of exploring both past and present experiences in order to help you to achieve your goals, discover your authentic self, and create lasting change. My approach is eclectic, primarily psychodynamic and relational, while using techniques from mindfulness, DBT, and CBT.
