Once you make the decision to seek therapy, finding a therapist who "gets you" is the key element in starting the process. I focus on: Eating disorders Trauma resolution / PTSD Adolescents in crisis Elite athletes. As a psychodynamic therapist, my goal is to help clients uncover their true potential and lead a life that is meaningful; it's about having a life that becomes worth celebrating.
I work with clients from a holistic approach to therapy through exploration of psychological, emotional, spiritual and relational aspects of life. I use an integrative counseling approach, utilizing a strengths-based perspective grounded in both psychodynamic and Internal Family Systems (IFS) theories.
My therapeutic focus guides clients through a transformative process to find self-confidence, self-trust, self-compassion and a more easeful, balanced life. If you are looking for extra support and guidance from a challenging situation, I will work with you to achieve your goals.
I have been in practice for over 15 years in both treatment centers and private practice. I am dedicated to staying abreast of all current research and best practices.
