My Approach

My approach to therapy focuses on supporting you in developing insight into issues and behavior that interfere with healing and making the changes you want in your life. I will assist you in bringing unconscious beliefs and patterns into awareness, as well as help you better understand your past and how it impacts your present life.

Self-awareness and insight will enable you to make different choices, improve relationships with others, and cultivate self-acceptance and authenticity. A holistic approach means including not only the emotional and relational aspects of your life, but also spirituality, cultural heritage, physical health, and the connection between mind and body. I invite you to explore and integrate all dimensions of your life in our work together, and to include complementary therapies, if desired.

In harmony with a psychoanalytic/psychodynamic approach, I also incorporate mindfulness techniques, yoga practices, cognitive-behavioral strategies, writing, and dream-work, as well as exploration of existential concerns.

If you want change, but are unsure of what that means for your life, we will work together to bring your goals into clearer focus. I would consider it an honor to share a part of your journey with you.

And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
