About My Practice

In working with adult individuals and with couples, I tailor the therapy to the needs and the personality that each person brings to me.   I primarily work from a psychodynamic framework but use my life experience and my training in other modalities when your situation indicates that other approaches might be useful.  In all of the work I do, you likely will find me to be an actively engaged therapist who quickly comes to care about your struggles.  

 

Generally speaking, I want to help you identify and remove obstacles to having emotionally-fulfilling lives.

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Addiction and Recovery

  • Codependency
