Psychotherapy

My Therapeutic Approach

 

I help clients by using tools from cognitive behavioral therapy, psychodynamic psychotherapy, and family therapy.

Our work together focuses on making changes in present life, and personal history is used mainly to shed light on current problems. Compassion, hope and humor help us create an optimal environment for growth.

Each person, couple, or family, brings a unique set of needs and circumstances to our meetings. Together we construct a plan of action, bolster resilience, develop nascent strengths and experiment with new behaviors.
