Areas of Expertise

If you are in emotional pain, if you are frustrated, sad, anxious, or confused about yourself, your relationships, your work, or specific patterns in your life, it is likely I can help. I have extensive experience in providing evidence-based psychodynamic, cognitive-behavioral, relational, and attachment-based treatment in both short-term and long-term individual and couples therapy. Incorporating these modalities into an integrative approach tailored to your particular needs, I can help you to make sense of confusing or troubling thoughts, feelings, interpersonal interactions, experiences, and outcomes, and improve your relationships, self-esteem, and ability to achieve your goals. Together, we can make sense of your story and discover what you can do differently, so you can live differently.
