Practice Philosophy

 

At the core, I believe that our past and present relationship patterns—both conscious and unconscious—form who we are and how we navigate the world. I view therapy as a way to gain new insight and a new experience of these patterns. 

My approach to psychotherapy is rooted in psychodynamic theories. When it best suits an individual’s needs, I also incorporate mindfulness techniques and/or cognitive behavioral therapy.

Regardless of the approach or technique, I strive to create an empathic space where trust and rapport can be built. I believe that it is through establishing, exploring, and building upon our therapist-client relationship that healing and change can emerge. I invite you to be an active, curious participant in the process of therapy so that together we can understand your thoughts, feelings, behaviors, and concerns.
