My Approach

About me

​I take an evidence-based approach to psychotherapy​, utilizing the latest empirically validated treatments. 

When working with adults I look for hidden lifelong patterns that, once exposed, release the client from being bound to old ways of thinking and behaving. Oftentimes these patterns carry across different situations, such as work, personal relationships, and self-esteem. 

When working with teenagers I empower them to find their voice, individuate and own their power, and heal from the experiences that have detracted from their confidence in themselves. Adolescents are sometimes reluctant to engage in therapy because they are afraid that they will be told what to do and how to think. Instead, the experience of my clients is that therapy is a place where their ideas, core personality, and preferences are given room to shine and grow.
