I consider myself a relational and psychodynamic therapist. This means that I am interested in understanding your early life experiences and relationships and thinking together about how these either support or challenge your day to day life. I also value the relationship we will build as an important place where understanding can begin and healing can occur.  My interest is in helping people to understand themselves more fully, learning to value all of the unique parts of the self. In the process, most patients find that their most distressing symptoms abate, they gain a capacity to experience and regulate difficult emotions, find themselves relating more empathically towards their loved ones, and experiencing life with more vitality and authenticity.
