Philosophy

Therapy is a conversation about what it means for you to be human. By pursuing therapy, you are courageously exploring your human experience and the possibilities for healing, growth, and authentic living. My goal as a psychotherapist is to provide compassionate support to each individual I work with through the use of knowledge, understanding, intuition, and competencies that I’ve acquired during my years of practice.

 

My practice is client-centered. I use a variety of approaches in therapy depending on what I believe will be the most effective and the best fit for you. My approach may be based on interpersonal, cognitive behavioral, gestalt, mindfulness, humanistic or existential philosophies. Your relationships, particularly those formed in your early life, greatly influence the development of your beliefs, ideas, choices and relational patterns. With this in mind, we can explore the intricacies of your interpersonal life, and their influence on your struggles, to find and address the sources of these struggles. We will explore how your way of relating to others contributes to the nature of your relationships, with the hope of nurturing your awareness, acceptance, and ultimately encouraging shifts.

 

In addition to being a psychotherapist, I am also a licensed physical therapist. My extensive experience in the physical realm is an asset that will benefit you as I strongly believe in the interconnectivity of emotional, mental and physical health. My interdisciplinary, holistic approach honors the beauty and complexity of our humanness. I look forward to working with you.
