I believe that safety, genuineness, care, and trust are at the core of an effective therapy.

My approach is to first just sit with you and understand what you are going through, as a whole. I’m interested in getting to know you as a person, where you are coming from in your life, and what you’d like to change and improve moving forward.

My foundation is in increasing depth, insight, and self-discovery from a relational perspective.

I also integrate various techniques along with psychotherapy. These include affect regulation, grounding, emotional focus, mindfulness, and cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).

The approaches we will use in our work are based on what makes most sense for your situation and are always decided together.
