Top Psychotherapist providing treatment in-person and by telehealth.
In order for therapy to be successful, it is important to establish a client/therapist relationship that is supportive and honest. In fact, it is the nature – and the quality – of our relationship that will determine the success of your overall therapy goals. The success of the ‘meeting of the minds’ with your psychotherapist is the most accurate predictor of a positive, healthy outcome to the hard work you put in towards your happiness.
There is a large body of research that supports insight oriented and cognitive therapy. It reveals that individuals who practice these techniques are happier, more resilient, and better equipped to heal. It would be my honor and mission to help you move past what’s blocking you, and to reach your potential as an individual and in your relationships.
The foundation of my approach is Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I then work toward a tailored plan which can incorporate insight-oriented therapy, cognitive restructuring, and other proven modalities.
In addition to my work with individuals, I specialize in treating couples working through difficult relationships. I use a combination of cognitive restructuring and insight oriented therapy to help my clients grow. My aim is to help my couples develop the skills they need to overcome the difficult emotions and events of their past and live more fulfilling lives together.
