Welcome and thank you for your interest. The process of choosing a psychotherapist can be an art and science in and of itself. The psychotherapy profession offers a myriad of specialties and approaches; just how to find the right therapist for you can be no easy task. One thing to keep in mind is how an individual therapist views the process of personal growth and change. In this spirit, let me introduce my work.

In today's fast-paced, externally focused world, there is so much we experience, yet we have limited opportunities to slow down and register how these experiences really impact and shape our lives. Similarly, we consume a massive amount of information consciously and unconsciously every day, but little time to think about what propels us to action, or what keeps us stuck in place.

A reflective space and a therapist who can help you make contact with your deeper truth can empower you to create a more meaningful and satisfying life.

Psychotherapy and Psychoanalysis can offer an opportunity to see further into your self and into aspects of your life that really matter. Creative potentials are in the making when self- defeating thoughts and behaviors are given a space to be worked through, clearing the path to a more generous way to be with oneself and others.

I believe in a collaborative process in which both therapist and client are co-participants in transformation. Successful change requires a therapeutic conversation based on mutual respect and trust; empathy employed with skillful insight are essential elements for self-growth.
