Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
I offer psychotherapy for individuals and couples. Through personalized, thoughtful support and guidance, you can experience more satisfaction and success in your life. In my practice, I work with a range of issues including depression, anxiety, relationship concerns, fertility, adoption and family planning, self-esteem, communication, career changes and life transitions. I feel that a supportive environment is helpful but an active, challenging environment can facilitate change. My training as a licensed therapist is in Cognitive Behavioral techniques and Psychodynamic Psychotherapy. I am also trained in Mindfulness Stress Reduction which can be very useful in addressing mood issues and anxiety. Combining these tools allows for practical solution-focused techniques that make measurable change while depth psychotherapy can help address the long-standing behavioral patterns that contribute to who you are. I am interested in why individuals continue patterns that do not work and I feel a deep motivation to assist in change. Goals often include more meaningful relationships with oneself and others and a sense of experiencing life more positively.
