Personal Statement

Personal Statement:
As a licensed psychotherapist, my passion is helping people who want to look at their lives and discover new ways to face the inevitable challenges. My approach is warm, relational, and intelligent. It is informed by attachment, neuropsychology, and psychodynamic theories. While listening forms the cornerstone of my work, I do more than just listen: I am engaged and interactive, offering ideas and support in a safe and collaborative environment.
