My goal as a therapist is to reduce suffering, to help people improve their lives, and to help them build loving, supportive, and fulfilling relationships.
My approach to therapy is integrative and Client-Centered, drawing on Psychodynamic, Relational, Cognitive-Behavioral, Exposure and Response Prevention (ERP), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) approaches.
I primarily specialize in helping those with Anxiety Disorders and Obsessive Compulsive Disorders, depression, grief/loss, LGBTQI issues and relationship difficulties. I enjoy working with clients from diverse backgrounds and with those facing oppression and/or discrimination.
Non-judgmental, open-minded, compassionate, Client-centered.
