HOW I WORK

No single style of therapy works for everyone—that’s why I combine different therapeutic approaches (especially neurobiological & somatic perspectives) and customize my work according to each client’s unique strengths, experiences and background.

The foundation of my work is psychodynamic, which means we’ll explore your past, relationships, and patterns of behavior together, gaining insight into how we can help you move forward. If you read ‘psychodynamic’ and are wondering if I’m going to be a blank-faced Freudian who just says “mmhmm,” don’t worry—I show up as a present, engaged, real person every time we meet.

The most important thing you need to know is that my style is collaborative. I value your feedback and will regularly check in to see if we’re on the right path. My goal is to make this process work for you.
