Simply put, I work with people who are struggling. I help them understand themselves more fully and in so doing, create lives that are more satisfying and productive.
Sometimes people want help with a very specific issue–say, relationship conflict within a couple–and other times, individuals have a core sense that something isn’t “right” in their lives, and want help in figuring out what’s working, and what needs to change.
I work from a psychodynamic perspective, meaning that I value the influence of our past experiences on our present circumstances, and believe that our behaviors and feelings are powerfully affected by motives outside of our conscious awareness. The more we understand about ourselves and our pasts, the more power we have to decide how we want to live in the present.
I work with older children, adolescents, adults, couples, and families in my practice. Please visit the Family Therapy page if you’d like more details on how I work with the entire family unit.
