Practice Description: I have been a psychotherapist for 25 years and have worked in a variety of outpatient settings. I am currently in private practice and work with a wide age range of clients; ranging from young adults through the elderly. I work with individuals who struggle with a variety of issues including anxiety, depression, bipolar illness, chronic illness, adjustment issues, relationship issues, trauma and abuse histories.

I am a relational therapist and my primary goal is to build a strong, trusting and empathetic therapeutic relationship. This lays the groundwork and is the most significant indicator of positive change. Clients have described me as warm, approachable and a good listener. I meet my clients wherever they are with acceptance and compassion.

I am skilled in a variety of interventions including cognitive-behavioral therapy, psychodynamically informed therapy, dialectical behavioral therapy and the practice of mindfulness meditation. I draw from all of these approaches, depending on my client's goals and what I deem will be most effective.
