More About Me

About My Practice

Beginning therapy can be daunting. However, many of the people I’ve worked with have found that it is a relief to unburden themselves to me and to get started on making some sense of the problems that have bothered them for a long time. In our sessions, we work to deepen what you know about yourself, working at a pace that feels comfortable.

Long standing negative beliefs and fears that you have about yourself and the role they’ve had in shaping you become clearer. We will work together to understand how these beliefs and fears have created obstacles to feeling more connected to yourself and others or to reach important life goals that until now seemed out of reach.

Helping you find ways to solve long-standing problems is the goal of our work. As you come to understand more about yourself, you’ll feel a growing sense of comfort, strength and ability to make good choices for yourself that lead to a better life.
