What is your philosophy and therapy style?

My clinical style is individualized, holistic, and present-focused, incorporating psychodynamic theory, cognitive-behavioral techniques, mindfulness practices, and neuroscience research.

Clients generally find me to be kind, gentle, thoughtful, and non-judgmental. I have a sense of humor and believe in the healing power of laughter (as well as tears).

I take an active role in the counseling process, asking lots of questions to make sure that I understand correctly, and giving feedback about what I see and hear.

I respect my clients’ personal values, religious beliefs, and lifestyles, and have worked well with adults of all ages, ethnic backgrounds, and gender orientations.
