My Approach and Style

My approach to psychotherapy is practical and eclectic, informed by psychodynamic, interpersonal, cognitive behavioral, supportive, mindfulness, mind-body, and family systems theories. I am continually learning and applying what I learn to broaden my practice and benefit my patients.

I draw on my multi-discipline training, my many years of practice, all that I have learned along the way from mentors and patients, my own experience as a mom, and my own yoga and mindfulness practice.

I bring warmth, empathy, sensitivity, an interactive style, and a good dose of humor to my work.

It is very important to me to create a safe and supportive space in which you can feel comfortable telling your story and expressing your concerns and anxieties.

And then I begin with YOU, the patient. I meet you where you are when you come to therapy: to understand what brings you at that moment in time and what you want to work to understand, change, and improve. I tailor our work together to your individual needs (and/or your needs as a couple).
