Biography

I serve adolescents, college students, and adults who feel that they are suffering or perhaps feel “stuck” in their current situation due to sadness, worries about the future, negative self-evaluation, dissatisfaction with how they look, struggles with food, or difficulty navigating relationships. I also work with adult and recent survivors of traumatic and abusive relationships. When asked about my treatment approach, I often respond with “it’s ‘our’ approach.” My role is relational and collaborative: not tell you what to think or do, but rather, develop a relationship that allows us to explore where we might need to go. My specialty in developing strong, trusting, and therapeutic relationships is informed by contemporary relational psychodynamic thought, which asserts that there are always two people in the relationship, and that each are always impacted by the other. When we work together, it is understood that our experience is unique and real – not from a manual. My training and experience in both inpatient hospitals, outpatient treatment centers, and university counseling centers has taught me the value and power of authentic connection. It is my hope to share this with you in our therapeutic relationship. It all starts with a conversation that I look forward to having with you today.

Why should patients choose you as their provider instead of others in the area?

There are many qualified providers in the area. I believe that I offer a unique perspective and approach to treatment that truly emphasizes building a strong, trusting relationship in which we both are able to experience an authentic connection. This is done through establishing a sense of safety and stability. I view the therapeutic relationship as the vehicle for change for it is within the safety and stability of this trusting relationship that we are able to explore difficult emotions and experiences and engage with the psychic pain that ultimately brought you into treatment.

What are the top 3 treatments that you focus on?

Contemporary Relational Psychodynamic Therapy Dialectical Behavior Therapy Feminist / Relational Cultural Therapy

What are you proud of in your practice?

I am proud to be a practice that allows for flexibility in care not mandated or dictated by insurance or managed care companies. I strive to empower my clients and patients to take ownership of their treatment.
