Practice Philosophy

Using an eclectic approach to treatment including psychodynamic and cognitive-behavioral (CBT) techniques, we will work collaboratively to develop an in depth understanding of your present day situation and your specific desires for growth and change. We will explore your personality and identity development, as well as the probematic patterns of thinking and feeling that limit your experience. Our aim will be to foster a more authentic relationship with the self, which will allow for less inhibition and greater freedom in interpersonal relationships. This freedom is of primary importance for increased confidence and motivation, both key factors in helping you achieve your personal and professional goals.
