I have over 25 years of experience treating individuals suffering from anxiety, depression, trauma, loss, relationship problems and life adjustment issues. I also work with couples using an attachment-based/object-relations framework. Early in my career, I worked in a community-based residential treatment program for adjudicated youth and then spent a few years working in community mental health doing therapy and supervising interns. I believe that therapy is most effective when the patient is seen as a whole person and not just in terms of their symptoms. I provide a growth-promoting relationship in therapy to help people feel more empowered in their lives.
