My style is best described as warm and engaging, and I often hear clients say, "My previous therapist didn't say much or give me helpful feedback." I consider therapy an active collaboration to help you have a different experience of yourself. I endeavor to create a safe space for you to grow and evolve, whether we work together short- or longer-term.
How I work with patients depends largely on your goals, however, I draw from many different theoretical perspectives to remain up-to-date and creative in helping clients. Broadly speaking, I practice a blend of psychodynamic, interpersonal, and supportive psychotherapy in conjunction with evidence-based treatments like Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) for individuals, and Emotionally Focused Therapy (EFT) for couples. My theoretical home is Attachment Theory.
Although I do not prescribe medication, I have a strong working knowledge of psychiatric medications and consult regularly with psychiatrists and other treating professionals to coordinate care. If needed, I am happy to provide referrals for other specialists including psychiatrists, sleep specialists, etc.
