Treatment Philosophy

Change is always possible, even from a single conversation.

My primary responsibility is to provide the most effective treatment possible for you - according to YOUR needs.  Together we determine the nature of the problem that brought you to therapy,  unpack the problem's effects in the various areas of your life, identify your exisitng strengths and resources, and consider which therapeutic strategies could be most useful in reducing the problem's negative effects. 

​I believe it is important that I help you develop the ability to create a calm, relaxed & focused internal state, so that when you are faced with difficult choices - whether that has to do with school, work and/or relationship issues, the best path forward, becomes clear - and that, when you are experiencing moments of happiness, you experience them fully.
