     I view psychotherapy as an interactive process between the therapist and client; its purpose is multi-fold. It can provide you with opportunities for healing from early and recent trauma, and foster self-growth; it can help you discover what is blocking you from having satisfying and rewarding personal relationships, and it can help build your confidence and self-esteem. Psychotherapy can provide you with the opportunity to develop self-awareness, to gain insight into how you view the world and your participation in it, and how many of your early life experiences have shaped you in both positive and not so positive ways.

     My goal is to create a safe place where you can talk about what’s most important to you. I am dedicated to helping you identify and explore all of your thoughts and feelings, at a pace that’s right for you. As we both listen to what you are presenting, we begin to discover the roots of your worries and concerns, and can then formulate a plan on how to address them. While this process can be challenging at times, it can be tremendously exciting and rewarding as you begin to discover that you can have feelings of hope and joy rather than pessimism and despair, and that you can make positive changes in your life.

     As an empathetic, skilled and caring therapist, I can help you experience a different type of relationship, perhaps one you’ve never had before. You will be supported and understood. You will be treated with dignity and respect, which can help you gain the courage to face the pain and suffering you have endured in your life. Having a trustworthy therapist who believes in you and in your potential to change and grow is essential to building a new sense of self. As the therapy unfolds, you will have the opportunity to learn how to trust your own judgment as you have the chance to practice and develop new skills. I am committed to your growth and healing and will work tirelessly to help you transform yourself into the person you want to be.
