I offer individual psychotherapy, brief and long-term, to help adults and children understand themselves better and deal with life's challenges and make the most of their potential in the areas of interpersonal relationships at home, school and work.
I work with a wide range of issues from adjusting to a positive life change to the effects of childhood trauma.
My approach integrates psychodynamic/psychoanalytic and supportive therapies. I believe the most important factors leading to positive change in therapy are the patient's motivation as well as a positive, collaborative, and professional working relationship in which the person can feel accepted, supported and understood.
