I believe that a trusting relationship with your therapist is critical to successful therapy. I have placed a great deal of importance in understanding each individual who walks into my office. Listening is really important in getting to know my patients. I believe my compassion, empathy and insight have helped me develop as a therapist, as well as my commitment to advanced training and peer consultation. Therapy is a process in which both patient and therapist work together to find meaning. I am very engaged in the therapy and work toward helping each patient in a way that proves helpful.
Group therapy can be a very powerful experience in which individuals come together to grow through the group process. I hope to provide a group culture in which participants feel safe and respected as they begin to share their lives and struggles. I work with adult men and women in groups as well as adolescents.
