My psychotherapy sessions center around your specific concerns. The focus of psychotherapy, broadly and within each session, is guided by what you seek to change. Individuals use psychotherapy to make changes in a wide variety of areas, which in turn can lead to other (sometimes unexpected) positive outcomes such as heightened self-awareness and well-being, closer connections with others, improved daily functioning and fulfillment, greater clarity in decision-making, enhanced focus and productivity, and deeper satisfaction with the quality of their lives.
In addition to a strong commitment to psychotherapy based on your particular needs, I bring a caring presence and professional expertise informed by more than 18 years of clinical practice as a licensed psychologist. I have found that good psychotherapy promotes discernment of one’s difficulties, helps enhance wellness and alleviate distress, and invites compassion for the suffering and vulnerability that arise with those difficulties. I believe that psychotherapy is ultimately beneficial in helping individuals to live well, to develop authentic and enriching relationships, and to find meaning and fulfillment in their lives. Through many years of practicing as a psychologist, I consider psychotherapy to be a highly valuable process of investing well in oneself to yield immediate and future benefits.
