Areas Of Specialization
I work from psychodynamic and relational perspectives but will use a variety of approaches and techniques to tailor treatment to the individual. My style is warm, engaging, and interactive. I believe that the quality of the relationship between therapist and client is of primary importance and that the success of the therapy depends on it.
I offer a complimentary 10-15 minute phone consultation to assess your needs and schedule the initial consultation. The call will give you a chance to tell me what you’d like to address in therapy and ask me questions about my practice. If you decide to schedule an initial consultation with me, it will usually be 1-3 sessions. In this time, we will assess whether we are a good fit, delineate goals for therapy, and get to know each other. After that time, if either of us decides that we are not a good fit, I will refer you to another therapist and do my best to help you find a good match.
If you and your partner are struggling with connection and communication, you may benefit from couples work. Or, if you are having trouble getting pregnant, staying pregnant, and/or dealing with pregnancy loss, I would be happy to help you navigate this stressful time. Please contact me to learn more.
I would love to give a talk, workshop, or presentation to your group! Presentations can be tailored to the needs of the audience and size of the group. If you are interested in any of the topics found below, please get in touch for information about my fees.
