My approach is flexible and active. I believe that we understand ourselves better by understanding our family relationships and history and I try to use the interaction between myself and my clients to further that self-awareness.

I believe that relationships are powerful and transformative and that therapy is a collaborative endeavor. Through exploring past and current relationships, and the internal world of thoughts and feelings, we work together toward changing self-defeating patterns and opening greater possibilities for a more fulfilling life.

In my work with clients flexibility, forthrightness, and respect for the client are essential to good therapy.

Theoretically, I utilize a Relational model, and incorporate elements of other psychodynamic approaches as the situation calls for it.
