Regardless of who walks through my office door and what issues they’d like to tackle, my first focus as a clinician is to provide a safe and collaborative space to let the work take shape. You may be experiencing depression, anxiety, grief, a seismic transition, are unsatisfied with the direction and quality of your work or relationships, or just feel there are too many seemingly insurmountable barriers to living the kind of existence you want and imagine. Together, we’ll explore the terrain of your life with non-judgmental stances so everything, no matter how seemingly unique or even taboo, can see the light of day. I’ll approach our sessions with curiosity, engagement, kindness, and a sense of humor. What I hope more than anything is that, over time, you begin to get a sense of the difference between just getting by and thriving.
While each client is different, I tend to work most often through a handful of theoretical lenses, including psychodynamic, existential, humanistic, and mindfulness. I have specialty training and background in substance abuse counseling for both individuals and groups in an outpatient setting as well as a decade of coaching senior executives in multiple business sectors.
