In life, we all experiences times of emotional pain. Sometimes this pain may lead to suffering experienced as depression, anxiety, and other symptoms. This may in turn impact your relationships, professional & academic goals, and overall well-being. I work collaboratively with each client to relieve suffering and see enduring results.
Medications may be a helpful component to address mental health concerns. If indicated, I work with each client to carefully consider the best medication and non-medication options, as part of a holistic treatment plan.
Often, many clients see more robust and enduring improvement when psychotherapy is part of treatment. I provide a nurturing, but active therapeutic relationship to address the root cause of your suffering, and not just address symptoms.
I tailor my therapy on each individual’s needs and am informed by psychodynamic, emotionally-focused, and experiential foundations. Many find this journey a worthwhile investment that fosters healing, resilience, and growth, long after treatment has completed.
