About this pro

Are you looking for a psychologist who will understand you and your situation? The single-best predictor of therapuetic success is the strength of the therapist-client relationship. I use the term "client" rather than "patient" because it reflects my belief in you, who is deserving of unconditional positive regard, empathy and non-judgement. Sometimes life presents us with situations beyond our ability to cope effectively on our own, it is wise to reach out for help. Please call or email me for a free consultation to decide if you feel I am the right guide for you on your path toward the life you desire. 
I use a wide variety of treatment approaches and techniques to help you and/or your family reach your goals of a balanced, happy and well-adjusted life. With a strong psychodynamic and family based approach, I integrate multidisciplinary and evidenced-based techniques to help you find your motivation for a quality life.
We all have difficulties in life. Those who succeed know when to get help. I'm not just a psychologist, I am a person who has struggled and learned that taking the space for friends, for laughing, meditating and exercising, is at the center of a healthy life.
