I believe in long-term change and that therapy works best when we can make a commitment to the process. I work with individuals to develop greater capacities to tolerate negative emotions and work through difficult life experiences. Rather than seeking quick fixes, I work with individuals to understand the underlying dynamics that contribute to repetitive behaviors, disappointments, or ongoing suffering. I am ready and excited to accompany you through life’s most difficult challenges.
