I feel that psychotherapy is most effective when it is collaborative, flexible, and grounded in what is important to you. While I have training in a number of modalities, I am always learning from you. In light of that, I will meet you where you are and make space to explore new ways of being and understanding. People who have worked with me appreciate my patience, warmth, and attentiveness.
