In my current private practice, I work with individual and couples, and employ an integrative approach to treatment, exploring how each client’s personal history and relationships have contributed to their resilience, or difficulties, in their current daily life. I work with adults, age 18 and over, with a focus on issues including chronic pain, and issues of aging. I possess extensive experience in treating anxiety, depression, trauma history, and interpersonal relationship issues, inclusive of family and significant others.I also have a strong background in business, and as such possess an in-depth knowledge of career concerns, and how who we are in our work impacts all aspects of our lives. As an Interpersonal therapist, I view what makes us unique as a culmination of who we are in this world, the influence and impact of our significant relationships, and of our environment. In this view, problems are opportunities to understand ourselves better, and to poise us for growth.
