Individual Therapy


When you come down to it, therapy is all about relationship. I strongly believe (and research supports) that a safe and empathic relationship with your therapist is essential for therapy to be truly effective.  From the context of this therapeutic relationship I help my clients create more meaningful and connected relationships with others—and with themselves.

I specialize in working with 20 and 30 something adult individuals, and that usually means that in session we’re exploring issues around identity formation, self esteem, family, boundaries, romantic and peer relationships, and career.

I typically work with individuals in weekly sessions lasting 50 minutes. Longer or more frequent sessions can be scheduled if together we feel it is therapeutically necessary.
