I work with people to transform painful life experiences into pathways of change.

My approach is relational and psychodynamic. This means that, within the space of a responsive and engaged therapy, we will be reflective as well as interactive. In our work together, you can anticipate that as we tend to the problems of the here-and-now we will also consider, and get curious, about aspects of your history.  My experience has led me to believe that this type of work leads to meaningful change.

Consultation

I provide clinical consultation for therapists and therapists-in-training who are interested in developing a deeper understanding of socio-cultural dynamics within clinical work. My belief is that the way identities are held and reflected in the cultural surround is an impactful and meaningful relationship. I use the term 'relationship' broadly, and hold that it encompasses both interpersonal and intrapsychic dynamics. It is my belief that this trifecta of understanding: socio-cultural awareness, emotional histories and psychological development, can provide a prism in which effective treatment can occur. I provide clinical consultation such that clinicians can further understand the experiences of their clients through a culturally responsive and psychodynamic lens. 

Please feel free to contact me if you would like to set-up a brief phone meeting to discuss ways in which we may work together.
