"[If] society is in danger, it is not because of man's aggressiveness but because of the repression of personal aggressiveness in individuals."

I am fascinated by the human mind and have a deep respect for the courage it takes for an individual to chose therapy as a means to understand and ease painful emotions. My primary theoretical orientation is psychodynamic psychotherapy. I believe psychodynamic work offers individuals the opportunity to explore their life story and make sense of patterns that have not served them well and to understand ways to alter their behavior and to create healthy change.

In addition to my work with adults, I have experience working with children and adolescents in both day treatment and school settings. I currently share my time between Water’s Edge Psychotherapy and St. David’s Center for Child and Family Development.
