Therapy is a process of self-discovery and self-awareness. I collaborate with you, to uncover or rediscover your own abilities. I view my patients as resourceful and resilient in the face of adversity.
A Strengths-Based Social Work practice is empowering. Traditional psychotherapy often defines an individual’s poor functioning in terms of psychiatric diagnoses. I encourage and support my patients to be active participants in their healing process.

“Psychotherapy is a modern art, the product of ancient traditions intersected with modern cultural and technological paradigms. Also called “the talking cure”, psychotherapy involves treatment of mental disorders or emotional problems, but it also may focus on healthy development leading beyond issues of illness and limitation towards self-actualization and self-exploration.” Dr. Michael Bennett.
