My approach is warm, compassionate and direct, meaning I am a nice combination of Northern California “soft” and New York “hard.” My clients experience me as accepting and empathic, while also feeling challenged just the right amount to grow and change.
My Philosophy is that we are all “perfectly imperfect.” So many people struggle to accept their inherent imperfections, their humanity. In my life, as a therapist and as a human being, I work to embrace my strengths as well as my imperfections, and I encourage my clients to do the same.
