I am an experienced therapist who uses an integrative approach in psychotherapy. My style is directive and challenging as well as empathic and understanding. I often start with a strengths based, cognitive behavioral approach, including dialectical behavior therapy and mindfulness. However, I also incorporate interpersonal and psychodynamic models as I find they provide the greatest, and most long-lasting results.
